View Full Version : Email form tutorial not working

03-16-2007, 07:15 AM
Trying to send email form data,

but all I get in the email returned is

[Object] [Object]

I combined tutorials I found on Kirupa's to create a form and Email Form with PHP, got the form working, it sends through email, but comes back as indicated above. No one at Kirupa forums seems to be able to help.

Can anyone assist:confused:
Fla can be found at http://www.cjdeastbound.co.za/test/cjd.zip


Code for form
// The display function
function radioDisplay (component) {
radio = component.getValue() ;
trace ( radio ) ;
// We assign this function to the group gender
kindofkid.setChangeHandler ("radioDisplay") ;
buycar.setChangeHandler ("radioDisplay") ;

// populate the combobox
/*for (i=1;i<3;i++) {
gender.addItem (i) ;
// function to display the selection
function comboDisplay (component) {
combo = component.getSelectedItem().label ;
trace ( combo );
// We assign the function to the combobox
gender.setChangeHandler ("comboDisplay") ;


Code for submit
on (press) {
// send variables in form movieclip (the textfields)
// to email PHP page which will send the mail
this.form.loadVariables("email.php", "POST");

on (release) {
// send variables in form movieclip (the textfields)
// to email PHP page which will send the mail


Code for email.php

/************************************************** *\

// First, set up some variables to serve you in
// getting an email. This includes the email this is
// sent to (yours) and what the subject of this email
// should be. It's a good idea to choose your own
// subject instead of allowing the user to. This will
// help prevent spam filters from snatching this email
// out from under your nose when something unusual is put.

$sendTo = "[email protected]";
$subject = "CJD Emailer result";

// variables are sent to this PHP page through
// the POST method. $_POST is a global associative array
// of variables passed through this method. From that, we
// can get the values sent to this page from Flash and
// assign them to appropriate variables which can be used
// in the PHP mail() function.

// header information not including sendTo and Subject
// these all go in one variable. First, include From:
$headers = "From: CJD Website \r\n";
// next include a replyto
$headers .= "Reply-To:[email protected] \r\n";
// often email servers won't allow emails to be sent to
// domains other than their own. The return path here will
// often lift that restriction so, for instance, you could send
// email to a hotmail account. (hosting provider settings may vary)
// technically bounced email is supposed to go to the return-path email
$headers .= "Return-path:[email protected]";

// now we can add the content of the message to a body variable
$message = "Gender| " . $_POST["gender"] ." Race| ". $_POST["race"] . "Income| "
. $_POST["income"] . "Buycar| ". $_POST["buycar"] ."Kind of kid| ". $_POST["kindofkid"] ."\r\n";

// once the variables have been defined, they can be included
// in the mail function call which will send you an email
mail($sendTo, $subject, $message, $headers);
