I need to create a simple form in flash that a user will fill out and on submit will create a new database and fill it with the form data using php and mqsql. Does anyone have some sample code to this effect?

To be a bit more detailed I need my flash form to run the following kind of query:

CREATE TABLE  `new`.`users` (
  `test_uid` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `test_email` varchar(100) NOT NULL,
  `test_address` varchar(45) DEFAULT NULL,
  `test_message` varchar(45) DEFAULT NULL,
  `ipaddress` varchar(45) DEFAULT NULL,
  `test_pword` char(20) NOT NULL,
  `test_gname` char(80) NOT NULL,
  `test_lname` char(80) NOT NULL,
  `test_active` char(1) DEFAULT 'y',
  `test_lvl` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '1',
  `test_rdate` datetime DEFAULT NULL,
  `test_username` varchar(45) NOT NULL,
  `test_permission` varchar(45) NOT NULL DEFAULT '1',
  `test_contactno` varchar(45) DEFAULT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`pogu_uid`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB AUTO_INCREMENT=2 DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1

Open in new window


but I'm not sure how to structure the php.

For the flash I guess I'll be using something like this:

submit1.onPress = function(){
	myData.test_uid_txt = test_uid_txt.text
		myData.test_email_txt = test_email_txt.text
		myData.test_address_txt = test_address_txt.text
		myData.sendAndLoad("form.php", myData, "POST")
	}
}

Open in new window

 ... etc

Apologies. I am incorrect. I don't need to be creating the database but rather updating an existing database with:

insert into users(pogu_username,
pogu_pword, 
pogu_gname, 
pogu_lname, 
pogu_gender, 
pogu_rdate, 
pogu_contactno,
pogu_email,
pogu_dob, 
pogu_address, 
pogu_message,
ipaddress)

Above SQL statement you should not run from flash in normal practice. You should create database table using phpmyadmin, mysql gui or some other mysql client interface.

Then use php script to insert values to database which captures from the flash form.

Please find below sample code.
----------------------------------------------flash code ---------------------------------------------
var submitObject:LoadVars = new LoadVars();

submit1.onRelease = function():Void
{

     submitObject.myname = myname.text;
     submitObject.mycontact = mycontact.text;
     submitObject.myabout = myabout.text;
     submitObject.mymessage = mymessage.text;
     submitObject.send("http://WEBSITE.com/contactscript.php", "_self", "POST");
};
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


----------------------------------------------php code ------------------------------------------------
<?php
$conn = mysql_connect("local host", "username", "password");
mysql_select_db("blc", $conn);
$myname = $_POST['myname'];
$mycontact = $_POST['mycontact'];
$myabout = $_POST['myabout'];
$mymessage = $_POST['mymessage'];

$query="INSERT INTO contacts values ('', '$myname', '$mycontact', '$myabout', '$mymessage')";
$sql_run = mysql_query($query, $conn) or die(mysql_error());

?>

To add to my question: how do I validate the radio buttons in the flash form? I have 2 radio buttons with a group name of my_vars.gender The code I am trying is

if (my_vars.gender.selection == undefined) 
		{
			error_clip.gotoAndStop(44);
		}
