Communicating Actionscript 3.0 to asp.net 3.5

Posted 24 March 2009 - 07:07 AM

Hello everyone,

I would love to post some code but i dont even know where to begin with this task. At work we are developing a page where we have condo vacations for sale and my boss wants a slideshow for the images of the condo. We pull the images off a MySQL database and it uses asp.net 3.5. I dont need thumbnails or anything fancy. Just a slideshow that allow the pictures pulled in from the database to be displayed.

an idea i had was pulling the data from the database into an xml then loading the xml into the flash. would that be a good idea or is there a way for me to cut out the middle man?(XML) Even with this approach i would need help with the xml portion of it.

Thanks for all the help guys!

You can use flashVars to pass data to flash direct from the page as part of the object tag. Here's a tutorial I wrote to explain how to use them: http://www.dreaminco...wtopic87635.htm

You can output data from you database directly to the object tag as name/value pairs which will be easily accessible in flash.
