  • 2. Inspectable type="Array"
    Are there someone who's familiar with the Inspectable meta-tag? I'm having trouble using the Inspectable meta-tag with the type set to Array. During design time the parameters are set correctly, but by runtime the parameters aren't read at all. See the folowing example: private var __dataLabels : Array; [Inspectable (name="Data labels", type="Array", defaultvalue="label1,label2")] [ArrayProps(elementType="String")] public function set labels (aLabels : Array) : Void { __dataLabels = aLabels; } Changing the type to String - just to check - aLabels has the value: label1 Am I doing something wrong or is it just one of the "funny" things (a bug??) One deal with, when writing components i Flash? Hope someone is able to help me. Peter

I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge of writing files out of flash and 
then reading them back in via actionscript or javascript with in flash. If 
anyone knows could you please help. I found this as a starting point but any 
other help would be appreciated. 

 on (release) {
 if (_root.cookieName.length>=1 && _root.cookieValue.length>=1) {
script:setCookie('"+_root.cookieName+"','"+_root.cookieValue+"')", "");
 //_root.done = "[DONE]";

Have you tried searching for information about shared objects??

These are flash's own cookies (kind of) and they work in a very similar way to your average cookie.

ok...did some reading and figured out how to write a .sol file from flash using 
SharedObjects. Works really well except I am not sure how to define the path 
where the .sol will be written to.

 //////////////////code used on top level frame of the movie//////////////////
 user = SharedObject.getLocal("user_profile");
 heater =;
 ////////////////////////////////////code used on a 
 on (release) { = heater;

 I have two files and want both files to read and write from the same .sol 
file. Please help.

 thanks d

4.write to a file read from a file

For some reason this subject eludes my understanding and honestly, I feel, it 
also eludes a good tutorial.  All I want to do is store a variable to a text 
file by clicking a button and then click another button to show the variable.  
I would want two text boxes, an input and a dynamic.  The user enters something 
in the input and clicks a button called "store" and what the user inputed is 
written to a text file.  When the user clicks 'load', what's stored in the text 
file shows up in the dynamic text box.  Can someone please explain this to me 
very specifically, ideally with an example .fla?  Thanks a ton.
