Sending XML from Flash -- Need Help!

Does anyone know were on the web I can find a good example/tutorial of how to send XML from a flash movie and receive it in an ASP or CGI?

Also, do you know if Flash does something weird to the flash document when it sends it? I've written an ASP to receive XML which works fine with XML from a CGI and an ASP, but not with the Flash, even though I'm using the same XML data.

I haven't been able to find much information on this on the web or in reference books, and I would be really grateful if someone could point me in the right direction.

Thanks

Thanks Shekar,
I'd already had a look at that article. It only seems to read the XML, I need to know how to send it as well.

Got to the archives at http://www.chattyfig.figleaf.com
There is a lot of discussion on this list invovlving XML and Flash, also if you have a question you can sighn up for the list.  This is a very advanced list and involves receiveving numerous emails a day.  Also this list is very topic oriented towards Action Scripting and using XML.  
Colin Moock also has a some examples at moock.org invovlving the usage of XML

I hope this Helps
Let me know

Do you only want to know how to send it to ASP or do you also want to know how to create the XML first?

Sending it is easy: assign the entire root node to a variable and use getURL to send your variable and content to the asp-file.

If you want to know how to create XML - I read a tutorial the other day, if you want I'll try to search for it again.

baptiej,

You seem to be experiencing some difficulty with this site.

I'm posting the following in every question that appears to be abandoned, so please do not take this personally. But please do take it seriously and take positive action around this.

Please look at your profile, you can find it here:
http://experts-exchange.com/jsp/memberProfile.jsp?mbr=baptiej&showQHistory=true
Please note that there are two pages of information, only the first one is shown. All questions flagged as Locked or Unlocked are waiting for your input.

Experts-Exchange is not a news group, in which you can post a question, get the answer, and walk away, or ignore any posts that do not serve to solve your problem.

You can read more about how the site works in our member agreement: http://experts-exchange.com/jsp/infoMemberAgreement.jsp

Although the agreement tells you something about how the site works, it doesn't tell you much about the netiquette that has evolved on our site. In Experts-Exchange it is expected that you always provide feedback to those who participate in the questions that you post. And I'll explain why this is the case.

When a question is resolved, it becomes a Previously Answered Question, and will be stored in the database. Users who have similar problems can buy your question for 1/10 of the original point value in order to find a solution to *their* problem.

A a result it is important that you provide feedback to our experts

If an expert provides a suggestion that solves your problem, award them by grading the answer so that the question does indeed become such a "PAQ". That way future visitors of this question get the most out of it.

If you did *not* get a satisfactory response to one of your questions, you have to tell participants that this is the case, so that they know that you have read and understood their suggestions, even though it didn't help you. After that, by all means, you can contact me or post a question in the Community Support topic area, and ask us to delete the question and refund your points.

I would also like you to consider this: Our experts are willing to spend some of their precious time to help you solve your problem. A lot of our experts are professionals, to whom time is money. And they're willingly giving up some of their time to help you.

And the only thing we're asking in return is a bit of feedback and an effort on your behalf to participate according to our member agreement and our peculiar brand of netiquette. I think that is a pretty good deal, don't you?
