    Path to a file with a Mac



      I create a application for PC with Air which works fine. It load external pdf files.

      I need to create it for mac too, but i have a problem with path on mac.

      here is a exemple of trace done on mac :

      (String) =/Applications/Urgo/URGO Book.app/Contents/Resources/data/files/URGO/01 - DONNÉES MARCHÉ/01 - Argumentaire Urgo.pdf


      Has you can see there are french characters and space in the path.

      But it's works on PC so is it the real problem?

          What exactly is the problem are you experiencing, and what code seems to be the issue?

            Hello Greg,


            here is the function for launching a pdf im my application :


            public static function creationPdf(fichier:File ):void
                        var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(fichier.url);
                        //MonsterDebugger.trace ( "Affichepdf_creationpdf", "request :" + fichier.nativePath);        //trace on the previous message
                        _pdfExist = true;       


            To be compatible with a mac the path MUST have no french character an NO space...

            How can I do to get same result as the PC.

            As you can see I use the property "url" I try with nativePath too.



            I try wi the AIR 2.0 framework and it's the same thing....
