You can build the UI of the form using Catalyst, but you won't be able to actually make it send mail to you without doing a little bit of work in Flash Builder as well. In FB, you would need to write code to get the data from the form and send it to the PHP script on your server that would actually send the mail.
You might want to check out the new Services Explorer and some of the UI-generation features in Flash Builder as well. These features can streamline the process of building forms and connecting them to a database considerably.
Thank you very much for your answer.
The problem I have is that I'm brand new to website building and I don't
know anything about writing code.
I don't know html, java, php, or even flash. I bought CS4 suite to see if I
can use flash, but when I found out
the amount of code learning involved, the task became to great. I'm really
good in Photoshop and Illustrator,
but when it comes to writing code, I cannot even make a button work
properly. That's the reason why I am
so exited about Catalyst, because I was able to build a simple site, very
elegant, and easily in a very small
amount of time.
If I'm given step by step instructions, I can usually follow, or maybe an
already existing form to tweak.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Could you please expand on what you mean by "Services Explorer"?
I can create a PHP form, and the look of the form in Catalyst. I just don't know where to go from there, since
in Flash, I would need to write code for the form to communicate with the php form, and as I said before, I don't
a thing about writing code.
Thank you for your help.
Let me see if I can find you some docs or tutorials on using the data features in Flash Builder...
Thank you very much.
Our current tools aren't designed for non-coders to create full-blown applications that connect to a database. However, the new data features in Flash Builder make this easy enough that a non-coder can probably squeak by. Here are the docs:
You'll also need the Flash Builder 4 beta:
Let me know how it goes,
