    flash and submitting text to database

    macron
      hi all,

      i've been asked to make a flash site with a component on it that uses a form to submit text to a database on the server. knowing nothing about forms or back end stuff, i'm wondering where to start. is this something that will require SQL? and do i use actionscript to submit the text to the db? i'm also wondering about how much time it might take to get a working knowledge of this sort of thing.

      any suggestions?

      cheers,

          In most cases... yes.

          No, you use AS to send the data to a CF, PHP, ASP, Java, .Net or any other server side scripting language you want to use.

          It's not that hard and if you search for tutorials you will find a number of them. But... if you really know nothing about backend stuff maybe someone can do this for you.
