For those of us who dont have the pleasure of being able to use ASP or PHP on our web sites and are stuck using CGI, trying to achieve the same sorts of scripting that other lucky people are able to do seemed almost impossible! But its not! This tutorial will show you how to use a CGI script that not only sends the form information but returns information back to the Flash 4 movie instead of sending the user to an html page. This tutorial requires that you have a fair understanding of CGI script editing and that you can get a script running, and make relevant changes to suit your needs. You must obviously be able to create a Flash 4 form.
I will be using Matts Scripts Formmail as Im sure most of you have used it at some point in time. It requires that a few changes need to be made in the script. Basically it involves changing the script to send back plain text in the format that Flash can use to load variables, rather than returning back html code.
