My flex application contains a form that uploads a file into the server. This file is however saved in the database, and not on the disk. Most of the tutorials in the database explains how to download a file by passing the file's url to the "download" function of the fileReference Object. That dsnt work for me as my file is saved in the database.
How do I download this file from the server ?
For example, in php, we would do smthing like this :
$content = $file_to_download['content'];
$size = $file_to_download['content_size'];
$type = $file_to_download['content_type'];
$name = $file_to_download['filename'];
header("Content-Description:PHP Generated Data");
When executing this file, it opens up the "download file" dialog box. How do i get the same effect in flex 4 ?
You need the bytes use FileReference.download() and after download you can save
it on disk with FileReference.save(); You also need FP 10 at least I think. Use
the docs they are less error pron than mi memory :).
i still havent found a solution to this.. .. .. please help!
