View Full Version : Error 1119 with FileReference.data

03-18-2009, 01:53 PM
I'm trying to select a file and load it into a mx:Image control. Here's a simplified snippet of my code:

private function addFiles():void {
fileRef = new FileReference();
fileRef.addEventListener(Event.SELECT, onSelectFile);

// Called when a file is selected
private function onSelectFile(event:Event):void {
txtFileName.text = fileRef.name;

fileRef.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, onLoadComplete);
fileRef.addEventListener(IOErrorEvent.IO_ERROR, onLoadError);

fileRef.load(); //getting error 1061 here

private function onLoadComplete(event:Event):void {
imgThumb.data = fileRef.data; //getting error 1119 here

For some reason, it's giving me two errors here: on the fileRef.load() line, I'm getting "1061: Call to a possibly undefined method load through a reference with static type flash.net:FileReference."

Where I'm accessing fileRef.data, I'm getting this error: "1119: Access of possibly undefined property data through a reference with static type flash.net:FileReference."

From what I understand, it doesn't think the load() method or the data property are valid for a FileReference object. The documentation says otherwise. What's going on here? What am I missing?

I'm working with Flex Builder 3 (though the same thing happens when compiling from the command line), Flash Player 10, and the Flex 3.3.0 sdk.

You're not compiling for FP10. Check your compiler settings and path to playerglobals.swc. FileReference.data and FileReference.load() exist only in FP10.

That did the trick. I also found info here: http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/flexsdk/Targeting+Flash+Player+10.
