    Two Questions Regarding Outside Applications

    Two quick questions:

    Can I open a word file from a button within flash standalone projector? If so, what's the actionscript?

    Also, can I open the folder view of the cd from which the projector is stored on? For example, after clicking a button within the projector, it would be the same as clicking the "My Computer" icon, then clicking the "D:" drive...

    Thanks in advance...

    This thread describes how to open a PDF file using a couple of FREE utilities I wrote and provides the ActionScript and BAT files for the PC (it also shows the equivalent AppleScript necessary to make the same possible on a MAC).

    As for opening explorer on the drive where the projector is launched from, this will do the trick.

    drv = _url.substr(8,1);
    geturl(drv + ":");

    Sure.

    1. Use *********** JStart to open your word docs, pdf etc. Download an evaluation copy and try it yourself.

    2. Yes you can do this also using JStart and Jugglor see

    You can also download a copy of Flash Studio PRO which can do this for you.
