    File path from FileReference

    mcsanders

      Help! In Flex Builder, I'm trying to grab information about an image the user has selected using the FileReference browse method.  Any idea how I can get the local path to the file?   Should I be using something other than FileReference?  Here's a code snipit of what I'm doing:

       

       

       

      private

       

       

      var fileRef:FileReference;

      ...

      fileRef =

       

      new FileReference();

      ...

       

       

       

       

       

       

      private

      function onSelectFile(event:Event):void {

         imageLocationText.text = ?????

         imageNameText.text = fileRef.name;

         fileRef.load();

      ...

      }
