Here is my situation; I have a Flash mc (Flash 8) that passes variables to a php page, which then, in turn, uploads the variables into a MySQL database. Everything was working well until I added a javascript snippet to open a pop-up window, and then everything just went to pot! The variables didn't get passed from the Flash movie to the php script. In a panic, I removed the javascript, but the variables still aren't being passed.

My question is; does anyone out there lnopw whether or not javascript interferes with the passing of variables in from Flash to php? Should I be looking elsewhere for the source of my problem?

Thanks for any help.  ???

unless the javascript specifically accesses the $_GET variables and changes/deletes them, then no, it does not interfere with them.  your clue should have been your own attempt to fix it: if you removed the javascript, and it still doesn't work, then obviously that's not the problem. 

since by some coincidence it still doesn't work, even though you removed the javascript, i would a) check to see if you are uploading your reverted script to the correct place. b) go make sure that you didn't inadvertently remove some other piece of script, in addition to the javascript.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
