Calling a webservice from flash 8- works in preview mode but not on live site

Hi,

i am experienced in working with webservices and calling them from various languages.  however, im not very experienced with flash and im trying for the first time to call a webservice function from actionscript in flash.  

i have the flash code working in preview mode - i.e. when i press F12 and it runs locally, i click the submit button and the code correctly calls the webservice function and returns the desired result.

however, when i export the movie, upload it to the live site and then browse to the site, the webservice function call no longer works - i dont get any return - its as if its not calling it at all or its crashing out somewhere during the call.

is there something different i need to do when deploying the movie, so that it will work on the live site?

here is the code for calling the webservice...

on (release)
{
      import mx.services.*;

      var strParam:String;
      var blnResult:Boolean;
      
      strParam= "test";
      ws= new WebService("http://www.myserver.com/ws.asmx?wsdl");
      cb= ws.fnTest(strParam);

      cb.onResult = function(result)
      {
            if (result == "true" ) {
                  txtSuccess._visible=true;
                  txtFailed._visible=false;
            }
            else {
                  txtSuccess._visible=false;
                  txtFailed._visible=true;
            }            
                        
      }      


}

as i said, this works fine in preview mode, but once i upload it to the server, it doesnt work.

please help!

thanks!

You might need to add a crossdomain.xml file to your servers webroot. More details can be found all around.

thanks - i had actually found the answer - this question is nearly 2 weeks old - it needed a proxy web service installed on the same domain - so its related to the crossdomain.xml solution you mentioned, so i'll just give you the points anyway

With crossdomain.xml you therefor don't need to run the flash and webservice on the same domain. Thats what it does.

But thank you for your points.
