HELLO,

I have a flash 5 movie with a contact mc.
when people want to contact the company, I want an html form pop up on the screen. They fill in the form and hit the send button. After hitting the send button, I want to turn back to the same place I was in the flash movie. So actually I want the html to close automatically after sending the information. Which way is the best to start off??

If you run your html form in a popup window from flash you can then have the user submit their info and use window.close (javascript) to close the popup. The close opperation will have to be on a seperate html link within the popup window, or you could make your form redirect to an html page with the close command on it.
You should use a popup because the popup wont ask for confirmation before closing but a normal window will.

So checkout the popup tutorial here:

Once you have your popup working I'll help you with the close command...

Cheers
