Opening files in Director

Hi, I used director about 10 years ago to do an interactive CD for a company i was working for at the time. I am currently trying to devise a way where a user can open a pdf file or what ever file they choose from a menu on the screen - not just using a Open File dialogue box - but no matter what i do, it just doesnt work. I copied the xtra into the same directory as the movies, i was trying to open movies using this just for experimentation - i thought if anything this would work, it didn't...
I copied and pasted this command straight from the pages of the help file for the Xtra
-  on mouseclick
-    object.openFile(Probes.dir, 1)
-  end
It keeps coming up with this error message...
Operator expected
object.?openfile(nameoffile.dir, 1)
Don't know what's going on... I wish i kept the older interactive cd...
Damn you hindsight!!!

I'm now using the Buddy API xtra you suggested I have changed the script to this:
on mouseUp me
  xObject = xtra("Buddy API Xtra").new()
  returnedValue = xObject.openFile("HeartStyle_Y360_flyer.pdf", 1)
end
to accommodate the change and I am still getting...
Script error:Object expected
xObject = xtra("Buddy API Xtra").new()
I've tried to include file extensions in the script as well, that didnt work...
I even tried...
on mouseUp me
  xObject = xtra("Buddy API Xtra").new()
  baOpenFile( the moviePath & "HeartStyle_Y360_flyer.pdf" , "maximised" )
end
baOpenfile being a function in Buddy API...
This is befuddling... I'm doing something wrong and I am sure it's an easy fix. But I just can't find it.

    Hi Simon,
    This is very much a FAQ. I have an answer to it at:
    http://www.fbe.unsw.edu.au/learning/director/resources/FAQ/pdf.asp
    As Sean suggested, it's worth searching the group as often
    questions have been covered before, and in this case, many times
    before.
    You can use Google to search through forums at:

  • Files on director 12 being opened with director 11.5?

    Can i upload adobe director 12 files on adobe director 11.5? As i am developing a game on 12 but the receiver only has 11.5.

    Adobe has decided that only Director 12 and above can open files created in Director 12.
    Technically, it is possible to modify the bits in a Director file that prevent older versions of Director from opening it (see here: http://forums.adobe.com/message/5144541 ), but it would probably be better to find a better workflow.
    Can your correspondent install a trial version of Director 12, in order to test your files?

  • Change Open File Work and Home Directories

    Is it possible to change the Open File Work and Home Directories (buttons on the left)?

    FWIW, I'd love to see this too. It'd be quite useful in other products as well.. ;)
    It is actually possible to programmatically extend the list of shortcuts in this dialog, so someone could in theory write an extension for SQL Developer to add support for user customizable buttons. Seems like a nice project if someone is bored ;)
    The API in question is:
    oracle.ide.dialogs.DialogUtil.registerShortcutButton( Icon, String, URL )
    Thanks,
    Brian
    (updated to point to the correct API...)

  • Opening external files in Director Projector... *URGENT*

    Hi, this should be really basic, but I just can't work it
    out...
    I want to open external files (but kept in the same root
    directory as my projector file) from a mouse/button click in my
    projector.
    I don't know any Lingo, but I am assuming it should be pretty
    straight forward... I need to launch a .pdf, a .html file (I can do
    this with the goto URL behaviour actually), and a .exe.
    Is there not a preset behaviour for this somewhere?
    Your help is much appreciated.

    > Are we sure that I am doing this right?
    What about the following - copy it into your cast as a
    behavior and
    attach it to all your buttons, one at a time, choosing the
    file you want
    to open when you click each button. You might need to remove
    previous
    code attempts from your buttons. Be sure to include FileXtra4
    with your
    projector - (Menu:) Modify -> Movie -> Xtras..., click
    Add, locate the
    xtra and add it to the list displayed; or simply place it in
    a folder
    named 'Xtras' alongside your projector
    property myFile
    on getPropertyDescriptionList
    fx4 = xtra("FileXtra4").new()
    tRange = fx4.fx_FolderToList( _movie.path )
    fx4 = VOID
    return [#myFile: [#comment: "File to open:", #format:
    #string,
    #default: tRange[1], #range: tRange]]
    end
    on mouseUp me
    tDelimiter = the itemDelimiter
    the itemDelimiter = "."
    tType = the last item of myFile
    the itemDelimiter = tDelimiter
    fx4 = xtra("FileXtra4").new()
    if tType = "exe" then
    OK = fx4.fx_FileRunApp( _movie.path & myFile )
    else
    OK = fx4.fx_FileOpenDocument( _movie.path & myFile )
    end if
    if ( OK <> 1 ) then
    alert "Error opening file:" && myFile
    &RETURN& fx4.fx_ErrorString()
    end if
    fx4 = VOID
    end

  • Vi error on nfs mount; E212: Can't open file for writing

    Hi all,
    I've setup a umask of 0 for testing on both NFS client (Centos 5.2) and NFS server (OSX 10.5.5 server).
    I can create files as one user and edit/save out as another user w/o issue when directly logged into the server via ARD.
    However, when I attempt the same from an NFS mount on a client machine, even as root I get the following error using vi;
    "file" E212: Can't open file for writing
    Looking at the system.log file on the server, I see;
    kernel[0]: add_fsevent: no name hard-link! dropping the event. (event 2 vp == 0xa5db510 (-UNKNOWN-FILE)).
    This baffles me. My umask is 0 meaning files I create and attempt to edit as other users are 777, but I cannot save out edits unless I do a wq! in vi. At that point, the owner of the file changes to whomever did the vi.
    This isn't just a vi issue as it happens using any editor, but I like to use vi.
    Any help is greatly appreciated. Hey, beer is on me!

    Hi all,
    Thanks for the replies
    I've narrowed it down to a Centos client issue.
    Everything works fine using other Linux based OS's as clients.
    Since we have such a huge investment in Centos, I must figure out a workaround. Apple support wasn't much help as usual however they were very nice.
    There usual response is "its unsupported".
    If Apple really wants to play in the enterprise of business space, they really need to change there philosophy. I mean telling me that I shouldn't mount home directories via NFS is completely rediculus.
    What am I supposed to use then, Samba of AFP? No, I don't think so. No offense to Microsoft but why would I use a Windows based file sharing protocol to mount network shares in a Nix env???

  • Finder throwing error -1401 when attempting to open files on mounted volume

    Alright, this is driving me nuts. At random, Finder will refuse to open files on a mounted volume on my server. It throws the error "The application can't be opened. -1401" and then "The operation can’t be completed. An unexpected error occurred (error code -1401)." back to back. It doesn't matter what the file type is, as far as I can tell (.jpg, .xlsx and .pdf are on there).
    From that point on, I can navigate those volumes to the point that I have navigated them since the volume was mounted at start up, but can't go any deeper into the directories or open anything. Finder also won't eject the volume. I can't open files from within applications, either.
    I have to reboot for it to work again.
    However, if I jump into Parallels I can open anything on the server. Even Acrobat files, which open in the Mac environment and not within the virtual machine.
    Does anyone have any insight to what might be causing this? I searched and can't find anything.
    Thanks,
    Brian

    Restart your computer with the Shift key held down,
    and then open the Startup Items folder inside the
    System Folder. Throw away all of the aliases you find
    in this folder and then empty the trash.
    To quit AppleWorks or another application when it
    won't respond, hold down the Option, Command, and Esc
    keys, and then click the Force Quit button. You
    should also use the Disk First Aid application in the
    Applications (Mac OS 9):Utilities folder to verify
    your hard disk, as something may have been damaged
    when you shut the machine down using that method.

  • Cannot open file, Photoshop is not compatible with this version of photoshop. 2 weeks

    This has been a problem for almost 2 weeks now. Cant save any work in photoshop, files are unretrievable once closed. I get the same error message. I spent all of last week online with Adobe Tech support, screen sharing conference etc, now iMac isnt working properly. AAARRFGGHH.
    Same prob on iMac and new Macbook pro
    Last week Adobe via screen share uninstalled and re-installed Photoshop, took a few hours and still nothing. I have lost many hours work here. Cant reach Adobe and I am really pissed off. Cant reach a human via the support emails they aren't working. I have asked to speak to a Programmer or Manager for help with this and I have received none!
    Latest message sent through to Support:
    OLd support file not opening.
    I cant open this one:
    1/26/11 Case #0182004961: Unable to open some photoshop documents.
    Open - Pending Adobe Response
    So we need to start a new way of communicating. I am really upset with Adobe, my Photoshop has been working improperly for almost 2 weeks now. Adobe accessed my computer last week and now MY COMPUTER is not working Properly. I NEED ALL OF THIS FIXED IMMEDIATELY PLEASE!!!!!!
    DO NOT withdraw this support topic. Please get a Manager to address this issue ASAP!!!!!!
    If anyone reading this can get me through to the right person I would appreciate it. Hopefully Adobe will make reparation for all the trouble caused and time lost!
    I should add that last night I tried to contact Adobe to see what the hold up was. I went and tried to open up the case file (No it had not been withdrawn and was still active), but it would not open. So, I started up a new support file with a whole new case number, I received an email this morning from Adobe saying that I would have to communicate with them through the original case #. Went to respond to this email today and the NEW case file had been withdrawn.
    Yes, I have read all the user forums on this stuff for months, NO I am not using any Anti Virus stuff, No I did not upgrade my Macs at the time of the prob appearing! Thanks

    Thanks so Much Charlie. Could you get someone from Tech Support to contact me via email with a return address. I really feel this needs to be escalated to Management now. Thanks

  • I have an external hard drive that was formatted by a PC and has files and directories etc. I want to format it and use it on my IMAC for backup but I can't seem to write to it nor can I delete current content. How do I initialize it for use with the MAC?

    I have an external hard drive that was formatted by a PC and has files and directories copied to it etc. I want to use it on my IMAC for backup. I see it on my my IMAC . I can open files etc.  But I can't seem to write to it nor can I delete current content. I don't care if I lose current content. How do I initialize it for use with the MAC?

    You can't write to it because it's formatted as NTFS which OS X will read but not write to. If you want to continue using the drive with both a PC and OS X you will need to download and install NTFS-3G so you can then write to it from your Mac. You can get NTFS-3G at:
    http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/24481/ntfs-3g
    If you want to use the drive exclusively with your Mac then move the data off it and reformat it in Disk Utility (Applications - Utilities - Disk Utilities) as Mac OS Extended (Journaled.)

    thank you
    AP

    sorry i can explain well the issue
    for our experience
    LDAP access causes the opening a lot of file descriptor?
    The LDAP proves ist still running and is still opening files. Meanwhile, because of the SSL communication with application, some files are Created in the CACERTS directory
    Suddenly, the OS has reached its file descriptor limit: an error message �Too many open files� appears
    Question: the situation is : that files cannot be closed in the CACERT director, because the OS has not more file descriptors (because the ldap process has used all file descriptors to the limit)?
    is related on LDAP this problem?
    thank you for your kindness guys!

  • Folder appears in Windows Explorer, but not in the Open File dialog

    Hello,
    I hope this is the right place to post this. If not, please let me know where is.
    A friend just showed me a weird problem he is having with his computer. He is using Windows 7 pro, and has a folder under My Documents, in which he keeps his work files. He emails these files using Gmail, which he accesses via Internet Explorer.
    All worked fine until a few days ago, when he noticed that when he clicked the link in Gmail to attach a file, his folder wasn't listed in the Open File dialog. He looked in Windows Explorer, and could see the folder OK. I tried opening Word and using the Open
    File dialog there, and the folder wasn't visible.
    If he clicks in the address bar, and adds the folder name to the path, it opens the folder, but shows it as empty. I actually has two subfolders. If he adds the name of a subfolder, then the Open File dialog shows the files in that folder.
    I checked the permissions on the folder, and couldn't see anything odd. What I don't understand is how the folder can be visible in Windows Explorer, and not in the Open File dialog.
    Anyone any ideas? Thanks

    If you're really bored, you could read about my experiments with .NET and some of Microsoft's newer technologies at
    http://dotnetwhatnot.pixata.co.uk/

    I can confirm - I'm having the exact same problem.
    When I try to lookup or save a file from an IE file dialog some folders do not show up. I can type the folder name into the directory field and it then goes there, but this assumes you know the directory name and it's a PITB.
    Firefox can browse to the directory directly.
    It would be interesting if anyone else found a fix for this - I'll post here again if I find out more somewhere else, but there are not too many threads out there as far as I have found for now.
    Found a solution over at answers at Microsoft dot com. (can post links here yet - will update once I can)
    In short: There's a fast fix for this issue by resetting a hidden flag that IE sets for some folders. I believe this part of the "protected mode" feature, though I can't confirm and also have no idea how this would protect me from any intruders,
    if only (unimportant) subfolders are protected ...
    Anyway - if you know the name of the missing folder (e.g. from browsing the directories form windows explorer): in the parent directory that has the folder missing do a Search (in box at top right) for the missing
    folder name. In my case the hidden folder shows up in the search - now right click -> Properties -> clear hidden flag. Note: this "hidden" flag is independent of the flags set in windows explorer - that's why you have trouble going there with IE and not
    the file explorer from the desktop.

  • Using VCD file in Director

    Hello, all.
    I have this project intended to be a hybrid cd - it can be
    played as a VCD if inserted ina DVD player, and if used in a
    computer it is played as a Director projector. The issue is that
    the video file is too big, so I can´t have it duplicated, so
    I'm trying to make director read the DAT file used in the VCD. It's
    a kind of mpeg, but I can't get it right. I know it can be
    acomplished because i've seen it.
    Can anyone help me, please? Thanks in advance.

    you can create an application with VB to launch a media
    player that plays a specific DAT file.
    then launch that exe file from director with :
    _player.open("","you VB exe file path")
    or
    you can just launch a default media player (maybe, windows
    media player) from director with :
    _player.open("your DAT file path","media player of your
    choice path")
    but, this is not recommended as we don't know what media
    player applications the customer had in his/her computer.
    Try the first step. That should work.

  • File Chooser is displaying names of the Files and Directories as boxes

    Hi All,
    Actually i am working on an application in which i have the requirement to internationalize the File Chooser in All Operating Systems. The application is working properly for all languages on MAC OS, but not working properly for the language Telugu on both the Ubuntu and Windows OS.

    So please provide your suggestions to me.
    Thanks in Advance

    I don´t understand it, How I could solve?? Please help me!
    Thank you.

    What steps did you use to add the Replicat?  Can you list those commands out.
    Also, does this file actually exist on the server where Replicat is running: C:\app\Oracle\product\gg\dirdat\tr000000
