The third way you can modify the scheduler application is to use server-side scripts that read and write to a file. The ColdFusion versions of these scripts are provided here in this example, but if you need to use another technology, it is not too difficult. You need two scripts: one to write data and one to read the data. The write script should take two parameters submitted via HTTP POST: the name of the file to which to write and the data to be written. Here is the ColdFusion example that you should name LoadVarsSharedObjectSave.cfm:
<cffile action="write" file="#GetDirectoryFromPath(GetBaseTemplatePath( ))##FORM.name#.so" output="#FORM.data#" nameconflict="overwrite">
The other script should read the data from the file and return it to Flash. This script should accept a single parameter submitted via HTTP GET: the name of the file from which to read. Here is the ColdFusion example. You should name this file LoadVarsSharedObjectRead.cfm.
<cfsetting enablecfoutputonly="yes"> <cffile action="read" file="#GetDirectoryFromPath(GetBaseTemplatePath( ))##URL.name#.so" variable="data"> <cfoutput>#data#</cfoutput>
Finally, you should make a few changes to the client-side ActionScript code in the Schedule component. The relevant snippet of code from that component is shown here with changes in bold:
#initclip // The
deserializeObject( )functions are the exact same code // as the
deserializeObject( )methods of the
