I need to develop an on-line app in which the user can select
a file from his computer, open it, select all (Ctrl+A), and copy
all (Ctrl+C), and paste (Ctrl+V) it into a Flash input text field.
The point of my app is then to further process the pasted text.
My initial question...How can I have the user select which
file to open from within the Flash app? Do I need some sort of
component that can mimic the Windows Open File Dialog...or is there
an easier way to have the user select the file from their computer
that they want to use?
Then, is there an easy way to copy and paste the contents of
that file into the input text field without the user having to do
much of anything...or do they still need to do some minimal steps.
(I'm trying to make this as easy as possible from an end user
