Hi,

How do you do the equivalent of System.exit in AS3?

Hey, you can use fscommand("quit"), but don't forget this will work only for Projectors, it wont close any Projector windows.

Is there no generic "System.exit"?

Only available as an AIR app:

NativeApplication.exit(...);

you can't exit out an app that is embedded as a movie in some web page. You navigate away from it to exit out.

Kinda late, but anyways


import flash.system.System;

System.exit(); // exits the SWF running in flash player/projector

System.gc(); // runs garbage collection now to consume less memory
