    Load an External Php variable into Actionscript in flex.




      i have being trying to load an external variable from a php file into a actionscript variable.i know how to bind php data from mysql to datagrid but this is not what im looking for,Example say a varaible in php has value =5, this value should be passed to a actionscript variable limit,so now limit will have value 5.


      I am using flex 3 and i have tried lot of examples listed on google,i have gone through all the tutorials,codes..etc..all of them were made using cs3 or cs4.And when i ran them i dint get any output at all.Either i got thatproperty  loader wasnt defined or nothing in my textarea.


      if possible please guide me on the following or kindly give a small sample that works on flex3.i am also not sure of what i shud write in my php file.


      i have added the code of my mxml file for this which is not working and shows me a blank textarea.


      Any help would be appreciated..thanks in advance
