hi experts,

im working on a site using ActionScript2. Im at "Login" section, where i need to read some variables from a .txt file and load them in a movieClip. see the following code:

this.createTextField("hty", 1, 100, 180, 450, 40);
hty.multiline = true;
hty.wordWrap = true;
var my_fmt:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
my_fmt.font="Tahoma";
my_fmt.size=14;
my_fmt.bold=true;
my_fmt.color = 0xFFFFFF;
hty.text="Verifying your credentials...";
hty.setTextFormat(my_fmt);
hty._visible=true;

this.createEmptyMovieClip("target_mc", this.getNextHighestDepth());
target_mc.user_activationk = NULL;
target_mc.loadVariables("login.txt");
function checkParamsLoaded()
{
 
 if (target_mc.user_activationk == NULL) 
  {
   target_mc.loadVariables("login.txt");
  }
 else
  {

          //this code create the login result text
          if (target_mc.user_m=="ok" & target_mc.user_p=="ok" & target_mc.user_stts=="activated")
           {
             result="Welcome " + target_mc.user_n + " " + target_mc.user_ln + ".";
             user_loged=true;
           };
          if (target_mc.user_p=="nok")
           {result="Wrong password.";};
          if (target_mc.user_m=="nok")
           {result="You are not registered yet.";};
          
          if (target_mc.user_stts=="verifying" & target_mc.user_m=="ok" & target_mc.user_p=="ok")
           {result="You did not activated your account. Check your emails to activate it.";};

          hty.text=result;
          hty.setTextFormat(my_fmt);
          hty._visible=true;

          clearInterval(param_interval);
  }
}
var param_interval = setInterval(checkParamsLoaded, 100);

target_mc.unLoadMovie();

Open in new window


Basically as long as "target_mc.user_activationk" is NULL the code is still reading the .txt content. The .txt content contains the values of the variables in a query form and the "user_activationk" variable is the last one in the query. Once the reading reach the last variable in the .txt the result is defined in some "if" decision codes and display it on the screen by setting the "hty.text" TextField.

The code works fine at first running, but if i try to run it the second time with different user credentials it shows the first user credentials and then the execution is stopped, the browser cracks.
I suspect the last line doesnt clear the "target_mc" object. Is there any other way to "reset" the content of it?

Any help in this matter will be highly apreciated.

Thank you in advance.
Raul
