Hello experts. I can't seem to get onHTTPStatus to do... well... anything!

Here's the code I'm playing with. Even the examples of onHTTPStatus wont work out of the box.

var myLoadVar = new LoadVars();

            myLoadVar.onHTTPStatus = function(httpStatus:Number)
                                {
                                        _root.test1 = this.httpStatus + " : " + Number;
            }
            
            myLoadVar.onData = function(dat)
            {
                      _root.test1 = dat + " : " + httpStatus + " : " + Number;
            }

myLoadVar.onLoad("http://www.yahoo.com");

All I want to do is return the status codes and be able to view them.

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

The last line should be load() not onLoad()...

myLoadVar.load("http://www.yahoo.com");

Please check the Flash Help page on LoadVars.onHTTPStatus for complete example code...

If I use a domain that is alive like:

                var myLoadVar = new LoadVars();
            
            myLoadVar.onHTTPStatus = function(httpStatus:Number) {
                       _root.test1 = this.httpStatus + " : " + Number;
            }
            
            myLoadVar.onData = function(dat)
            {
                  _root.test1 = dat + " : " + httpStatus + " : " + Number;
            }
            
            myLoadVar.load("http://www.yahoo.com");

My output is "<HTML><HEAD>";

Which is odd because I added " : " to both dynamic text instances.

If I use a domain that's down like:

var myLoadVar = new LoadVars();
            
            myLoadVar.onHTTPStatus = function(httpStatus:Number) {
                       _root.test1 = this.httpStatus + " : " + Number;
            }
            
            myLoadVar.onData = function(dat)
            {
                  _root.test1 = dat + " : " + httpStatus + " : " + Number;
            }
            
            myLoadVar.load("http://www.testw3w3.com");

I get "undefined : undefined : [type Function]" as my output. : - /


The examples don't help me as they don't actually work! No one seems to use it either... which makes me think it's broken / bugged??

Help would be much appreciated I'd love to be able to use it!!!!

onHTTPError may be useful in this instance, as anything that isn't an error will be alive.

I'll look into it.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

onHTTPError looks to be more for event handleing than what I'm doing.

onHTTPStatus would work better.

Well that was easy!

I had to change

var myLoadVar = new LoadVars();

To

var myLoadVar:LoadVars = new LoadVars(); Can we say redundant? Lol...

Thanks!!

I thought that it is not mandatory, but I guess it is...  Good find...  ;)

Oddly, I'm not sure what it was now!! : - /

I took the extra LoadVars out and it still worked...  I must have changed something inadvertently without realizing that it worked... or... there's a ghost in my machine!

In either case, here's my resulting test code (working this time):

Thanks again (and stay blue!)!!  =D

Here's the beta code:


// Coded by Dr34m3r with very special thanks to aneeshchopra, blue-genie and CyanBlue from Experts-Exchange.Com

_root._domain = "http://test.com";

checkDomainUp = function (_d)
{
            var myLoadVar = new LoadVars();
            
            myLoadVar.onHTTPStatus = function(httpStatus)
            {
                  if(httpStatus > 0 &&  httpStatus < 400)
                  {
                    _root._result = _d + " is alive with code " + httpStatus;
                  }
                  else
                  {
                        _root._result = _d + " is down with code: " + httpStatus;
                  }
            }
            
            myLoadVar.load(_d);
}

_root.checkDomainUp(_root._domain);

Oh and one more thing that's cool about this is, it seems to have a timeout of only 5 seconds, which saves me the trouble of trying to add a timeout code to it myself. =D
