    Hello fellow Flash Developers,

    Ok, I have created a flash web page with numerous input text boxes for users to enter their name, age, telephone number, etc.

    I have also assigned variable names to the input text boxes, eg. 'surname', 'forename', etc.

    I then created a submit button at the bottom of the page.

    How to I enable the button to collect all of the data from the input text boxes and then post the results to a text file or my e-mail account so that I can process the results?

    Do I need to use ColdFusion or can Flash handle this on its own?

    Once again many thanks, u guys are my lifeline...

    To write the data to a text file or send it via email you will need a server side script, my tutorial uses PHP:

    Many thanks Jesse, thanks for introducing me to another very helpful site for fellow Flash developers.

    But is there a way to collect data from input text boxes without using PHP?
