    automatic url enconding or clear text, don't know...

    I'm loading a text in a textfilde with loadVars and in text file putting
    varname=text text text?
    but the text will be changed by other peoples that not know the URLEncoding codes like %blabla
    Have anyway to load the text like the original file?

    Thanks

    i do not think there is a way to load a plain text file in flash. but suppose there were such a way, then you would have to write code to parse it and to populate the variables manually. and then it would turn out that the file still needs to be url-encoded because values might contain special characters such as ampersands (&) besides blanks and your parsing engine would break without encoding them, right? so, you are stuck with encoding as long as you use the name=value&...&name=value format. you could use xml but there the text nodes containing '<' and '>' would still have to be encoded to prevent the parser from misinterpreting them as parts of elements.

    Ok, I understand...
    You talk me that is too much easy that my workteam learn how to write the txt with URLenconde codes?
    Ok... I do it, but the easy way for all, but not (is not a problem, thats my work), will create a function that do like
    textvar=URLEncode(txtvar);
    They will know that the text may be between txtvar= and & codes...

    So.. thank you

    maybe your team would have no problem learning how to use % escape sequences, but maybe it is easier to write a program that would url-encode the data for them that they could use.

    i am not sure i understand what you say about

    textvar=URLEncode(txtvar);

    when this code would be executed?

    textvar=URLEncode(txtvar); would be runned when the program
    read the .txt and load into txtvar.
    then it would "auto" convert plain text to urlencoded text to be displayed by my movie.

    if anybody have some idea, will welcome to post here.
    tks
