    PHP Form

    I am trying to be slick and write this out, but it doesnt seem to want to work.......can some one take a look and see if there is something I missed....

    code:

    //--Actionscript
    mailform = "form.php";
    confirm = "please wait for confirmation ..."
    action = "send";

    function validate (address) {
    if (address.length>=7) {
    if (address.indexOf("@")>0) {
    if ((address.indexOf("@")+2)<address.lastIndexOf(".") ) {
    if (address.lastIndexOf(".")<(address.length-2)) {
    return (true);
    }
    }
    }
    }
    return (false);
    }

    function formcheck () {
    if ((((email == null)) || (email.length<1)) || (email == "ERROR! Address not valid")) {
    email = "ERROR! Address not valid";
    action = "";
    }
    if (!validate(email)) {
    email = "ERROR! Address not valid";
    action = "";
    }
    if (name == null) {
    name = "ERROR! Name required";
    action = "";
    }
    if (tml == null) {
    tml = "ERROR! Name required";
    action = "";
    }
    if ((validate(email)) && (email != "ERROR!") && (message != "")&& (subject != "")&& (name != "") && (tml != "")) {
    trace("GOOD")
    action = "send";
    loadVariablesNum (mailform, 0, "POST");
    play();
    }
    }





    ver basic PHP for right now
    PHP Code:
    <?
     
       $to 
    "mike@newrealitydesigns.com";
       
    $msg "$name\n\n";
       
    $msg .= "$tml\n\n";
       
    $msg ..= "$message\n\n";

      
    mail($to$subject$msg"From: My web site\nReply-To: $email\n");

    ?>

    Typo? Syntax, what is the deal !

    Even more so, is there a way to do this same task in 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?

    hello psycho,

    please dont eat my family.

    here is some breathtaking php code.
    Code:
    <?php
    $t= $_POST['t'];
    $s= $_POST['s'];
    $m= $_POST['m'];
    mail($t,$s,$m);
    ?>
    followed by some sassy actionscript
    code:

    for (var i=1;i<=3;i++) {
    this.createTextField("tf"+i,i,0,i*22,200,20);
    this["tf"+i].type="input";
    }
    this.onMouseDown=function() {
    for (var i = 1; i<=3; i++) {
    _level0["tf"+i].text.length>0?trace(_level0["tf"+i].text):trace("BEEP");
    }
    l= new LoadVars();
    l.t=_level0.tf1.text;
    l.s=_level0.tf2.text;
    l.m=_level0.tf3.text;
    l.sendAndLoad("whateveryounamedthefileupthere.php" , l, "POST");
    }



    edit: actually performing the action might be helpful

    here's a vbscript too - im told asp is basically vbscript inside <% tags... i dunno tho, never used it. this works client side anyways (save as whatever.vbs and double click) so i imagine you can probably wrap it in a sub and have at it
    Code:
    Dim t,s,f
    t=  InputBox("to") 
    f=  InputBox("from") 
    s=  InputBox("subj") 
    Set objEmail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    objEmail.From = f
    objEmail.To = t
    objEmail.Subject = s
    objEmail.Send

    Sorry! But I know nothing of server side scripting, and contrary to others, I'm not afraid to admit it! I usually don't post just to show off my scripting abilities, and regarding SSS, I simply have none!

    I can only refer you to this thread, where one of the links could possibly shed some light!

    nrd: how does that not answer your questions? you use $_POST['var'] to recieve variables send via LoadVars. the dollar sign inside the string is extraneous, but doesn't hurt anything.

    sendandload does everything send does and everything load does, so just use it exclusively. the validation was all superfluous as well.

    Well, I really just wanted to know what was up with the code I had up.....sounds kinda closed minded but i raelly wanted to know whati did wrong, not just copy and paste some one elses......i figgered it out.....the variable for mailform was misspelled. WOOT for me

    As for the ASP part, i have been killing my self trying to get ASP mail thing to work, but cant...I am a total ASP idiot !

    and it doesnt seem like people who do know about it want to help a newbie out, and everyone else knows just enough to post and cunfuse me. I meant no ill will towards your reply, I always appreciate it when people try to hel[pm, I just need some asp help quick style.



    <%
    response.write(request.form("symptom"))
    response.write(" " & request.form("part"))
    %>

    which return My head hurts if I knew how to MAKE THE SCRIPT WORK !!!!!!!!

    see im guess i thought the fact that you bumped your own post 3 times meant you needed a solution quickly, not an indepth explanation - as i've mentioned i don't know a thing about asp, but if you want to pursue it with php i'd be glad to help. if you need to do it in asp, sorry but im useless.

    did you try encasing the vbs in <% and %> like i suggested? then i believe you can either save it as a processor (save it as a separate file with a .asp extension and the appropriate chmod, and have your form action point to that file) or use it as a defined function within your page, in a fashion similiar to a javascript function. this is all guesswork, but i'm 90% sure that mail form will work with the tags in place
    Code:
    <%
    Dim t,s,f
    Set objEmail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    objEmail.From = f
    objEmail.To = t
    objEmail.Subject = s
    objEmail.Send
    %>
    im also guessing asp works the same as most other scripts for recieving variables; set the id and names of your form elements to reflect the variables... just some suggestions. good luck.

    Yeah I had thought that too...

    Im all good to go with PHP...

    but this server here at work will not allow PHP....

    So I need to get it to work in ASP...




    What is this about CHMOD?

    Does that need to be changed for the asp to work?

    yes. anything you're doing server side needs chmodd'ed, even image files in the rare instance you might rewrite them...

    its rwe - read write execute - scripts need to be set to execute permissions, files being written to /overwritten /saved need the write attributes set

    you can do this through dos, ie, cute, wise, or xp's ftp. easiest is ie - just browse to ftp://username:password@domain.com with folder view enabled, r-click and check the appropriate boxes

    Ok so what if it is client side?

    The flash file, and the asp are on the same network as the viewrs coumputed, but it is accessed through the web. It like an intranet.....is that the problem?

    How can I change the chmod on a file that is not ftped
