Problem with UI Component Button

I really like the look of the component button but I’m having trouble getting it to work properly. I am trying to swap the UI button for a custom button I made earlier. However, when I use the exact same actionscript for the old button on the NEW button, it doesnt work right…the data isnt passed properly as the value of the variables isnt displayed on the .asp page.

Here is the script that I use with the old button, and it works perfectly.

on (release) {
getURL(“”, “_blank”, “GET”);

Now when I use that same script with the component button, it loads the .asp page fine, but no data is passed. Bizarre! What am I missing with the UI Component Button?
