View Full Version : Adobe Air Security Issue??

03-06-2008, 09:23 AM
So ive just really got to grips with AS2 then AS3 kicks me right in the balls!!

Im trying out a Air app where you simply drag and drop a jpg onto the app and it loads the jpg.. its from a flv tut from gotoandlearn.com.

the problem im having is i want to drag and drop jpgs from a browser window and have it load. Its weird because the process works in the .swf format but when published in Air it cant pick up the Url/path anymore???

(desktop drag and drops work fine as it can find the path)

Heres the code:

import flash.desktop.NativeDragManager;
import flash.events.NativeDragEvent;
import flash.desktop.ClipboardFormats;

var imageLoader:Loader = new Loader();

this.addEventListener(NativeDragEvent.NATIVE_DRAG_ ENTER, onDragEnter);
this.addEventListener(NativeDragEvent.NATIVE_DRAG_ DROP, onDragDrop);

function onDragEnter(e:NativeDragEvent):void{
var fa:Object = e.clipboard.getData(ClipboardFormats.FILE_LIST_FOR MAT);


function onDragDrop(e:NativeDragEvent):void{
var fa:Object = e.clipboard.getData(ClipboardFormats.FILE_LIST_FOR MAT);

imageLoader.load(new URLRequest(fa[0].url));

what do i need to do to alter:

imageLoader.load(new URLRequest(fa[0].url));

to make it get the correct path? or is this simply a security problem/issue?

Why does the .swf work but not the Air app?

And finally i tried to trace the issue but how can i trace when publishing in Air?

Any help would be great. Thanks!
