Can I Create Forms In Flash?

Hi everyone, i am a bit new to the web design world. I just completed a book on how to USe Macromedia Flash. However there was no mention on how to create forms there.

I am planning to create a flash based webpage that has a contact form or registration page, that maybe submits to my email address.

Can anyone help out please?

@regaltopax, that will definitely expose ur email to spammers.

embedding ur email in webpages is not good including flash.

and since you will be sending the stuff by posting to a mail.php page, why not use flash's inbuilt post. I will take you 2 mins to set up.

read my earlier post to get what i mean.

@ade9ja, i think thats not true.

security reason, yes virus and other niternet worm do easily or find it easy to attach theirselves to flash files than other files like html.

don't get me wrong you can but seek better antivirus and antispyware up to date.
