Basically I want to use fscommand to write a local file. I think there may be some issues --
variable = "1235";
path = "file.txt";
fscommand ("save", path);
textbox1.text = "HI"; //just so i know it is getting to this point.
One, does this work on vista? I am running vista so that may be why its not working.
Two, I also heard rumors about it not working in IE7 or higher, is that true?
Three, I also have read that it only works when running the swf file in flash projector, is that true?
If I understand you correctly, I think the 'shared object' might be what you need.
The AS2 Language Reference in F8 starts off like this:
"The SharedObject class is used to read and store limited amounts of data on a user's computer. Shared objects offer real-time data sharing between objects that are persistent on the user's computer. Local shared objects are similar to browser cookies. ....."
hope that helps.
