    Loadings filenames from a folder

    fatti2
      How would I go about loading filenames from a folder into a list box?

      Thanks in advance.

          can't. no access to filesystem (security). You have to use either some
          server side script, or some third party solution. In what context do you
          want to do this?

            Its a program for playing video and music, it would run from a cd-rom. The context this would be used in is to find the files in a folder to playback as a playlist.

              Well, if this is a list that's going to be static you could always make it
              in XML. Or use screenweaver, it's an open source tool that will allow you to
              wrap your Flash in an API so that you can access OS functions. It's a little
              cumbersome to use, otherwise some people have been recommending Jugglor.
