    Contact Form




      I'm making a web page and I wanna include a contact form in it so I'm making it in FLASH CS4

      Using Action Sript 3.0.

      I watched some video tutorials in YouTube in how to make the Code and PHP form.

      But when I finished the form on flash I published it in SWF and

      when I click the submit button this error shows on the OUTPUT tab:



           Error: Error #2101: The String passed to URLVariables.decode() must be a URL-encoded query string containing name/value pairs.

           at Error$/throwError()

           at flash.net::URLVariables/decode()

           at flash.net::URLVariables()

           at flash.net::URLLoader/onComplete()




      I don't know if there is an error on my code, because I upleaded it into the web to try it and I didn't recive anything

      I'm Asking for name=nombre    phone#= telefono  email=correo  and the message=mensaje

      so i'm using 4 input fields


      and this is the code I'm using:  (The php file is attached)




      // hiding some boxes used for error handling

      en.visible = false;

      ec.visible = false;

      em.visible = false;




      // build variable name for the URL Variables loader

      var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables;



      // Build the varSend variable

      var varSend:URLRequest = new URLRequest("form_postal.php");

      varSend.method = URLRequestMethod.POST;

      varSend.data = variables;


      // Build the varLoader variable

      var varLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader;

      varLoader.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.VARIABLES;

      varLoader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, completeHandler);


      // handler for the PHP script completion and return of status

      function completeHandler(event:Event):void {

           // remove processing clip

           nombre_txt.text = "";

           telefono_txt.text = "";

           correo_txt.text = "";

           mensaje_txt.text = "";



           // Load the response from php here

           status_txt.text = event.target.data.return_msg;


      // Add event listener for submit button click

      submit_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, ValidateAndSend);

      // function ValidateAndSend

      function ValidateAndSend (event:MouseEvent):void {



           // validate fields

           if(!nombre_txt.length) {

           en.visible = true;

           } else if (!correo_txt.length) {

           ec.visible = true;

           } else if (!mensaje_txt.length) {

           em.visible = true;

           } else {


                // ready the variables in our form for sending

                variables.Nombre = nombre_txt.text;

                variables.Correo = correo_txt.text;

                variables.Mensaje = mensaje_txt.text;

                variables.Telefono = telefono_txt.text;



                // Send the data to PHP now




           } // close else condition for error handling

            Hi thanks but


            I changed :


                 varLoader.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.VARIABLES;


                 varLoader.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.TEXT;


            but now it prompts me with another error:


                 ReferenceError: Error #1069: Property return_msg not found on String and there is no default value.

                 at POSTAL_fla::Postal_1/completeHandler()

                 at flash.events::EventDispatcher/dispatchEventFunction()

                 at flash.events::EventDispatcher/dispatchEvent()

                 at flash.net::URLLoader/onComplete()


            and thats when the php file is in the same folder as the swf, because if I take the php file away it gives me this error:


                 Error #2044: Unhandled ioError:. text=Error #2032: Stream Error. URL:      file:///Macintosh%20HD/Users/Admin/Documents/NewFolder/Flash/Web/form_postal.php

                 at POSTAL_fla::Postal_1/frame1()



            And still i tried it on the server and I do not get any mail
