How to stop HTTPService alphabetically sorting values when sending url...

Dear Experts,

New to Flex and programming so not sure what to do. I am sending a request to url using HTTPService but the values are being sent in alphabetical order and causing the request to fail or not work so to speak. I need the values in  the <mx:request> to be sent in the specific order in which there listed in the  <mx:request> tag.

How do I do this?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:WindowedApplication xmlns:mx="" layout="absolute">
private function goLogin():void {
<mx:HTTPService resultFormat="e4x"  id="httpSvc" url="" showBusyCursor="true" useProxy="false" method="GET">
      <mx:request xmlns="">
<mx:Button x="99" y="155" label="login" click="goLogin();"/>

umm, I think we just fixed that
you could link this to the other question as the URLRequest code I posted in there is the solution to this question

So is the answer that there is no settings with the HTTPService tag to stop this from happening?
That appears to be the case e.g. I just tested a simple object with three parameters.

  var params:Object = new Object();
                params.param3 = '3';
                params.param2 = '2';
                params.param1 = '1';
  param1 = "1"
  param2 = "2"
  param3 = "3"

So it seems to be more of an AS3 fundamental than related to just httpservice parameters
