i know this is the 3d forum but i swear i have seen the answer to my question on this list before. is there a shockwave-safe file xtra or something that will allow u to bring up a file open dialog that plays thru the shockwave player in a web browser? i know about the fileio and mui xtras, but these can only be included in projectors it appears. i am looking for one that will work in the shockwave player. i just want a file path returned so i can change the fileName of an image member to that ...

    Default file open dialog

    i know this is the 3d forum but i swear i have seen the answer to my
    question on this list before.

    is there a shockwave-safe file xtra or something that will allow u to bring
    up a file open dialog that plays thru the shockwave player in a web browser?

    i know about the fileio and mui xtras, but these can only be included in
    projectors it appears. i am looking for one that will work in the shockwave
    player.

    i just want a file path returned so i can change the fileName of an image
    member to that of a file located on a client's hard drive, one of their
    choosing. this does not appear to me to be too terribly of an insecure
    operation, as long as the user is choosing the path, i certainly understand
    about restricting the player's access to a client's harddrive though.

    thanks,
    jamie

    You should probably try HTML+JavaScript to browse files and give filepaths to Director.
