    Question contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener Original File Name???

    Hi guys,

    I'm using this code to load a file...
    Actionscript Code:
    var swfLoader:Loader = new Loader();
    swfLoader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, loadProdComplete);

    function loadProdComplete(e:Event):void {
    trace("Loaded File: " + ????); // I want to see: "Loaded File: MyNiceFile"

    How do i get the file name that has been loaded? How do i get "MyNiceFile.swf" -- or even better "MyNiceFile"

    I have tried this..., but all i see is "instance32" which must be the temp name of the loaded file.

    Any help would be great!

    Ok, answering my own question until someone can give me a better answer.

    If anyone else is trying to do this, the only way I've found to get the file name of the file being loaded is to use the "url" parameter:

    var fileName:String = (swfLoader.loaderInfo.url.slice(swfLoader.loaderIn fo.url.lastIndexOf("/")+1,swfLoader.loaderInfo.url.lastIndexOf(".") ))

    It seems a bit over the top to get the filename though
