How to create a form by using Flash

I have created a form which contains some textfield for Name, Email and Message. And a send button, so what action should I add in the button in order to send the information to myself. I don't want to use CGI for it. Please help. Thanks !

You can't send form results in Flash to anywhere without using CGI.

In order to even transmit these variable names you have to use "send using POST" in the Get URL command.

I'm sorry, man. CGI is the only way to use Flash forms.

I can write a CGI script for you if you like.

Thanks for reply. Yes, please post a cgi example to me. So i can know how it's look like. Also, am I just use the GET URL action to get to the cgi, and let the cgi to send me email?? If so, please post me the sample CGI. Thanks !!
Exactly. Just post to the cgi script and make sure to use "Send using POST" in the movie.

Check out Matt Wright's Form Mail script. It's free to use. Read the readme before setting it up, it's the best way to go!

Hope this helps
