NavigatetoURL and URL Request both Together doesn't work in Flex As3

Hi experts,

I have created sample code here.

I need to send two calls on different URL by clicking on one Button.

In my code I have created one URL Request to some PHP link..(You can use HTTP service too..It does same problem)..When Request to URL sent , I just place another code to navigatetoURL to another link.You can see the result only works with naviagetoURL ..Call to PHP link used by URLRequest FAIL..

How can I come out from this Problem?

When I try to use two HTTPservice that calls to different URL on SingleButton Click, It fails  with first call too..How can Flex work with Concurrent Calls /multiple calls with Single Button Click..?
I need to send two calls on different URL by clicking on one Button..How to achieve this?

It doesn't FAIL but call never proceed in browser.

Please check sample code here with browser on any sample PHP file.you will never get POST variable p1 in PHP/.NET at serverside..

I tried with HTTPSERVEVICE too,
 var _serv :HTTPService = new HTTPService();
            _serv.url="http://www.snowflax.com/Bluetoad/test_clone.php";
             _serv.request.data = "WHATEVER YOU WANT IT TO BE";
             _serv.method = "POST";
             _serv.send();

than
var urlRequest:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://google.com");
            navigateToURL(urlRequest,"_blank");

POST to PHP files FAIL

if u don't do the navigateToURL afterwards, your POST is successful?
i don't have access to flex environment to setup test case.

"if u don't do the navigateToURL afterwards, your POST is successful? "
Yes If I remove naviagetoURL,I can receive POSTED data from Flex to PHP


"so if i click the button currently i get to google. are you saying in your case in hangs before then?"
I can see only Google, but if you track the call
var req :URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://www.snowflax.com/Bluetoad/test_clone.php");
was in loop..as per FireBug sceenshot :CAll-to-Service.png
 


You can experience to same thin in below Example too..You never get google.com on Button Click..that's the problem here.Call me multiple URLs never process ,only last call happens.

you'll need to tweak this method

   private function openWindows(n: Number):void {
        if (n < listingData.length) {
           navigateToURL(new URLRequest(listingData[n]), '_blank');
           callLater(callLater, [openWindows, [n+1]]);
        }
     }

at work right now. will try at home for you later okay.

Finally It works with URLLoader and URLVariables.

Need to add listener wehn URL Loads,
loader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE,sendURL);

Send URL:
function  sendURL(event:Event):void
                  {
                  var urlRequest:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://google.com");
                  navigateToURL(urlRequest,"_blank");
                  }


HTTPservice FAIL to load when we have parameters to send and than navigation..It does work without parameters.
If We use GET method in HTTPserive is works but FAIL when we have POST...amazing behavior.

Anyway,Check the corrected Code which works fine here..:)

Thanks blue-genie..
