email forms - Macromedia Flash Data Integration

hi people. im pretty amateur on scripting..but my flash techniques are coming along ok. I'm creating a site and i want to integrate a feedback form into the swf file so the user does not hav to click a link to open a html page in a separate window to fill out a form - instead i want them to be able to enter their info straight from the flash site and send to to me via email. how do i start going about this? ive looked up several tutorials and they're ol a bit confusing. can anyone point me ...

    I also need to know how to do this... now, I know how using regular text fields
    with variables through php, but I REALLY need to know how to do this using all
    the premade form components. Please help asap so I can get this site up, thanks
    so much for your time. :)

    You use LoadVars or XML Actionscript classes. Then your server side
    scripting language handles the data.

    Basically you should look at the sendAndLoad methods for these two classes
    as the examples there are good:

    XML.sendAndLoad: [url]http://livedocs.macromedia.com/flash/8/main/00002879.html[/url]

    LoadVars.sendAndLoad:
    [url]http://livedocs.macromedia.com/flash/8/main/00002336.html[/url]

    Here is a basic PHP example using LoadVars and Flash components:

    and one with XML:
