Now, behind the search button, we need to make a script that has this in it:
on (release, keyPress "") {
	c = 5;
	text.newoutput = "";
	loadVariablesNum ("http://bender.phpdeveloper.org/flash/flash.php?input="+input, 0, "POST");

	for (a=0; a<5; a++) {
		this = "blah"+a;
		that = eval(this);
		text.newoutput = text.newoutput+newa+" - "+that+"\n\n";
	number = count;

		gotoAndPlay (4);
This script will take that search term you put in and send it off to the PHP script waiting on the server. In this case, the address is "http://bender.phpdeveloper.org/flash/flash.php", and the extra part (="+input) will append the search term to the end of it and pass it to the script. The for{} loop on this side gets the info back from the script (all of the "blah" variables) and puts them in the window, then puts the number that it got back in the "Results Found:" window.

» 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.
