Does anyone know a good tutorial to load in an external jpg
into Flash where actionscript has to check the time/date of the
image in the folder with the one in flash and update it if it's a
Actually if all you need to do is check whether the image has
changed (different pixels) then you could use the BitmapData class
to compare the current and new images.
Create a BitmapData object from both the current image (which
is loaded into current_mc), and the new image (loaded into new_mc).
Then compare the two. If their different, then you can update
current_mc with the new image.
If I get some time, I'll try and create an example - unless
anyone has one sitting around??
