I am getting strange extra characters when I decode text that
i have encoded
I have a procedure that does the following:
*retrieves a base64 encoded file
*decodes the file into text
*displays the text in a Flex Textarea,
*The user edits the text,
*OnSave, the text is re-encoded in Base64,
*then saved back to my database.
I am using the Base64 encode and decode functions from the
following ActionScript librairies
Detail of the problem:
When I go to re-edit the file that I had viewed and saved, I
see a couple extra characters at the beginning of my file. The
characters often look like "-g-h".
I am not able to just trim the string, since it doesn't seem
to always be 1 character long.
Is this a bug or user error?
Any recommendations, whether they be troubleshooting, or how
to fix this?
My Decode code is here:
var b:Base64Decoder = new Base64Decoder();
if (dHTMLDocument.Body != null)
// display the decoded text on the screen
var bytes:ByteArray = b.flush();
tEditArea.text = bytes.toString();
and my Encode code is here:
var bytes:ByteArray = new ByteArray();
var sTemp:String = tEditArea.text;
bytes.position = 0;
// encode the body of the document
var b:Base64Encoder = new Base64Encoder();
// store any changes the user made to the document in memory
sTemp = b.flush();
dHTMLDocument.Body = sTemp;
