Say I have a bunch of XML files in the directory with my web
app (or in a subdirectory) and I want the app to be able to create
a list of all available files, without resorting to a separate
index.xml file to list them. How do I do that? They'll be named
according to a certain convention, like FC080415.xml where the
numbers represent the date created, in year-month-day format so
they're in chronological order.
If I put them in a directory without an index.html file and
make a URLRequest to that directory, I can get a directory listing
with a bunch of junk mixed in and could probably write some code to
separate the file names out, but that can't be the "right" way to
do it. Flex 3 has a File class that has functions for getting a
directory listing, but it only works for AIR apps.
