as3 functionality in as2

Mar 1, 2012 3:56 PM

This is more of an as2 questions, but did not seem a section for that, so sorry if this is the wrong place.  


I am working with a template that is built in as2, and when a button is clicked, a new browser window opens to a specified url and some info is passed to the php file.   I already have this funcinality via as3 in another site, but my director wants it in this onld as2 template.


here is my as3 Code:


//Path to PHP File
var serverFile:String = "";
//Instantiate a new URLVariables Object
var postVariables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
//add custom variables
postVariables.GuestUserKey = 'myKeyInfo';
//Request the URL
var urlRequest:URLRequest = new URLRequest(serverFile);
//Assign data to URL = postVariables;
//Tell flash what method to send Data
urlRequest.method = URLRequestMethod.POST;
          //Open new page and pass URL and Varaiables.
catch (event:Error)
          trace(this + (event));


I need to achive this funcinality with as2 and here is what i have tried, but does not seem to work.


on (release) {
    var myLoadVar:LoadVars = new LoadVars;
    myLoadVar.GuestUserKey = 'myKeyInfo';
    myVars.send("", myLoadVar, 'POST');



also, I have no control over the php file
