can anybody let me know how to design webpages using flash?? i mean not the animation but may text boxes and form elements will be in flash and how will they talk to server??... IS it possible?? RANDALL ANY IDEA???
I believe Flash 5+ has form elements. They would behave the same way as typical forms and form elements in a web page, they would be sent to the server via a HTTP GET or POST request. Dave.

If you have Flash already, the online help has a lot of info, as well as the books delivered with Flash. If not, you can download a free, fully functional trial version that's good for 30 days from www.macromedia.com Text boxes for user input are supported, as are lots of other interactive features. Tutorials are included. Download it and play with it Pauline

Within Flash 5, there are very handy tutorials, etc., to get you started. Also just a general search on the web will yield many sites where there are additional tutorials, etc., that will get you going very quickly.
