Re: [Flashcoders] ExternalInterface.call not working on desktop...??

2009-07-31 Thread Hans Wichman
Hi,

html on the desktop is not going work, but you might have some luck when
updating the security settings.
I have the following batch file in most of my projects:
@echo off
rem echo %APPDATA%
rem echo %CD%
echo [Enter name for security file inserted into %APPDATA%]:
echo (use a single keyword, no spaces, no dots and no .cfg in it)
SET /p fileName=
echo Creating %APPDATA%\Macromedia\Flash
Player\#Security\FlashPlayerTrust\%fileName%.cfg
echo %CD%  %APPDATA%\Macromedia\Flash
Player\#Security\FlashPlayerTrust\%fileName%.cfg

Store it in a batch file in the same dir as your fla, run it and enter some
bogus keyword to identify your settings with, eg desktop.

regards
JC

 You should be getting error messages to that effect. You can test whether
 or not it's available to use with the Boolean ExternalInterface.available
 property.

 The menu.swf actually is set to Access local files only and seems to work
 only from the website...

 Thanks for responding Karl... would changing the setting to Access network
 files only allow a broader or narrower selection of files...?

  Check you publish settings, you probably have it set to network only.

I think if the loaded swf is in a main swf, it inherits the root  
security?


Not positive.

AFAIK ExternalInterface doesn't work in the standalone player, only in the 
browser.
