    'Sorry.  Select fewer files' error - how to workaround?

    celebritymusic Level 1

      Hi

       

      I'm making an app that loads selected files from a folder, and then parses the filenames.

       

      It needs to work for 1000's of files at a time.  Problem is, I get a 'Sorry. Select fewer files' error.

       

      I was wondering if there is a way to tell Air to load all the files in a particular directory, rather than selecting files.  If not, is there a workaround for the above error?

       

      My code for loading the files so far is:

       

      var filesFilter:FileFilter = new FileFilter("Allowed file types", "*.mp3");

       

      function browseMedia (e:MouseEvent):void {
         
          newMediaFile.addEventListener(FileListEvent.SELECT_MULTIPLE, filesSelected);
          newMediaFile.browseForOpenMultiple("Select your file/files", [filesFilter]);
      }

       

       

      Thanks for your help.
