The movie is setGet.dir and demonstrates the use of setPref()
In the developers note that is in a lib member in the sample
movie it says:
"After the setPref command runs, if the movie is playing in a
browser, a folder named Prefs is created in the Plug-In Support
folder. The setPref command can write only to that folder.
If the movie is playing in a projector or Director, a folder
is created in the same folder as the application. The folder
receives the name Prefs.
Another nice thing is that if you assign a name to the pref
file (it is 'cygnus.txt' in this example), you can have as many
pref files as you like, as long as it is a unique name."
This sounds like exactly what I need. And I expected to find,
after running the movie, a folder called "Prefs" and a file called
'cygnus.txt' in that folder, in the same folder as the application.
I can't find that folder anywhere. Not where the director.dir
file is and not where the Director.exe is either. Even a search of
my whole computer doesn't find that folder or file. Yet the little
sample movie works okay.
Here it is again: "If the movie is playing in a projector or
Director, a folder is created in the same folder as the
application. The folder receives the name Prefs." It doesn't!!!
What am I missing here?
