    How to prevent basic auth dialog box?

    mxc10
      Hi all,
      I have a webservice protected with basic authtentication. From my understanding I thought it would be possible to prompt the user for a user name and password using a flex form and then do a setCredentials on the WebService object to provide the server with the needed info, thus avoiding the broswers dialog box.

      However this does not work and I still get the browser dialog box. Even worse if I log out of the flex application and try and log in as a new user it seems the old credentials are cached by the browser so the new user get security errors as the flex customer queried, sent as a parameter in the webserveice call, and getRemoteUser do not match up. This is how the app has been coded.

      Any idea?

      thanks
