Subject: FLASH: ASP to Flash - implied method and limitations
From: Neal Cabage
Date: Mon, 28 Feb 2000 17:45:24 GMT

I have a question about sending info from ASP to Flash.

Ok, so I know that I can send the info back to Flash by simply writing a
querystring containing the key/pair values but I am not *entirely* sure
what's going on here and thus the limitations are a little foggy to me.

I *presume* that this means that everything is being sent via the GET
method, back to Flash. If so, there is an implicit 2056 total character
(inlcuding hex-encoded values) limit on the v4 browsers for which I am
authoring. Thus, there is a definite limitation that would effect how I
approach sending data to Flash.

So, my questions the are:

1. Is this in fact using the GET method of is there something else going on
here?
2. Is there a away (presuming this is GET) to use the POST method instead?
Only examples I have found are passing data by writing the URLencoded
key-pairs.


Thanks.
Neal Cabage
