Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    check loader content

    how can I distinguish between image and swf?

    it works for image, but how can i ask if content is swf?

    private function completeHandler(e:Event):void {
                if(e.target.content is Bitmap){
                    _image = (Bitmap)(e.target.content);

    The LoaderInfo has a property named "contentType"

    Here is some sample usage:
       case "application/x-shockwave-flash":
          trace("Loaded content is a SWF.");
       case "image/jpeg":
       case "image/gif":
       case "image/png":
          trace("Loaded content is an image");
    I believe someone on the boards recently found a way that reads the first 3 bytes of the file in order to find out the type.
