Without know exactly what you want to do, you might be able to rig something up using a swf wrapper of some sort (like zinc) which will load the swf, then trigger a print, then use one of the many free printer drivers which output .ps files -David R On 3/30/06, Ron Wheeler [EMAIL PROTECTED]

In my opinion, there is no good OOP way of changing the class of an object (be it movieclip or otherwsie). You might want to see if you can handle it in a different way, normally you should never change the class of an object. Why exactly do you want to change the class? -David R On 4/17/06,

LocalConnection is asynchronous. I don't know how mProjector got synchronous code in flash 7, it had to be some very clever hack. However, synchronous calls are supported natively in flash 8 (via ExternalInterface, which communicates with the host using a documented XML format I believe).
