As I describe here, I'm building a web videogame on Adobe Flex. I'm loading and saving files with the FileReference methods load() and save(). I have two quick questions on them about special features:
How can I tell the save dialog box (that is FileReference.save()) to use only a certain file extension? (I did that already with the loading.)
How can I make the dialog boxes open a certain folder (like "C:/Games/myGame/"), rather than the system's default folder?
From the docs:
You can only specify a default filename for the save method
When the file is saved successfully, the properties of the FileReference object are populated with the properties of the local file. The
complete event is dispatched if the save is successful.
The FileReference and FileReferenceList classes do not let you set the default file location for the dialog box that the
download() methods generate.
The default location shown in the dialog box is the most recently browsed folder, if that location can be determined, or the desktop.
The classes do not allow you to read from or write to the transferred file.
They do not allow the SWF file that initiated the upload or download to access the uploaded or downloaded file or the file's location on the user's disk.
Ok, I did the default filename trick. Thanks!
