Email .swf file

Posted 20 November 2009 - 01:34 PM

Hi

Is there a way to have a text input box that you can input someones email and then the .swf file will be emailed to that address. What I mean is sending an email from within the .swf that sends the .swf to the address.

Thanks

No.
You would probably need a server - you would send the .swf file to it with the e-mail and then the server does the rest. Google PHP mail function.

This way it is also done with those eCards.

what about using the mailto: function like create a variable that is a string and then feed it into that function, that function would then use the users email to send it?

Could this not be done?

Not sure about this. mailto: is very limited - donīt know if it can attach a file...

This is probably everything that can be done with a mailto: http://articles.tech...11-5077343.html

And even if there would be a file attachment field in mailto: - it could have file limit, not all e-mail clients would support it.

And that is also a thing - not all clients would support it. Therefore using a server would be much much easier.
Or (if you want an eCard) you could just send a link to that file online with some GET parameters in address which would affect the swf file using, for example, FlashVars.
