one way of doing it:

class MyClass {

var file:FileReference;

function doit() {
  file = new FileReference();

function onCancel() {
 trace("user canceled");

function onBlah() ....


hope this helps,

Hi dear Hank
I think after a successfull upload and inserting in db, I can set the record ID 
(or any thing else) in User Session in server and after successful upload( 
returning true to flash ) call a simple remoting method that invoke id from 
session and return it to flash.

After all I think I don't undrestand some of key features of AS 2.0 ::

listener.onCancel = function(file:FileReference):Void {
listener.onOpen = function(file:FileReference):Void {
    trace("onOpen: " +;
listener.onProgress = function(file:FileReference, bytesLoaded:Number, 
bytesTotal:Number):Void {
    trace("onProgress with bytesLoaded: " + bytesLoaded + " bytesTotal: " + 

I don't know where can I put event methods like this in my AS 2.0 class. What 
did I misundrestand??
All the samples are in AS1 and I don't know what to do for my events :(

Subject: Re: [Flashcoders] FileReference and actionscript 2.0

I am curious what those tricks are.

What I do is to ask the server for an "upload code" number before I upload
This upload code is associated with the given user and whatever the user is
trying to do. This is application specific. This creates a record in the
database, so that when the file is uploaded the server knows what it is.
Then I send the parameter as part of the upload URL. Additionally, I make
the upload codes time out. So if a code isnt used within a few minutes it is
no longer usable.
