    PHP to ASP

    is there a way to use ASP to accomplish the same task that PHP does with flash for the contact form.

    I want to use

    loadVariablesNum

    to post variables to asp?
    or something like it.

    I have the site I am working on on the same network as the people who see it, but I need to get it to send a form through a contact area. Any ideas?

    I haven't tried it, but I thought PHP could run on an ASP server.


    Anyone correct me if I am wrong.....please.

    Hi,

    there have been a couple of ASP mail scripts in the past - just try the search function.
    One thing you will notice: where php simply uses mail() to send mail, there are a few different mailers in asp world which require different scripting

    One last thing......

    If the page with the ASPis on the same network that the viewer is on, will PHP or ASP work mail work?


    It is a intranet site, so you go through a webbrowser to get there, but it is still on the same network the CPU is.

    Will that wouk? WIth PHP or ASP?

    Or does it neeed to be on an actual server?

    variables: http://www.w3schools.com/asp/asp_variables.asp

    forms: http://www.w3schools.com/asp/asp_inputforms.asp

    mail: http://www.w3schools.com/asp/asp_send_email.asp

    should be about all you need, i learned basic asp today in about 10 minutes, if you know php it's really only a matter of changing syntax for the most part.

    you can send email with asp and flash..

    hehehe.. i am no actionscript writer.. but i think.. i just think, it may be this geturl funciton.. where you can put the url or address of a page in..
    so, you basically ask for the mailing script on asp, and add the variables on the flash swf as query strings..

    Ok .....

    I have

    [asp]

    <html>
    <body>

    <%
    Set myMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    myMail.Subject="Sending email with CDO"
    myMail.From="mymail@mydomain.com"
    myMail.To="someone@somedomain.com"
    myMail.TextBody="This is a message."
    myMail.Send
    %>

    </body>
    </html>

    [/asp]

    In an ASP file

    and I get an error when I go to the page.....

    how do I call the script. Does it just run?

    Do I need to do more than go to the asp file?

    well, you have to call the page from inside the flash file..

    hmm... i think you can use the "loadVariables" function...

    and after you've sent the email from asp... redirect back to the page or to whatever page..

    and also... do check if the server you are working with has CDONTS installed... otherwise, ul have to work with other asp mailing scripts out there..
