Text file and Flash
Posted on 2002-04-18
Here's whay I need to know and if it's possible, for someone to help me set it up. I need a text files which will serve as a master file for a flash movie. It needs to be sort of like a database, only that the files are not going to be on the server, they are going to be on a computer harddrive. What I need to do is to make some text in flash and make them links, but since the links can change I need to create a text file from which the flash will will call upon this text file to pull info from it and place appropriate links in it. I know how it works when the files are on the server and how to load additional movies into flash and all, but never done this stuff with text and text files. Is it possible? Please help me out. Thanks, I really appreciate your help.
