View Full Version : FLASH PHP - Email Results Problem

04-02-2007, 03:24 PM
I've got a swf that has a form inside a movie as follows

_parent.contentMain (an instance of formclip movie)

inside the contentMain I've a form witha submit button with the following code.

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

In the same directory I've got an email.php file with the code as follows. All I get is empty result strings without the actual form variables. Am I a using the loadVariables command wrong?

my server does support php most definately. Cause the email comes through just fine. Just no results in it.

// 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);
