Good afternoon,
Im fairly new to flash and wondering if it is possible to browse for a file on the users local hard drive, and open it in segments?

Ive been trying to work on a solution for a while using Java and Silverlight, and someone suggested I try Flash.

Ive done a bit of Flash Actionscripting before but a long time ago.

Is it possible to present the user with a FileOpen Dialog and then open the selected file in chucks (say 250 Kb)???

Any sample code would be brilliant for this!!!

Thank you

In Flash for web-versiion, you may use FileReference to select files for upload or read and display.

Though the examples are using flex, but you can use the ActionScript code in flash CS3 onwards.
