I'm using this to send my flash variables to javascript:

signup_btn.onRelease = function()
{
	my_vars = new LoadVars();
	my_vars.username = pogu_username_1.text;
	my_vars.pword = pogu_pword_1.text;
	my_vars.gname = pogu_gname_1.text;
	my_vars.lname = pogu_lname_1.text;
	my_vars.gender = pogu_gender_1.text;
	my_vars.contactno = pogu_contactno_1.text;
	my_vars.email = pogu_email_1.text;
	my_vars.dob = pogu_dob_1.text;
	my_vars.addres = pogu_address_1.text;
	my_vars.difficulties = pogu_message_1.text;
	
	
	getURL ("Javascript:submitregdata('my_vars')");
	
	//trace(my_vars);
};

Open in new window


However my javascript function is returning the variables as undefined. Any ideas?

I use ExternalInterface rather than getURL.

http://www.actionscript.org/resources/articles/638/1/Basics-of-using-the-ExternalInterface/Page1.html

Looks like this to call myJavascriptFunction from FLASH:
:
flash.external.ExternalInterface.call("myJavascriptFunction", arg1, arg2);

Is that relevant for AS2?

Absolutely.  I'm still stuck back in the dark ages with AS2 myself.  :)

You need to include this header line:

import flash.external.ExternalInterface

Actually what seems to be working now is with  the '+' concatenation:

signup_btn.onRelease = function()
{
	my_vars = new LoadVars();
	my_vars.username = pogu_username_1.text;
	my_vars.pword = pogu_pword_1.text;
	my_vars.gname = pogu_gname_1.text;
	my_vars.lname = pogu_lname_1.text;
	my_vars.gender = pogu_gender_1.text;
	my_vars.contactno = pogu_contactno_1.text;
	my_vars.email = pogu_email_1.text;
	my_vars.dob = pogu_dob_1.text;
	my_vars.addres = pogu_address_1.text;
	my_vars.difficutlies = pogu_difficulties_1.text;





	getURL("Javascript:submitregdata('" + my_vars.username + "','" + my_vars.pword + "','" + my_vars.gname + "','" + my_vars.lname + "','" + my_vars.gender + "','" + my_vars.contactno + "','" + my_vars.email + "','" + my_vars.dob + "','" + my_vars.addres + "','" + my_vars.difficutlies + "')");

//trace(my_vars.difficutlies);
};

What does the code for the Javascript function look like?  (The function we are calling)

We need to make the arguments on the FLASH side match the Javascript.  We may need to adjust code on both the FLASH and the Javascript to make it work easily.  Are you able to change the Javascript, or is that code already done?

Please post (at least) the Javascript source code for the submitregdata function so I can see it.

Thank you.
