    Flash XML 'database'

    Is it possible to create an XML file on someones computer (when Flash file is stored locally)?

    I need to create a Flapplication to store data (some numbers) as XML file/s. Essentially 7 numbers, in date encoded files (e.g. 1 number per day).

    Can it be done?

    Will it work on all machines with the 5 plugin and later?

    Learn to use SharedObjects which are "flash cookies". Whatever you put in, you can get out later. I haven't done XML but I have stored objects in a shared object. And then added variables or attributes to the object to store values in.

    Hope that helps.

    Thinking outside of the box will get you fired if the "box" is strict budget.

    Wicked man, cheers.

    That'll only function in Flash play 6 though, won't it? Not a big problem, I'm just wondering...
