im looking to build a course scheduling system that allows a
lecturer or teacher to send emails to multiple users simply by
dragging or selecting a select number of users from a data grid and
dropping them to another grid.
the message could be to inform students of i.e. change of
lesson time or any new information the lecturer might wish to send.
can anyone pour some insight or at least some direction as to
whether this is possible to do in flex and how i can approach this.
The way to do this is to send a message to the server side of
the app, and have the server side send out the email. E.g. create
an <mx:HTTPService> with an <mx:request> tag inside it
to define parameters such as To, Subject, and Body; then write some
server-side code and send the message, e.g. with PHP's mail()
