Subject RE: methods for web app to read text file on client's computer?
Date Mon, 06 Jul 2015 11:34:32 GMT
Well I use the filereference to select files the user wants to upload using a web app.  So
I do know the user can select and upload files from user local files.  Never tried to read
one directly however after the user has selected the files.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but these functions by default can only read client files if the
swf runs locally on their computer. If I'm making a web app running in a browser, the sandbox
prevents accessing client file contents. I'm thinking only AIR allows permissions for reading
client files. 


I prefer to integrate the file reading/processing into my existing web app, rather than give
the customer a 2nd application to use (e.g. AIR). But I don't see a way around this. Can anyone
comment if I missed something?

check for URLLoader & FileReference for file reading from client computer. 
CSV parsing code , you can search on google.
