    Reading a TXT file from a Flash Movie

    Knud59
      Using "LoadVariables" to establish a connection between the running Flash program and a text file in the same folder works just as expected with no problems. I am on a Windows machine and using the recipe from the fabulous help system.

      The problem - yes there IS a problem - arises when the text file contains special Danish characters.

      The odd part here is, that everything works fine from inside Falsh using "Test Movie", but not when publishing the movie and launching from inside a browser (both IE and Firefox).
      The help system says, that data should be URL-encoded. Trying that (characters %e6, %f8 and %e5) does not fix anything. The input is read, but the offending character is gobbled up along with the two next characters, or the program simply hangs.

      Any suggestions?[
