use the loadvars class and its load method to load your csv file and use the onData method of the loadvars class and the flash string methods to parse your csv file.
Thanks for your response.
I have managed to load the CSV from a URL using loadvars and, without meaning to sound like a total rookie, still am having trouble getting a text box to display the data, let alone achieve a lookup function as detailed in the original post.
Does anyone have any simple steps to achieve this?
I am going to assume it involves firstly defining the columns (id, name, surname) first in some way.
Thanks again in advance for your help
assign your csv data to a variable, use the string methods to parse those data as you need and then display the parsed data in your textfield according to your needs.
Hi there, I don't mean to sound like a pain in the arse, but is it possible that you could explain it in 'baby steps' possibly with some examples of scripting?
I have done something like this in Director about 4 years ago, and it is so frustrating I can't get it to work in Flash. Thanks very, very much
