    sending variables out of flash


    Hi,

    I have a simple form where users input their email address and they will hit the submit button and send it to a specified email address. I'm unclear as to the script I need to write to get the info out of flash and to the intended recipient. Thanks for the help!

    what server?


    ok two questions:


    1> what server do you use?
    Linux?

    2>can you use perl on your server?
    Then I've got a killer script for you

    if it's windows, can you use asp?

    you'll have to use a server side script if you want it to mail directly (and not open a mail application like mailto: does.) Check out this from flashkit. it details how to mail someone from flash using almost any server side script:

    Hi Teabag,

    Thanks for the reply...

    You said:

    2>can you use perl on your server?


    At the risk of sounding dumb, I don't know what server I'm using and I don't know if I can use perl. I've been working in the design end and am now faced with needing to do some developing work. Any suggestions about how to learn what I need?

    Hi Bret,

    Thanks for the reply, I'll check out the scripts and see what I can figure out.
