I've setup a flash app which connects to a Coldfusion component. The component returns a list of telephone numbers and populates a list box in my flash App. Does anyone know how I get flash to automatically refresh the list box every 10 seconds thus checking the database for any new telephone numbers???

Any help would be very much apreciated.

Kind Regards,

Tim

Ask if you need help:

#include "NetServices.as"

NetServices.setDefaultGatewayUrl("http://localhost/flashservices/gateway");

remote_conn = NetServices.createGatewayConnection();

updateListboxService = remote_conn.getService("your_application.your_component");

customUpdateListboxResponder = {path:this};
customUpdateListboxResponder.onResult = function(result)
{
      // update your listbox with result
      this.callID = setInterval(this, "updatePhonesList", 10000);
};
customUpdateListboxResponder.updatePhonesList = function()
{
      clearInterval(this.callID);
      this.path.updateListboxService(this, parameters);
};
customUpdateListboxResponder.updatePhonesList();

If you are not using flash remoting:

data_var = new LoadVars();
data_var.path = this;
data_var.onLoad = function(success)
{
      if(success){
            // update listbox
            this.callID = setInterval(this, "updatePhonesList", 10000);
      } else {
            trace("SERVER ERROR");
      }
};
data_var.updatePhonesList = function()
{
      clearInterval(this.callID);
      this.load(component_url + "?q=" + new Date().getTime());
};
data_var.updatePhonesList();

Sorry, I looked at your code and don't understand :-| this is what code I have below, Is it possible to integrate your code into it?

====Sample Code===
// Include the Required NetService class files
#include "NetDebug.as"
#include "NetServices.as"
#include "DataGlue.as"
// connect to the Flash Remoting service provider
if (isGatewayOpen == null) {
      // do this code only once  
      isGatewayOpen = true;  
      // Make the Gateway connection
      NetServices.setDefaultGatewayUrl("http://10.1.9.4/flashservices/gateway");
      gatewayConnnection = NetServices.createGatewayConnection();
      Dynamo = gatewayConnnection.getService("cam_manager.system.dynamo", this);
      trace("Connected");
      // CALL Web service: Do initial Data load for List Box
      Dynamo.test1();  
      trace("sent request");
      }
      
// :::: DEFAULT RESPONDERS ::::
function test1_Result(result) {
      trace("server responded: Records: " + result.getLength());
      trace("setting the Drop Down");
//Add my results to the list box
      cb_parkType.setDataProvider(result);
      }
