Displaying Multiple Access Records with Flash and ASP

Appreciatable effort !!!
February 26, 2002 by Karim Moharram

I just wanted to thank you so much, as I've been through so much to find out the way in which I can do such I'm kinda fluent in Flash 5 and ASP.NET, and wanted to get a way between them to get working together..especially with databases...

Thank you very much once again...

P.S. I know that you were talking about ASP, but ASP.NET won't differ a lot, it's all the same concept...

Along these same lines, if anyone is interested, there's an excellent ASP generating wizard (shareware app) at:

Free if you just need to display data and only $29 if you need your visitors to be able to add/remove/modify records!!

I have updated the example to include presenting the data with Flash MX and the new DataGrid component. View at :
Display Images too ?

That's great and seems easy, but what about displaying images?
Or even, how can I do a 'mailto' for each name.

helped me obtain ideas about connecting datagrid Flash UI Component to a database... specially the string splitting... pretty cool, but i need another assistance regarding commanding Flash to display a picture directly out of a database... thanks for the tutorial... g'day...

just a hint

wouldb't it be easyer if you used xml?

i mean, you could return the records like <record name="John" email="" />.

i'm saying this only because the performance of splitting strings and using arrays ends up loosing against the performance of the xml object in flash mx. this counts only if you have a lot of records, of course. if you work with a few records only, you can forget all that i said, because time diferences aren't so noticed.

keep up with the good work...

Good Info, but didn't work for me

I followed the tutorial and I created my connection to SQL rather than Access. When I run the ASP I get the data as it said it would appear in the browser. I downloaded the Flash application and made sure the right ASP page was being called. However, no data ever appeared. It just sat there loading. I don't understand if thre is a problem in the code or if I have done something wrong. I wish it worked fro me ebcause I would really like to see the output.
