Question please help

Hello all!

I am trying to get a flash 5 form and asp to work in
a windows IIs environment. It is also running
Generator 2 Developer edition.
The flash form url is:

The html form url is:

I use the following action script on the send:

on (release) {
loadVariables ("http://www.inov8media.com/cgi-bin/FormMail.asp", "", "POST");
set (queryString, "?Name=" & Name & "Email=" & Email & "Comments=" & Comments & "SUBMIT=" & SUBMIT);
loadMovieNum ("pass.swt", 1, "GET");

The form in flash sends the info to the server
and then uses generator to send back the
info typed in by user. The form isn't pretty
but i have managed to get the info to and
from generator to display as a live reply
but it does not seem to access the asp
and therefore does not send the info as
an email.

Thankyou for the time, and any suggestions
would be great. I have tried looking at an ASP
tutorial but on one of the steps the link is broken.

Checkout my reply to your other thread:

Also note that if you want to pass a variable you have to set it BEFORE the loadVariables command...

maybe i'm not real familiar with generator but why are you using GET with form variables and why are you using a querystring with loadVariables? looks like you are doing alot of extra work. you can check out my tutorial on sending mail with flash and asp @ http://www.aspalliance.com/bellis

i just checked it with no problems. did you try downloading the code where it says "download this code"? not seeing the flash movie sounds like plugin issue. here's the download link: http://www.aspalliance.com/bellis/do...s/sendmail.zip
