    Flash "Cookie" ?

      Is there a way you can send some type of object to a server from Flash? Just looking some general direction. Thanks!

          If you're sending to a server, SOAP may be your best bet. Considering
          using the WebService class (see the ActionScript 2.0 Language Reference for
          details). Your subject line mentions "cookie," though, which makes me
          wonder if you actually mean to save objects to the user's local machine. If
          that's it, look up the SharedObject class (again, AS 2.0 Language
          Reference), which is effectively Flash's version of a browser cookie -- but
          more powerful, because it saves more datatypes than text.
