    load local image display in air app

    masterkrang Level 1

      I am trying to load an image from the local file system, then diplay it in my air window. I don't have any problems getting the file reference from the open file dialog, problem is that I don't know what to do then. Somebody on another forum suggested using Loader.load to open the file using file.url as the URLRequest. This hasn't worked for me at all and I can't find any place online that explains how to do this. Thanks for the help

          Try this:


          var loader:Loader;


          var file:File = new File();
          var imagesFilter:FileFilter = new FileFilter("Images", "*.jpg;*.jpeg;*.gif;*.png");
          file.browseForOpen("Open file", [imagesFilter]);
          file.addEventListener(Event.SELECT, imgSelected);


          function imgSelected(event:Event):void
              loader = new Loader();
              var urlReq:URLRequest = new URLRequest(file.url);
              loader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, imgLoaded);


          function imgLoaded(event:Event):void
              var bmp:Bitmap = new Bitmap();
              bmp = loader.content as Bitmap;

            ok, i think i see where the mistake is.


            probably here: loader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, imgLoaded);


            i did this instead loader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, imgLoaded);
