    Frustrating SandBox Restriction

    buabco Level 1
      Yesterday I realized that you can't turn an image loaded from another domain into a BITMAPDATA unless you have a crossdomain policy file on it. For the application I was planning to do this was very frustrating since the use of BITMAPDATA allowed me to have a really cool image cache.

      I still can't figure out why is this restriction in place. Clearly this kill any filter you might want to apply to the image but also it wont prevent you from distorting the image, since you can still draw stuff on it and you still can distort it with the rotation, and scale properties.

      So please can someone explain me why is rational to have this kind of restriction?
