has anyone ever created a subscribe form in flash. campaign monitor generates the code for putting a subscribe form on a website in various flavors of html, but i need to incorporate a signup form within a flash page, and i can't seem to figure out how to implement the posting of the form in flash. i know how to create the components in flash, i just can't figure out how to make it post to the campaign monitor, as i have never done a form in flash before.
any help would be appreciated.
Eric,you're in luck! The best way to integrate your subscribe form with flash is to use our API. We've got a free flash sample you can download and modify to suit your own needs, which you can grab here. You can also find plenty more about how the API works here.
This is exactly what I am looking for, a template to create a subscribe form in Flash,
But the link doesn't work.
Is there any updated link? Or any other info anyone has on creating a sub form in Flash?
Hey Elliot, sorry for the broken link. You can grab the latest version of the Flash API kits here:
Is this created in CS4? I was unable to open the .FLA file in CS3...
Any chance you could post a CS3 version?
Has anyone been able to get this to work without any optional fields? I would really appreciate your help!
I couldn't open the AS2 FLA either in CS3 or CS4. I can't get the AS3 version to work at all. I'm very very disappointed indeed. Has totally scupper my plans to use this in any of my Flash sites now. Any help Dave? Please?
Unfortunately at Campaign Monitor we're not Flash developers at all, so the samples provided are done by customers. Any experienced Flash scripting developer should be able to connect to the API though, using our documentation at http://www.campaignmonitor.com/api
If any helpful developer wants to update the sample code to work with the latest versions of action script, we'd be happy to post it on the site for others.
You guys are really missing the boat on this one, the example files definitely don't work. I realize that you're not flash people over there, but I'm sure you make enough money off of your product to hire a good flash developer for a few days to get some decent examples/documentation up... We expect the best from CM, we really love your system and use it on dozens of HTML sites, which is why we're double let down by the flash example not working and having no documentation of any kind...
yeah totally agree, wouldnt take much to provide this...
have just spent the last few hours trying to do this...
theres links to http://www.mailbuild.com/blog/2007/01/flash_api_kit_create_flash_bas.html
i think this is what brent is referring to above...as it appears to work with the old mailbuild and therefore the download link is broken?
remember we are designers for the most part so this
isnt really as helpful as you guys nomrally are!
what would help us is a fla file of a working form that drops the subscribers details in a list...where we can replace the IDs for the relevant list etc
Would only help you as well as more people could easily include such a form in flash files/projects
