Image loader anyone?

Hi All,


So sorry if there is already answer here but I could not find it. This used to work on the simulator but does not work on device:


    myLoader = new flash.display.Loader();




    myLoader.load(new URLRequest("file:///accounts/1000/shared/camera/IMG_00000005.jpg"));

   // yes folks the jpg exists and the location is correct..





     private function onPreviewCom():void{   


          /// Hmmmmm! code NEVER get here, never completes dowload (or upload, whatever)





Any ideas???


Thanks! Udi

The URL might be different between the simulator and the device. Hard coding paths like this is dangerous. Use the File class to get the relative position of the file then use the url or native path method of the file class to the URLRequest object.

Also make sure to do <action>access_shared</action> to rrquest permission to read and write to the shared directory.
