Hello, I'm new to flash and have to modify some actionscript to ensure the latest version of the flash object is loaded instead of pulling from the users cache. I have seen that I could do something like this:

images_xml.load("images.xml?cachebuster=" + new Date().getTime());

and that would ensure the users get the latest version. Is that correct??


If so, the actionscript that I need to modify has an init function. I believe that is the correct function to retrieve and load the xml file. Below is the function: how can it me modified to bust that cache???





function init(e:Event) {
			trace('init');
			removeEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, init);
			xmlURL = root.loaderInfo.parameters.xmlURL || 'flashbar_Default.xml';
						
			initComponents();
			initEventHandlers();
			
		}
