    Submitting Form to a general web page

    Hurenjit
      I want to submit a simple flex form to a general web page such as PHP or JSP.

      I just want to convert this kind of source code in an HTML file into Flex file.

      <form action="a.php" ... >
      <input type=text ...>
      <input type=submit ...>
      </form>

      After it submitted, the file a.php should be opened.

      Can anyone give help? (I am using Adobe Flex 3)

      Thanks in advance.

          Hello,
          In flex you have various services through which you can submit your form. The mostly widely used is Http service.
          Seems you are new to flex. Here is a sample code of a simple form:

            Thanks for your help,
            but I tried this kind of examples, including this, several times.
            There was no response when I click on the button.

            If the URL was broken there was error,
            but if the URL was correct there was no reaction after the clicking.

            I also tried examples that opening new URL on a new browser window.
            There was no error message but It was not working.

            Again I also tried LinkButton, just to open a new URL:

            <mx:LinkButton label="LinkButton" click="openWindow()" id="linko" x="74" y="307"/>

            <mx:Script>
            <![CDATA[
            import flash.events.MouseEvent;
            import mx.controls.Alert;
            import flash.net.*;
            import flash.external.*;

            public function openWindow():void {
            var strFunction:String = "openWindow";
            var strURL:String = " http://www.cflex.net";
            var strCall:String = ExternalInterface.call(strFunction,strURL);
            }
            ...

            It also not working, so I failed opening a URL even with this simplest method.
            How can I solve this problem?

              Which do you want to do? Post data to a url or open a browser window?
