Hi there,

I have developed an application in flash, running via projector, that requires information to be writting to a text file on the mac local hard drive.

The application is designed to be run offline, so I cant use any kind of scripting at all.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can do this, via projector at all or via 3rd party software.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Hi,

 The best way to go about it to use FlashStudio PRO which is a 3rd Party SWF tool by which you can create text files or even access databases. Since your application is standalone and is in exe format you can very well use this tool. It also have some other very good features. The URL is :

www.multidmedia.com/software/flashstudio/ 

Apart from this you can use the fscommand("exec","application.exe") command to write to a text file. But you have to write custom application to write text files. The best option would be to go for Flash Studio Pro as it qould save lot of time and is also very easy to use.

Thanks,
KP

Hi,

Check out the following links:

http://flashtools.net/downloads/fclt_downloads.htm

Though this tool supports only windows. Check out the system requirmnets section and scroll to the bottom and the author says you can use Applescripts to acheiev this.

Check out this one too:

http://www.flashmaxx.fsnet.co.uk/

and look out for the program named FlashTools

These are the ones which are closest to your requirment.

Thanks,
