sendAndLoad -> php not executed

sendAndLoad - php not executed
on (release) {
mijnvar = new loadVars();
mijnvar.naam = _root.naam;
mijnvar.contact = _root.persoon;
mijnvar.adres = _root.adres;
mijnvar.from = _root.MailFrom;
mijnvar.tel = _root.telefoon;
mijnvar.bericht = _root.feedback;
if (mijnvar.sendAndLoad("http://URL/verzendflash.php",0,"POST")) {
gotoAndPlay(3);
}
}

I do not find the "verzendflash.php"-file in the acces-log of my site, so I think the sendAndLoad does not work/does not get executed => I do not jump to the third frame.

Thanks for your answer,

Mariëlle

Hello Fivez (next time don't accept the answer if you haven't gotten it to work yet .... I would have continued helping you ... :)  )

As to your current question, make sure that the url you point the send and load to is correct: http://URL/verzendflash.php  has to be accessible by browser as well.
Then are you testing this locally or on a server, because depending on that you will have to change the url.

I would not have accepted the answer if it did not work fine for at least three times.
The thing is: it worked fine untill I decided to compress the file while publishing to Flash Player 5. After the compression/conversion the sendAndLoad no longer worked.
It sounds strange: I know, but even returning to a copy before the compressing and returning to Flash player 6 did not help.

So now I've returned to the loadVariablesNum(...) and everything works fine again ! (If you remember loadVariablesNum(...) did not work before ... !)

If you can explain me how come, fine. But sendAndLoad is no longer in use.

Well, the LoadVars object is only available starting Flash 6 (or MX). So saving it as Flash 5 will either remove it from the code, or just render it useless. And if you have not LoadVars, then there is no sendAndLoad ..... :(

I am not sure what flash does when you set it to a lower version and then return to a higher version. But in Flash 6 the LoadVars is available and should work, so I would check the settings in the file and check the code.
Also try save as and make sure that you have flash MX selected ot later.
The last resort would be to create a new flash file in version 6 and then copy everything over from your current file.

Well, I'm glad it worked out.

I know it takes a bit of fiddling, I have done that quite a few times as well and tried out different things along the way. :)

Even if you WERE exporting for Flash 6+ the code wouldn't work.
You have:
if (mijnvar.sendAndLoad("http://URL/verzendflash.php",0,"POST")) {
gotoAndPlay(3);
}

The second parameter which you stated as 0 MUST be an object otherwise the sendAndLoad function returns false.  Therefore, it probably never calls the php file.  Do this instead:

receiver_lv = new LoadVars();
receiver_lv.onLoad = function (){
     trace(receiver_lv.somePHPVariable);
     gotoAndPlay(3);
}
mijnvar.sendAndLoad("http://URL/verzendflash.php", receiver_lv, "POST");


that should work.

To clarify:

To use sendAndLoad you need to establish two LoadVars. Otherwise sendAndLoad does not work as you would expect.

// actionscript :
receiver_lv = new LoadVars();
sender_lv = new LoadVars();

receiver_lv.onLoad = function (){
     trace(receiver_lv.somePHPVariable);
     gotoAndPlay(3);
}

sender_lv.somevarA = "something";
sender_lv.someOtherVar = "anotherthing";
sender_lv.sendAndLoad("http://URL/verzendflash.php", receiver_lv, "POST");

//

The old loadVars("url", receive_MC, "POST") routine is a real pain in the butt... however the send and load is much more elegant.
