flash/actionscript load from php

5 New Member
Hello I have a problem: I have a database(mysql) with the following fields:
test, descr, title
I want to display them into a flash file.
Now my php file called list.php (which collect the information from my database) is the following:

include_once '../library/config.php';
include_once '../library/opendb.php';
$query =mysql_query("S ELECT * FROM `$table` ORDER BY(`title`DESC ");

$cant=0 ;
while($row=mysq l_fetch_array($ query)){
echo "$cant=$row[title]&$cant=$row[descr]&$cant=$row[test]";
echo "cant=$cant ";

My flash file has 3 input dynamic text (to display the database)called titletx, descrtx, testx.
and I put an actionscript code to call the php file into my flash file here it is:

myData = new LoadVars()

myData.load("ww w.ilgerss.it/mazzi/list.php")
myData.onLoad = function(succes ){
for(var i=0; i<this.cant; i++){
titletx.text = this.title
descrtx.text = this.descr
testx.text = this.test
trace("Error loading data")

everything is in one fotogramma: the input dynamic text and the actionscript code.

Can anyone be so kind to tell me why this code do not work? or have any suggestion?

I have the same darn problem...... You by chance haven't figured it out have you? I can get mine to load the actual text within the PHP but not the results of the execution..

Try putting some trace functions in to see what you are actually getting when you load list.php.

You cannot reference arrays inside strings in php, this will produce an fatal error if i recall correctly. You also need to encapsulate the argument in the array with quotes.
Just so there's no confusion, i also always escape variable calls too, making the echo statement look like this:

echo $cant . "=" . $row['title'] . '&' . $cant . "=" . $row['descr'] . "&" . $cant . "=" . $row['test'];

since $cant is an increasing integer your string would now look something like this:

0=rowtitle&0=ro wdescr&0=rowtes t

I'm pretty sure AS treats this string just like PHP would treat a querystring, meaning yoo actually only have one variable, and you overwrite it constantly

The solution would be to either put some square brackets around them (loading it as an array), like this:

echo $cant . "[]=" . $row['title'] . '&' . $cant . "[]=" . $row['descr'] . "&" . $cant . "[]=" . $row['test'];

or use a prefix:

echo 'title_' . $cant . "=" . $row['title'] . '&descr_' . $cant . "=" . $row['descr'] . "&test_" . $cant . "=" . $row['test'];

Either way, try turning on all error messages on your PHP server and check out the response. If that don't work, that's where you start

Another idea might be to set the mimetype of the php file to text.

And like Motoma said... trace every step of the execution.

Hi, I've got a list of radio stations that load from an XML file into dynamic textboxes. The text loads fine, but some of them have links that are supposed to show up, but they don't.
