    Question Sending email within Flash MX


    Iíd like to be able to have the user click on text or a button within my Flash site that would open the userís default email program.
    How can I do this?

    If this canít be done, than how can it be done in much the same way that HTML does using <form action=Ēmailto:emailAddress@somewhere.comĒ method=ĒpostĒ>?
    Iíd rather not have to use components but if this is the only way then I will.

    Iím using Flash MX to design my site.

    Thank you

    Just make your text field able to hold html, by clicking the button that looks like to angled brackets in the property inspector, then put your mailto:whoever@wherever.net in the url parameter of the property inspector.
