Hello,
I'm trying to download a URL to a variable, like downloading the source…
The site contains information that the flash needs to get and process.
Since it's not mine I can't change it to the Load Variables () format… i.e. – myText = .
So basically I want to download the HTML source.
Perhaps one of the new components in MX 2004 does it…
Any ideas?

Hi,

 Can you be more specific and explain in more detail what you are exactly trying to do?

Thanks,
KP

If your trying to get the HTML source from a page, it can't be done in Flash.
This would be a simple process in Java using a DataInputStream but it gets complicated when trying to send the streamed data to Flash.

I agree with krishnaprathab. You'll need to give a better explanation.

Cheers
