    Most baffling thing I have ever seen

    Hi there,

    I uploaded my site and the loadvariables commands stopped working. The pages with the variables on didn't even turn up in the temporary internet files folder.

    I switched the load variables commands to GetURL and the pages loaded correctly.

    Now get this........

    I downloaded the unworking swfs and the containing HTML file into my browser. As I just said , it doesn't work. Then I fished these files out of the browser cache and copied them to the desk top. Then I loaded them into the browser from the desktop and they started working!

    Same swfs, same browser, same server, same page requests but it only works if the files are loaded into the browser from the desktop!

    Time to stop work. Its either me or the computer.

    C.

    just a silly question

    but in your loadVariables, are you using absolute paths?

    how big are the variables, sometime it can take abit to load if your on dialup

    Did you embed your font into the text fields if that is what is using the variables

    Hey, thanks for the reply.

    I think I've worked out what it is.

    The site I'm working on is now using virtual SSL. This means that all secure requests go through a different domain to that of the website but then get routed back to the website's own domain.

    Recall that you can't load data into a Flash movie from a domain other than the domain which hosts the swf!

    So looks like Flash is incompatible with virtual SSL!

    Well actually I can use a 'shim' movie to access the secure domain.
