    Character Limit for importing variables from PHP to FLASH?


    I was wondering if there is a character limit as to how much information you can return from PHP to FLASH. The reason I ask is I am taking information out of a Database, and it cuts one of the posts off. Is there some maximum value that is supported? And if not what could be the cause of this?

    I believe that the size limit for POST headers is of 65536 bytes, and less (1024?) for GET headers.
    If you're experiencing problems of this kind be sure you are
    urlencoding the data you send, sometimes is just a & that messes up with the parsing of arrived data.

    This is a bit of a longshot... Are you by any chance using Apple's new Safari browser to test your php stuff?

    I learned the hard way that there's a bug in Safari (beta) that drops the last post var. Even if you're not using Safari, you may wanna try the workaround: Add dummy vars to the beginning and and end of the list posted to your PHP script.

    Good luck.
