Thread: Deleting Shared Objects from server

    Deleting Shared Objects from server

    I can update the object with the following code:

    _root.entries_so.data[pictureID].title = "Updated Text";

    If I do any of the following the shared object gets corrupt and I can no longer add to it.

    _root.entries_so.data[pictureID].title = null;

    or

    _root.entries_so.data[pictureID] = null;

    or

    delete _root.entries_so.data[pictureID];

    Do I need to do this server-side in the main.asc and how would I do that??

    I have been trying to go server-side as I can't seem to be able to do anything from the flash piece. I tried the following:

    in my flash:
    // removeNum = the ID of the object
    _root.main_nc.call("delEntry", null, removeNum);


    main.asc code:

    Client.prototype.delEntry = function(removeNum)
    {
    var slideId = this.entries_so.getProperty("removeNum")
    this.entries_so.setProperty("title"+slideId, null);
    }

    This seems to do nothing. So now I am looking at SharedObject.purge. I am not sure if it will work as it looks like it might remove everything up to the ID number you specify. But I will let you know soon.

    Hey -
    I haven't gotten a chance to mess around (haven't needed to delete anything yet!) but I found this article while poking around Actionscript.org.

    http://www.actionscripts.org/tutoria...ts/index.shtml

    It's about local so's, but about 2 pages in it talks about the oddities of deleting things. I imagine most of the same applies to deleting remote so's as well.

    Hope it helps!

    Psx
