by clicking on the button :p

if you have the form with the method POST, have the action set to a php file with the following lines: <? print_r($_POST); ?>

that should display any information sent from the form

cheers,

i think (not sure) javascript is the answer! Javascript will b able 2 interact with ur flash and ur html page, then u process it using php!
