You can pass additional variables to an upload script using either the POST or GET request method. To send additional POST variables to your upload script, you can use the following code:
This will add a dropshadow filter to a sprite (here symbolized as the variable oSprite):
For information on the parameters visit the actionscript pages on the dropshadow http://livedocs.adobe.com/flash/9.0/ActionScriptLangRefV3/flash/filters/DropShadowFilter.html
To move a DisplayObject to the top of the displaylist use the following (where parent is the container of the object being moved to the front). This makes it appear like it's in front of any other DisplayObjects.
You should preload sounds in as3 before playing them to prevent awkward pauses while the sound effect loads for the first time.

Place the first bit in your constructor function and the second in the event handler playing the sound
The stage object can only be accessed after an object has been added to the display list.
A quick example of the transitionmanager in a method:
