Hey mkbanister, thanks for the glowing comments!
Just a quick note to others... here's some background information that I already provided to mkbanister:
There is no way that flash can (by itself) send you an email. It is possible to use the getURL command with a mailto: link to launch an email client send message window - there are others who have asked how to do this on the flash forum and I've answered it a couple of times so this should be available via search, if not ask away on the forum again and I (or someone else) will answer for sure -but that approach is a) unreliable because for someone who uses gmail - for example - and not Outlook express or whatever it won't work and b) people may not want to send you the email.
The best way is probably to use a scripting language on your web server (PHP, ASP, CFM etc) and a database. So using this approach, flash would at the end do a LoadVars.sendAndLoad to tell the server what was selected and the server script would either send you an email or save it in a database. But if you're not familiar with that its going to be a reasonable learning curve to do it - not intended to be discouraging - just to let you know.
I'm still learning that side of things. I can make flash talk to PHP but I'm not so familiar with making PHP talk to the database yet.
Yikes........I may have to rethink this whole thing............the site is no good if we cant capture the result so the owner of the site can look at it.
Is there a way to write a script or something that will screen print and send????
Help PLEASE. I dont want to have to recreate the whole thing in a different format.
GWD.....I know your busy so I am hoping someone else will find this a fun challenge. Thanks again for all the help on getting this off the ground.
Anyone out there that can take on this challenge?????????????
