Hey all. I have designed a quick and dirty power point to
flash converter. One thing I would like to do is to be able to tell
how many slides there are beforehand, without user input yet
knowing the folder the slides are in, so I can dynamically create
an index of some sort. I know there are ways to do this by just
going through and attempting to load the slides until I find one
that does not load but this is too inefficient when there are a lot
I guess I am looking for help coming up with other methods if
they exist. Thanks in advance.
In case anyone needs this in the future, I was able to come
up with a little better solution as I also notice was mentioned
some in the forums but I did not find till just now. Anyway, I just
basically attempted to load the movies and checked the bytes total.
If there were bytes, there was a file. With this method I was able
to go through many more files in a shorter period of time.
