    Screenshot of stage attached to email via PHP

    HI everyone,
    I have a flash game which allows the user to drag and drop items into position on a stage and rotate them with the arrow keys.

    When the user has decided on the layout I would like for the submit button to send to my email.php:

    1. Name and contact details (Which I can do via text input fields)

    2. A screenshot of their layout as an attachment in the email (This I cant do!!)

    Any help with number 2 would be fantastic!!

    regards
    Phil

    Hi,

    in the old days (AS1/AS2) I developped something like that:
    there were two fla files, one with all interactivity (useres can arrange the stage) and one stripped to just the assets, and a small script added.
    When the visitor was done, the movie would just send positions of objects to the server, and the server would enhance a copy of the second swf by adding the data as an actionscript block.
    The recipient would get a swf attached to the mail

    Unfortunately there is no AS3 version of that concept

    hi,

    Doing this in AS3 is very simple.
    Just use the BitmapData Class to grab the image.
    Use JPGEncoder (AS3 CoreLib) to get ByteArray.
    Send the ByteArray to a script such as this.
    Save the image.
    Use a library like swift mailer to easily send an email with an attachment.
