I need help with my Radio buttons and a Combobox in my Form!


I have made a feedback form in Flash MX with PHP. Some parts are working flawlessly. The ‘input text’ boxes are sending the info to my email address just fine but the radio buttons and combobox are not sending anything at all. The reason the ‘input text’ boxes are working is because I can give them variable names. I have no idea how to set up the combo-boxes or radio buttons. Can someone please help me ?

Here is a zip file with .fla and .php documents.

See this file… I tried to implement FMX style coding as much as I can… Good luck… :slight_smile:

Thanks for the help CyanBlue

But its not even sending the info to my email now. To be honest I don’t know the first thing about coding and what you’ve done looks very advanced. I followed a tutorial on how to make the flash form but it didn’t tell me how to set up the radio buttons and combo-boxes and why I trying to find out. I think I’m a bit beyond myself trying to do this form. There must easier ways to a simple form with drop down menu’s and two radio buttons ?



Find this line…

formLVs.send("http://localhost/Form/form.php?uniqueID=" + getTimer(), formLVs, "POST");

and change it to be…

formLVs.send("http://www.yourdomain.com/yourdirectory/form.php?uniqueID=" + getTimer(), formLVs, "POST");

I think that’s what it is…

For the tutorial… I don’t know where you can look for except the ActionScript, flashKit, Kirupa, UltraShock… But the purpose of the tutorial is to give you an idea on how to do thing so that you can use the knowledge you have learned with the tutorial and adapt it for your own use… So, I guess I’ll just have to tell you to go over whatever you can get a hold of, such as Flash movies that you can find from those forums, and try to make it yours… =)

Thanks for all your help I finally completed my form !


Glad you got it working…

I just want you to know that I didn’t do that file just to let your project done… I did that to help you understand what’s in there… Know what I mean, right??? =)

Yeah I did learn a little bit. Your actionscript was very advanced but I did learn bits from it :slight_smile:

Thanks again
