I'm new to AS2 and I have been so frustrated trying to do
what I think is easy. I've searched and experimented for hours and
my brain is sizzling.
I need to have a search box, and when the user types in a
term and hits submit, I want it to go to a URL and add
"srch=<whatever is typed in the box>" to the URL address. In
other words, if you type in "Cattle dog" as your search term, I
want the URL to read "
dog". This should be so easy.
I have a TextInput box called "search_txt" and a submit
button called "submit_txt".
and "var fullURL:String = searchURL + myTextField.text;" gets
attached to the submit button, correct?
Again, please understand I'm in over my head here. Baby steps
are most useful!
Finally, do I need to use LoadVars to send this final data
off to the server or can I just have it go to the specified URL
+search term address? My programmer can do what needs to be done if
I can simply supply that address.
