OK, I understand, but what about flash?

Let’s come back to our flash example. If you want to execute the function say_hello_to_flash(), you just have to construct a string with the value like the function name.

So in the first frame we write the following actionscript:

my_func_name = “say_hello_to_flash”;

and then send the string to myscript.php:

loadVariablesNum(“myscript.php”, 0, “GET”);

Now, PHP will receive the string my_func_name. To call the function you have to “construct” the function call using the flash string:


That the basic idea, I used this method developing a quiz app. The function names were:

check_user, send_question, show_summary etc.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
