I'd like to develop a flex application that, after clicking a button, opens a pop-up window like when double-clickind on a disk or folder icon on pc. Then I'd wish to choose and read a file.
I think it's impossible using only flex, but could it be possible using flex and air together?
For example could flex application downloads the AIR application and interacts with it to make the operations above mentioned?
Could someboby suggest to me some reference / hint to do this?
Thanks a lot !!!!
flash player 10 has file reference which allows you to browse and select files - the following is for images but as you can extract the data of a file obviously this would work for all formats supported by flex such as flv/text/jpg/mp3. You can also save files to local disk(with flex only 1 at a time due to security constraints but AIR is a little different).
very amazing David !!! thanks a lot
