Hello,

I am looking to create an interactive birthday invitation, for example a single page graphic with 2 interactive fields. Like for one, the name of the attendees, the email address and a 2 tick box options (that they can click to check). When they have filled in the info they click a button and it sends this information to my email address.

What would be the best way to do this? I don’t mind watching a few tutorials if I need to use flash or something?

Thanks

I think this can be easily achieved with PHP if your looking to do it through a website.

I don't think the <tr> and <table> tags etc is a good idea though :p

you can change input type to check boxes, full list here

Again I'm going to recommend http://www.wufoo.com/

Free version will let you do what you want to do but the paid for version will even let you define "paths" so that some options only appear based on previous choices in the form.

I.e. only show the choice for "need parking" if they choose that they're able to attend.

php mail function is what you need, but if the form is open to the public, you will need to escape the user supplied strings, which is a bit harder to do without a mysql connection.

Personally I think I would generate a mysql table, escape the responses and do a bind mysqli insert. Then just write a script to return a comma delimited file that you can open straight up in excel.
