the tut in this link has everything for the most part that i want to do.
http://www.developphp.com/Flash_tutorials/show_tutorial.php?tid=39

what i want to do different is only send "parse"
i dont want to send "uname"

one more thing :
i only want one  var in the php file. so i want to get rid of var two.
and in the complete listener in flash render out trace(var1)

this might be verrry simple but i am having a really hard time figuring out what i'm doing wrong even with the awesome tut in the link. please help i am going nuts! lol

//////////////////////////////////////////////php

<?php if ($_POST['sendRequest'] == "DoIt") {print "var1=Did It";} ?>

///////////////////////////////////////////////as3 code:  
submit_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, btnDown);

function btnDown(event:MouseEvent):void {
var path:String  = "http://127.0.0.1/mypath.php";
var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
var varSend:URLRequest = new URLRequest(path);
      varSend.method = URLRequestMethod.POST;
      varSend.data = variables;
var varLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader;
      varLoader.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.VARIABLES;
      varLoader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, completeHandler);
              
               variables.sendRequest = "DoIt";      
               varLoader.load(varSend);
            
function completeHandler(event:Event):void{
      var phpVar1 = event.target.data.var1;
                      trace(phpVar1);
}      
}
