    I am curious to know if I can add a JotForm I built into a Flash file

    Asked by woodruffj14 on September 16, 2015 at 06:07 PM

    I am using Adobe Flash CS6, AS2.  I liked into this trying to use the javascript file provided when I click "embed" on my form, but was unable to get that to work.

    If anyone is familiar with Flash, or have attempted this, I would appreciate it!

    I am trying to do this for a web advertisement.

    Thanks

    Hi,

     

    Are you trying to embed your form using Adobe Flash? I think this article might help you. You can follow the instructions provided in this article: Add a Form to Flash.

     

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

    Regards.

    Hi Chriistian,

    This appears to be for if a website was built in flash, but since I don't have any sort of website to embed it to, Im not sure if this solution works.  I would need the JotForm to eventually be able to work on a .swf (the file that is created when you export a .Fla (FLASH) file).  It won't be HTML.

    Is this still possible?  I could be wrong.

    Thanks for your response.

    You are right about it requiring the website since the guide shows you how to make a call to your jotform outside of your flash file.

    Now, that is about as much as it is possible to accomplish.

    There are some ways of faking the form being in your swf, but it can not.

    If it was some simple HTML page, that could be loaded into flash and styled, but since the form requires HTML, CSS and JavaScript, that is not possible to do in Flash, unless you are to take and recreate everything within the Flash, using HTML object, CSS imports and ActionScript.

    The closest to what you are asking is to share the HTML file which will load the swf file, through which you will open the form on that same html file - practically the same setup as my colleague has mentioned above.

    Thanks Ben,

    I think what I'm going to do for a solution is just screenshot the JotForm, and then make a transparent clickTAG button in flash over the screenshot that will open the actual JotForm URL.

     

    That should work for what I need.

     

    I appreciate both responses to my question!

    You are welcome. I would just like to mention that in that case, the default browser on the users system is the one that would be called to open the form - if you make that clickTag open the direct URL, although, yes you could make the screenshot even show the entire form and that they can scroll the image up and down - if you do it like that.

    If you happen to have any further questions do let us know and we would be happy to assist :)
