i have a form that i want to send its variables to a php file.

so i have this code in flash:


insertit.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, sendTheData);

function sendTheData (ev:MouseEvent) {
      var myReq:URLRequest= new URLRequest("insertit.php");
      myReq.method= URLRequestMethod.POST;
      var myVars:URLVariables= new URLVariables();
      myVars.firstNAME = fNAME.text; = EMAIL.text; = PHONE.text;
      myVars.lastNAME = lNAME.text;
      var myLoader:URLLoader= new URLLoader();
      myLoader.dataFormat= URLLoaderDataFormat.VARIABLES;
      myLoader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, tellMe);

function tellMe (ev:Event) {


and for now the php file only take the variables and does not do anything with it.

when i try to send the data i get this message in the output:


Error: Error #2101: The String passed to URLVariables.decode() must be a URL-encoded query string containing name/value pairs.

the first line is my trace and it shows thet it does come as name\value pair. so i have no idea what to do with the error message.

help will be very appriciated.

best regards
