First question I got is Making money using a free iPage web host? Thanks in advance for any answer or 2. Another quick question... I currently have the HTML area contribution on my OSC site. within the HTML Area I have embedded a flash movie that shows all our products in a more dynamic way than OSC can. The problem I am running into is being able to click an "add to cart" button in the flash movie and have it add the product into the shopping cart of OSC. Thats the first step.

color, flavor, size etc.etc.) and have both the product with the attribute get added to the cart in OSC.

I am hoping to get this working with a little help, and hopefully a good flash/OSC contribution can come out of this..

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I bump into an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

Thanks Iggy,.

I have this installed. It keeps the session varaibles with using flash..

Not exactly what I am looking for though.

I posted this at actionscript.org..

I currently have a Flash Movie with lots of products. It works like a shopping site. In each of the products I have either a single "Add to Cart" button or both "Add to Cart" and a combo box that has product attributes that need to be added to the action script to transfer to the php. I have all the values and product_id from the MySQL database. I have what I think the php code is:.

Productinfo.php.

<?php echo tep_draw_hidden_field('products_id', $product_info['products_id'])tep_image_submit('button_in_cart.gif', IMAGE_BUTTON_IN_CART); ?>.

Applicationtop.php.

// Shopping cart actions.

If (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['action'])) {.

// redirect the customer to a friendly cookie-must-be-enabled page if cookies are disabled.

If ($session_started == false) {.

Tep_redirect(tep_href_link(FILENAME_COOKIE_USAGE));.

}.

If (DISPLAY_CART == 'true') {.

$goto = FILENAME_SHOPPING_CART;.

$parameters = array('action', 'cPath', 'products_id', 'pid');.

} else {.

$goto = basename($PHP_SELF);.

If ($HTTP_GET_VARS['action'] == 'buy_now') {.

$parameters = array('action', 'pid', 'products_id');.

} else {.

$parameters = array('action', 'pid');.

}.

}.

I am not sure how to transfer the data of the combo box or just the "add to cart" button to the php page..

I dont necessarilly need to access the mysql database, because if there is a way to code the "add to cart" button to add product_id # whatever to the shopping cart I can hard code each product since we wont ever have more than 30-40 products. Any help would be very appreciated. I have been through countless forums to try and find an answer prior to posting w/o any luck..

Thanks in advance...

Hello,.

Maybe, I found a good solution but did'nt have time to test it or combine it with os commerce yet : Jgenerator ;.

A web server production application (written in Java language) that can dynamically.

Combine text, graphics, and sound to build rich Flash content..

Good luck and give us your feedback...

Didn't really take the time to look over this...but it sounds like you're using an application server to develop Flash movies using a programming language (other than actionscript). If this is the case, why not just use PHP?.

I currently have the HTML area contribution on my OSC site. within the HTML Area I have embedded a flash movie that shows all our products in a more dynamic way than OSC can. The problem I am running into is being able to click an "add to cart" button in the flash movie and have it add the product into the shopping cart of OSC. Thats the first step. The second step is to be able to have a combo box (drop down) in flash to choose an attribute (ie. color, flavor, size etc.etc.) and have both the product with the attribute get added to the cart in OSC.

I am hoping to get this working with a little help, and hopefully a good flash/OSC contribution can come out of this..

I have been going through actionscript forums as well as this one trying to figure out a solution to my problem. If any OSC gurus are ActionScript gurus I could really use some help with this issue..

Thanks in advance...
