Hi Experts,
I have the following html  which is a form that allows the user to fill in some fields and attach files.
Is it possible to collect all the information and put them into a text file and send the text file together with any attached files to an email address?

Thanks

Hi,
JavaScript is not allowed to write anything to the hard drive. There are no read/write methods for the local hard drive, try to collect at server and store it in file there if you want to do so

Regards,
Amal

You've posted in ASP.NET zone. Are you using ASP.NET? If you are, change the inputs for asp:textboxes and so on. From there, you can create a text file and a mailmessage object and send that.

Use streamwriter. All you'll have to do is create it and then write to it

Dim sw As New StreamWriter("C:\test.txt")
sw.WriteLine(tb.Text)
sw.Close
