I am fairly new to PHP, so please bear with me:
I am trying to write a php script that would read a text document on one machine and send that to Adobe Flex such that it would put that data into the appropriate fields.
I already have the connection between php and flex sorted out. But my only problem is trying to read the data on one’s computer.
This is what I have so far: (note I am doing this on a windows machine)
<?php // get contents of a file into a string $filename = "C:\Documents and Settings\me\Desktop\stationText.txt"; $return .= "<fileOpen>"; $handle = fopen($filename, "r"); if( $handle == false) die("unable to open File"); $contents = fread($handle, filesize($filename)); fclose($handle); $return .= "<viewData>".$contents."</viewData></fileOpen>"; echo $return; ?>
Note: I am sending the data to XML, such that it could be read in Adobe Flex (that part works as long as the fopen works)
Another Note: I am writing this to pass data to Flex 2.
Any help would be much greatly appreciated
