    reading directories?

    Is there anyway in Flash (perhaps using a bit of php?) to;

    a)Read through a given directory for images until the last image is reached.
    b)Convert those images into thumbnail buttons, or mc's that you can 'drag and drop'?

    windows batch file method (no php, asp, or whatever server tools needed):
    http://board.flashkit.com/board/show...91&postcount=7

    otherwise propably php,- would be nice if someone posted a nice smal php script that returns flash a xml that includes the files and folders of the requested folder, like:
    fileList.php?dir=images/thumbnails

    right now most of my works are manual edited and created xml files because that works fastest for me from development time. Like when creating an editor I create a xml file that contains the most recent files I worked with.

    Well there is

    Not suitable for my purposes, but maybe ok for you.
    I'll check out the Windows batch file method, thanks.

    well why not,- because it requires php or beeing online? - if thats the case there is portable web:
    http://portablewebap.com/
    just start the exe and within its subfolders you have a active php environment with apache database. can be used on autorun cd- roms as well. But I agree rather tricky if youd use it for such.

    Ill have a look into the link you gave me,- thx for that. But if I want such a script some day I propably write it myself with the help of my php books- but that link might be a good step starting.

    I may be a little less familiar, but in my opinion, this could add to my knowledge of php, thanks
