    Question Flash file upload

    Does someone know how to create a file upload with 3DFA,
    of if that is possible?

    I would like to know

    Or, Kusco, can you include the necessary function to the next release ?

    I found a tutorial here:
    http://www.flash-db.com/Tutorials/upload/
    http://www.flash-db.com/Tutorials/upload/upFiles.php?
    but unfortunately it isn't working in 3DFA.

    Or if someone knows how to open the file-browsing dialog box with a button, that would be great, too!

    Greets, LewxX²

    To open the file browsing dialogue from a button, my understanding is that you just create the button, and on the 'button down' action, run a script that has the following code:

    PHP Code:
    // Initialise
    var ChooseFileTypes '*mp3;*exe'            // Types of files to be selected
    WhichFilesSelected = new Array                // Array in which the output will go
    // Now open the file open dialogue and capture data in array
    WhichFilesSelected Application.fileOpenMultiDialog (ChooseFileTypes)

    // Now cycle through the array, and do something with the output
    for (a=0a<=WhichFilesSelected.length a++)
        {
                 
    // Do something with each file 'WhichFileSelected[a]'
        

    Your array 'FilesSelected' should contain the names of all files selected.

    HOWEVER: This doesn't work on export. If I can get hold of the support e-mail address, I'll send it to them ! Is 4.9.8.7 just a beta test version or am I missing something fundamental?

    Cheers,

    M.

    Edit: This has been reported to support using the 'e-mail support' option from the website, since I figured an attachment was not needed.

    The Application class is internal only, not part of Flash, and is only intended for use with standalone executables. In any case, this class is renamed to Executable in the next release to avoid a name conflict with Flex.

    Thanks Kusco,

    That's a shame. Would have been nice functionality. So to do this, I guess it would have to be done with some sort of external script.

    All the same, it would be nice if 3DFA told you it wasn't compatible with Flash when compiling, rather than just crashing. Also, I found that this doesn't work in the executable after I compiled it, so I think this will need a bit of testing once the name changes have been completed.

    I'll have a think about a PHP script that might work instead.

    Kusco, could you include the flash.net.FileReference in the next release?

    to make the following script work?
    PHP Code:
    //Allow this domain
    System.security.allowDomain("http://localhost""127.0.0.1");
    import flash.net.FileReference;

    // The listener object listens for FileReference events.
    var listener:Object = new Object();

    listener.onSelect = function(selectedFile:FileReference):Void {
      
    statusArea.text += "Attempting to upload " selectedFile.name "\n";
      
    selectedFile.upload("http://localhost/upload/upload.php");
    };

    // the file is starting to upload.
    listener.onOpen = function(selectedFile:FileReference):Void {
      
    statusArea.text += "Uploading " selectedFile.name "\n";
    };
    listener.onHTTPError = function(file:FileReferencehttpError:Number):Void {
        
    imagePane.contentPath "error";
        
    imagePane.content.errorMSG.text "HTTPError number: "+httpError +"\nFile: "file.name;
    }

    listener.onIOError = function(file:FileReference):Void {
        
    imagePane.contentPath "error";
        
    imagePane.content.errorMSG.text "IOError: "file.name;
    }

    listener.onSecurityError = function(file:FileReferenceerrorString:String):Void {
        
    imagePane.contentPath "error";
        
    imagePane.content.errorMSG.text "SecurityError: "+SecurityError+"\nFile: "file.name;    
    }

    // the file has uploaded
    listener.onComplete = function(selectedFile:FileReference):Void {
      
    statusArea.text += "Upload finished.\nNow downloading " selectedFile.name " to player\n";
      
    details.text ""
      
    for(i in selectedFiledetails.text +="<b>"+i+":</b> "+selectedFile[i]+"\n"
      
    downloadImage(selectedFile.name);
    };

    var 
    imageFile:FileReference = new FileReference();
    imageFile.addListener(listener);

    I got it to work!

    Test it & Download source here:
    http://flash.lifestylepics.de/upload/

    The only thing that doesn't works:
    browse([typelist:Array])
    I can't set the typelist,

    in Adobe flash:
    browse([{description: "Image Files", extension: "*.jpg;*.gif;*.png"}]);
    works, but in 3DFA it doesn't!
