  • AutoPlay Media studio4.0 "mailto:" ???

    Hello and thanx for reading.

    Used version 3 for a long time and it was easy to assign an image (picture) as a "mailto:" link, when the mouse cursor was clicked. It's been a long long time since I've used it (version 3) but I think it was an option on a drop down menu. I'm helping out a friend and he is using AutoPlay Media studio4.0. Lots of very nice improvements to version 4 but I can not for the life of me find out to do the "mailto:" link.
    Basically I have a small picture of an email envelope. It changes color just slightly with mouse over and I want to have it open the user's default email application when clicked and use the 'mailto:' command to automatically enter the email address.
    Like any new version, it's a case of getting used to the new features and where things have been moved to.

    Keep up the good work.

              my thanks as well - just what I've been scratching my head over recently. Works great with the subject and body parameters as well but.

              Just one question. Is it possible to drop the cursor at the end of the body text? Focus stays in the subject field.

                Not any easy way, the thing about mailto is that it's a monkey. Depending on which email client your end user is using, mailto acts very differently in may scenarios and it's not a very customizable method of doing things. It's basically just a quick way to get an email open with your address in it, anything more detailed is usually done using a form of some sort...

                  ...yeh well I'm more than happy with this evenings work. As a bonus I've realised that I can do e.g. file.open http://www.indigorose.com - up to now I've been creating html pages and then incorporating them into my build to facilitate web links - dohhhh..

                    Cool! Yes I use web objects a lot personally being a PHP guy, amazing what you can do with them... It's like a reversal of the "EXPORT TO WEB" feature, i.e. "IMPORT FROM WEB".
