    Detecting files in a folder

    BarryGee
      Hi.

      Is it possible for flash to detect the number of files (ie. images) stored in a folder / directory on the server or local machine. In the same way that it can look into an xml file and detect the number of nodes (i know this is completly different but its the best way i can explain it). What i want to do is load images dynamically into flash without having to know how many images are in the folder before hand. I know i can do this with an xml file to direct flash to each image and update the xml accordingly but i am wondering if it is possible to get flash to detect this automattically?

      thanks

      Barry.
