 Using a V12 Database in a Shockwave movie
INM V12 Database for Director Windows, Macintosh General Database and Table use 3.x Regular


If the V12 database must stay on the net or must be shared by multiple users, use V12 Database , Online Edition.

If the V12 database is on the client's computer, the Shockwave movie must know its full pathname in order to open it and use it.


Accessing a local V12 Database file from a Shockwave movie is very much the same as accessing it from a projector. However, for security purposes, "The moviePath" returns an empty string in Shockwave. Therefore, the V12 Databse file's full path name must be known upon the creation of the Xtra instance.

View the Lingo script that downloads the V12 Database file in the NetCat sample for an illustration.
