    Thank you for contacting us.

    Could you please provide us with the link to your site? Also please let us know what desktop/web application you have used to create the site. Then, we will try to check if there is any easy way to integrate our forms to your site.

    We are looking forward to hearing from you.

    One option is you could open the form in a pop up window from your flash movie:

    The AS3 code would look a bit like this in that instance:

     

    function jsAlertWindow(event:MouseEvent):void {

    var jscommand:String = "window.open('http://form.jotform.com/form/12970134369','win','height=400,width=600,           toolbar=no,scrollbars=yes,location=0');"; 

    var url:URLRequest = new URLRequest("javascript:" + jscommand + " void(0);"); 

    navigateToURL(url, "_self"); 

    }

    alert_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, jsAlertWindow);

    The source .fla for that, if you want to have a look at it, can be downloaded here: http://pamppi.info/jotform-testing/AS3_JS_Alert_Window/AS3_JS_Alert_Window.fla
    There is probably a few other solutions you could use. 
    There is however no formal 'JotForm' method for embedding forms into Flash.

    As far as I know, JotForm can easily be embedded (not integrated) to a Flash site. Case in point, JotForms are easily embedded to sites made with Wix

    The only problem with this is that, since JotForms use JavaScript for its functions, it may interfere with the ActionScript in your flash-based site. Therefore, we advise our users to shy away from using full source code and instead use the iFrame method to embed forms on flash-based pages.

    Actually, there is no stopping you from using full source code, just make sure that you know your programming very well :)
