I wrote a small app with the early versions of Adobe Air that
essentially monitored for swear words in any HTML Content. This
monitoring was done in Flex and effectively monitored HTML objects
innerHTML for any matches. I had no problems doing this with early
versions of Air, but seem to be having problems with the latest 1.0
Previous versions allowed me to check child IFrames,
belonging to the root HTML object, innerHTML content and relevant
locations. Now however it seems that the root application cannot
access any data relating to child IFrame's. Is there anyway around
this issue, or is this going to be continued with all later
I have attempted to set a custom HTMLHost or HTMLLoader for
child IFrame object's but again this does not seem to have any
affect at all, meaning that any custom functionality that I have
implemented in my own HTMLLoader or HTMLHost is skipped for all
content loaded within a child IFrame.
Any help or info related to my issue would be brilliant.
Thank's for releasing such an incredible platform to the market for
free Adobe.... along with your recent announcement of the Flash and
Flex platform's you guys really are building a platform for the
future of the web.
I'm having a similar problem; I've not been able to read the
content of a HTMLLoader once it has loaded some remote content.
I've read the sandbox stuff (and tried), but I fail to
realize how it could solve my problem - without resorting to some
serious kludging anyway (would nested iframes do the trick,
I've seen several questions about reading the content of a
HTMLLoader (or iframe) - it's pretty obvious that it would be very
useful in many situations.
(Quite frankly I don't see why it's restricted this way - I
can delete the whole harddrive, but I can't read the contents of
the HTMLLoader. It's not like eval() would work even if I really
tried to do something stupid. Anyway, perhaps I've misunderstood or
missed a property or something...)
