Is there any way to list an app's local shared objects?  I know you can't list them all because of security, but I'm only interested in the objects that were created by my own app.

You can use the following code:

var sharedObject:SharedObject = SharedObject.getLocal("SHARED_OBJECT_NAME");
	
for(var i:* in sharedObject.data)
{
	trace(i + ": " + sharedObject.data[i]);
}

Open in new window


Good luck!

I think you misunderstood... I don't know the SHARED_OBJECT_NAME.  That's what I want to find.  There are a number of local shared objects and I want to enumerate them, find out what's there.

Oh... unfortunately that's not possible via code. Flash needs to know which key it's looking for and it'll decide on it's own where it'll look it up (depending on certain conditions like file location and server), however you can't access these rules, and can only open a SharedObject with the key (name).

You could use a program like Minerva (http://blog.coursevector.com/minerva) to navigate through the different folders and search your SharedObjects (which will give you the name).

Good luck!

Yeah, it's the program I needed to be able to enumerate the shared objects to get the key name.  Finding the name with Minerva or Windows Explorer won't help me much.  ;-)
