the easiest way to do this is to generate an email using the client's default email program (using getURL). but that requires the user to have a default email program (and not all do) and it requires them to ok the submission of the email.
the better way to do it is to use the flash loadvars class to call a php (or some other server-side script) that sends an email.
Sorry if I wasn't clear. I want a person to select an image (by clicking on it), select (or check off) a confirm button and then I want the image name mailed to me automatically when the confirm button is pressed.
Perhaps the answer is that it can not be done in flash. The previous answer was a bit above me.
Oh By the way KGLAD, your answer may be the right one, I'll look into it deeper as my ability allows, but really? over 28,000 posts in 8 years?? WOW. That's 10 a day. Have you called Guiness?
actually, that number is over 40,000 but i lost a little over 10,000 posts when this latest forum version was installed.
but you can send the image name with either method. the way you would do that is different for each method. which way do you want to use?
Over 40K?, OK forget Guiness book of records, call Guiness the Beer company.
Newbies are sometimes not sure what they want to do. Thanks for your patience. Actually, I am trying to get information from a user's graphical selections from a customer that will order certain pictures (framed Prints). If they select an image and then hit a confirm button, that info needs to get to me via email or somesort of data upload to my server (where the server is my ftp hosting site). I am assuming the potential customer does not have an email client. I am teaching myself Flash through trial and error and some utube tutorials and flash for dummies. I thought about getting a decompile program to see how some people do it, but that costs money.
Go ahead and laugh. 40,001
to use server-side script to send that email you'll use loadvars in flash to call that script. does your server support php or asp?
