I would need to see your flash page but

_parent.name=""; will always = nothing you need to set it by using whatever was typed in the text field. aka _parent.name = _parent.name.text;

Hi thanx for getting back to me, i really have spent weeks on this form, what make it worse was i moved to a vurtual server at the same time so obviously my thoughts kept coming back to the problem being with the server.
Do you mean lke this

on (release) {
_parent.getURL("contact.php","_blank",
"GET");
_parent.name="name";
_parent.phone="phone";
_parent.email="email";
_parent.message="message";
}

the form is at www.concrete-crusher.co.uk
and is the contact form

once again thank you for your time
Best wishes Drek

on (release) {
_parent.getURL("contact.php","_blank",
"GET");
_parent.name="name";
_parent.phone="phone";
_parent.email="email";
_parent.message="message";
}

See when you do it like this


All your email is going to ever show is
name: name
phone: phone
email: email
message: message


You need to be pulling that information from your flash form which Only you would know the names of the form elements to pull the data from.

The problem i get when i do it like that is just the headings in the contact.php
and noughing from Flash. Do you mean the var in flash = the form
e.g. text input box = var:name?? i would be happy for you to have a copy of the .fla if i could send it to an email address

you may send it to me at iam_clint@hotmail.com

You need to be pulling the data into your form variables from the text boxes within the flash object
