Click to See Complete Forum and Search --> : Writing to and editing local txt file

07-13-2000, 08:29 AM
I have managed to get a projector to create a text file that contains information from a single text field. When the app is reopened the information is called into the fields.

However what I need to do is create the text file and then be able edit the text fields and hit 'save' and the text file is updated.

This is going to be part of a project where the information is then sent off using a formail when somebody is online and they click 'send'.

The 'save' button uses the exec command and is the 'write to a file' FLA available in the movies section.

Right by splitting the movie into an edit and view section I have managed to get the editing and saving thing working, but it won't save any information that contains spaces i.e 'myname' is fine 'my name' kills the whole thing.

Obviously it is possible to send off variables with gaps.

Any ideas

Yes - how do you get Flash to send data to a text file -- that's the Holy Grail for me. I'm trying to get Flash to save info in a text file. I'm working on an educational game that can be run w/o a web server i.e. from a CD or a users hard drive. I need Flash to save a student's results in a text file. Can this be done w/ Flash?
