pass a variable to my php page.

hello,
i totally don't understand the logic behind javascript. It's been the most frustrating thing to try to to discipher.
I have this bit of code and I need to pass a variable ($bookid)  to the upload.php page. Sorry for the lengthy bit of code.
<?php
 
//session_start();
 
 
 
require_once("getid3/getid3.php"); 
 
$id3 = new getID3();
 
 
 
?>

change the following at the bottom of the code and in upload.php

$bookid=$_REQUEST['bookid'];
<div id="bookid"><?php echo $bookid;?></div>
 
<div id="flash_block" style="display: visible;">
 
						<div id="flashcontent"></div>
 
					</div>
 
					<script type="text/javascript">
 
						var fo = new SWFObject("uploader.swf?ul=100", "flash_uploader", "435", "40", 8, "#FFFFFF", true);
 
						fo.addParam("allowScriptAccess", "sameDomain");
 
						fo.addParam("quality", "high");
 
						fo.addParam("scale", "noscale");
 
						fo.addVariable("to", "upload.php?bookid=<?=$bookid?>");
 
						fo.addVariable("limit", "100");
 
						fo.addVariable("types", "video|text|pdf|image|audio");
 
						fo.write("flashcontent");

in your code, the only place you are passing the name variable is in the following function and it is going to index.php. you have to do a similar thing to pass the bookid to whereever you are passing the name variable.

you can call the function upload_complete with the extra var as shown below and it will get passed to the php page. same with wherever you pass vars to upload.php
	function upload_complete(name,size,type,ft,bkid)
 
	{
 
		window.location="index.php?name="+name+"&size="+size+"&type="+type+"&exts="+ft+"&bookid="+bkid;
 
	}

I would probably activate / uncomment session_start to be sur that $_GET and $_POST do work as expected

<?php
 session_start();
 require_once("getid3/getid3.php");

pain_is_relativeCommented:
What you need to do is attach your variable to the upload URL...

so: your upload url would need to be:

"upload.php?bookid=313"

(asuming that bookid is 313)
Then it would be in the GET data. and avaiable to your upload.php script.

obviuosly your javascript is making a request to your php script, much like you would if you were using a browser. the easiest way to pass on a variable whilst doing that is by attaching them after the url.. (this is a GET method) the other moethod is by POST, where you attach the information to the HTTP headers, which is a farmore complex task than is needed here.
