I need to create an interface in Director that lets the user
browse through downloadable resource files. Does anyone know of a
way to pull in a preview of the file (like you get in the Windows
Explorer or the Mac Finder) to show the cover/first page of a pdf,
word doc etc. Primarily need a Windows solution, but would prefer
to be able to do a cross platform solution if at all possible.
Thought that might be the only way - I'm going to have a
large number of files (there could be hundreds), think I might try
to persuade the client that file icons associated to their
applications would be more feasible. That way I can have a handful
of icons that get picked up depending on the file extension.
