Flash Template \ Utilities \ Forms
ActionScript Version: AS2; Documentation: Well Documented; Flash Files Included: PHP Files; Opens With: Flash 8 (8+); Published Size: 103kb.
This is the perfect flash contact form for a Web Designer or Graphic Designer’s website. It can be used as a quote form or simply a means for contact. It has a set of radio buttons, two drop down menus (combo box components), and 4 checkboxes. It uses a simple email validation to make sure that email addresses entered are well-formed. Fully customizable from the backgrounds, to the labels next to the radio buttons, check boxes, and options inside the drop-down menu. It uses one flash file and a single php file to perform all of these functions. The person who inputs the information also receives a custom automatic response, letting them know that their message has been received. The email is currently just text, but you have the option to insert HTML tags, images, and background colors to make the email look great.
Note: This File has not been tested for compatibility with versions more recent than Flash 8.

Q: Is this form easy to customize?
A: It depends on how extensive you want to change it. You don’t have to be an actionscript guru to use it in an existing project, you will need to have Flash 8 or higher, and a program that allows you to edit PHP so you can place your email address in the PHP file.
Q: Can I add additional radio buttons? checkboxes? comboBoxes?
A: Yes, instructions are included in the Help file.
Q: How can I customize the automatic response message?
A: Step-by-step instructions are included in the Help file.
Q: Can I change the appearance of the radio buttons, checkboxes, and combobox?
The form is not working
What does “not working” mean? Is there an error message? Do you not receive the email? Is it barfing all over your computer screen? Define what exactly “not working” means, and then try to locate some solutions below?
When I click the “submit” button, the status message just says “sending…”
Check that the PHP file and the swf are in the same folder/directory on your server, and that you have not renamed the PHP file. Also, check that you have not deleted the ending quotation mark [“] and semi colon[;] after the email address you added in the PHP file.
It says my message was sent successfully, but I didn’t receive an email
Check that you’ve spelled your email address correctly in the PHP file. Check your spam folder (if you’ve edited the body of the email).
Error message says “Message could not be sent at this time”.
Check that your server supports PHP and that you haven’t made any syntax errors in the PHP file.
I dragged and dropped the form into an existing flash template and the components are not functioning properly
In your flash template’s library, import the components being used in the form (radiobutton, combobox, checkbox).
“I dragged and dropped the form into an existing flash template and the components are not functioning properly”
“The comboBox is not working”
In your flash template’s library, import the components being used in the form (radiobutton, combobox, checkbox). If that does not work, try adding this snippet to the contact form movie itself.
this._lockroot = true;
Q: Foreign character support?
A: Open up the main .fla and select the dynamic text fields on the stage where you’d like for the form to accept foreign characters. Open the properties panel. Locate and click the button labeled “Embed” to open the Character Embedding module. You can either select a set of characters to embed in to each from the list or manually type in the characters that you’d like the form to accept into the field below the sentence that says “Include these characters:” When you’ve finished making either your selection or typing your characters in, click the
OK button. Open up the php file and add this to the mail headers
section: $mail_headers .= “Content-type: text/html; charset=UTF-8”;a
