Creating the Actionscript

  1. Open the actions tab for the send button (modify >Instance >actions)
  2. Create the following code:
    On (Release)
        If (txtName ne "" and txtCompany ne "" and txtPosition ne "" and txtFrom ne "" and txtmessage ne "")
            Load Variables ("cdontsMail.asp", 0, vars=POST) 
            Go to and Play ("valid")
            Go to and Play ("invalid")
        End If
    End On 
    NB: Look at the .fla file for a better idea of how this is done.

What we've done:
We have created an action script which checks whether all variables (text fields) have a value. If they do (If txtName ne (does not equal) "" (nothing)) the actionscript tells Flash to send their values to a page called cdontsMail.asp and play the valid 'screen'. If any variable does not have a value (ie: the text field is empty) the actionscript simply sais go and play the invalid 'screen'

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
