I created a flash file that pulls text files and images. I
have the text files and images posted to the web and in my flash
file I have absolute url's to the location. When I test the movie
on my computer it works fine, but once I upload the flash file the
images pull in but the text files won't, I get the else of my if
statement saying there is an error. Any help would be greatly
Flash won't load the text files from a domain different than
of where the swf is laoded from. This is a violation of flash's
security. If the text files resides in a different domain than that
of the swf, then you will need to add your swf's domain in
cross-domain.xml file. This cross-domain.xml file should reside in
the root of the website that houses your text files.
Another solution/work-around is to move the text files into
the same domain as your swf.
It works from the development envrionment becaues the
security measures aren't enforced there. It won't work locally
outside of flash either unless you explicitly give it permission.
Thanks for your answer. I am running the swf file and the txt
files under the same domain. They are in separate folders, but
under the same domain. I tried running them in the same folder and
the txt files were still not pulling in.
