      onSubmit = "window.current('','paradigm','width=800,height=600,resizable=yes,toolbar=no,menubar=no,l ocation=no');">

      <input type="hidden" name="failedurl" value="password.asp">
      <input tabindex="text" name="UserId">
      <br>
      <input type="password" name="password">
      <br><br>
      <input type="submit" value="Login">
      </form>

          To post a form like you want from Flash you just need to use the LoadVars class. Here is an example:

          var send_lv:LoadVars = new LoadVars();
          var response_lv:LoadVars = new LoadVars();
          send_lv.failedurl = "password.asp";
          send_lv.UserId = textfield_instanceName.text;
          send_lv.password = textfield_instanceName.text;
          send_lv.sendAndLoad(" http://someExternalwebsite.com/authentication.jsp", response_lv, "POST");

          This will send you form post to the server script and then any response from the server will be return to the "response_lv" variable and usable by in Flash.

          Do a search in the Help files for "loadvars" for more information and for security settings on crossdomain data transfers.

          Good luck with your program.

            i'm pretty sure i'm doing it wrong, so its not working! :) i understand the code.

            but there's still a difference between understanding and making it work.

            where do i put that block of code you gave me? in an on(release) { } of the button?

            i have it there and its not working. Documentation (and google) on loadvars didn't help much for my case.
