hello,
i have a .swf file with 4 (red, blue, yellow, green) buttons. each time a button is clicked it sends a var to a php file which writes it to a .txt file. it works, but not the way i need it to work. it wont work with multiple clicks on a given button. if you click the red button 3 times it only registers once, you have to refresh the page and click again for it to register another click. i need it to register clicks without refreshing...is this possible?
//ACTIONSCRIPT FOR THE BUTTON
 
_global.increaseTally = Number(1);
 
_root.bt1.onPress = function(){
loadVariablesNum ("TALLY.php?count=" + _global.increaseTally , 0);
}
 
//TALLY.php
<?php
if (file_exists('total.txt')){
	$fil = fopen('total.txt', r);
	$dat = fread($fil, filesize('total.txt'));
	fclose($fil);
	$fil = fopen('total.txt', w);
	fwrite($fil, $dat+$count);
	}
	else{
	$fil = fopen('total.txt', w);
	fwrite($fil, $count);
	fclose($fil);
	}
?>

are u adding file size to the number of count ?

$dat = fread($fil, filesize('total.txt'));

fwrite($fil, $dat+$count);
$fp = fopen('data.txt', 'w');
fwrite($fp, '1');
fwrite($fp, '23');
fclose($fp);
 
if (file_exists('total.txt')){
        $fil = fopen('total.txt', 'a') or die("can't open file");
        fwrite($fil, $count);
        fclose($fil);
}
else {
        $fil = fopen('total.txt', w);
        fwrite($fil, $count);
        fclose($fil);
}
