I have created a flash game. When you are finished playing we would like to invite the user to share the site with a friend. We have designed an email that should be sent to the email address entered on the site. I searched the forums but could not find what I am looking for. I don't want to send a message from a Flash text Field or input form, I want to send a custom email to the the entered email address.
I am wondering what kind of Action Script or other programming(server side) languages are involved in doing something like this.
Flash is not capable of sending an email directly.
What you need to do is set up a server-side script to send that email, and take input from the flash for the address and anything else created by the Flash.
Depending on your server, the server-side scripting language will differ.
As for the Flash side of things, take a look at the LoadVars class, specifically the SendAndLoad function.
Thanks! I think that's exactly what I"m looking for.
