I am new to Flash 8 and AS 2.0, so bare with me ...
Is there any way to display/render ordinary image types
(.gif, .jpg, ...) in AS 2.0 without relying on the server's
I have my image data stored binary in a database (ms sql
The binary image data is then transfered (encoded in base64)
over xml from my server side (asp.net 2.0) to my Flash 8 client
component (.swf file).
Upon arrival in the client (Flash .swf file) the binary image
data is decoded and kept in String variable in Flash 8.
These steps seem to work fine although I would have prefered
Flash 8 to expose a "true" Byte datatype instead of using a String
But how do I go about from here to successfully render the
final image in Flash 8?
Thus, what I am trying to do is to use the memory as a "url
path" for my image data and not referencing some image file through
a "url filesystem path".
Can this be done in Flash 8?
I have looked at the (new) BitmapData API in flash 8 but it
seems as even this API relies on some sort of filesystem involvment
in the exposed method arguments...
I am creating a website with an "extra" administration gui
where the admin account will not have write access on the
hence I am storing the images in a database and trying to
render images dynamically "from memory" ...
Does anyone have any tips or ideas how to approach this
