Hi All,

I am having a bit of trouble retrieving variables from an ASP page. It returns the entire page whereas I just need the variable strAnswer from the page. Any suggestions? Please help.

Here is my code:

var loader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
        loader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, onDataSaved);
        loader.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.VARIABLES;

        var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://" + host + urlPath + "setXML.asp");
        request.method = URLRequestMethod.POST;

        var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
        variables.xmlString = str;
        variables.eltGuid = eltGuid;
        request.data = variables;

        loader.load(request);


    private function onDataSaved(e:Event):void 
    {
        var loader2:URLLoader = URLLoader(e.target);
        loader2.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.VARIABLES;
        trace(loader2.data.strAnswer);

    }

 With Page.Response
            .Clear()
            .CacheControl = "no-cache"
            .ContentType = "text/xml" 'use "text/html" if not XML
            .Expires = -1
            .AddHeader("Pragma", "no-cache")
            .Write("<root><row></row></root>")
            .End() ' This should stop the rest of your html markup showing. Alternatively you could remove the markup from the page.
End With
