Thread: Using the new save() in the file reference class

  1. #1

    Using the new save() in the file reference class

    For a project I am working on, I allow users to drag stuff around the stage and then let them save it as JPEG. I have used the new save method from player 10. This is my code so far.

    var fr:FileReference;

    test_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, showPic);

    function showPic(event:MouseEvent):void {

    var bmd:BitmapData=new BitmapData(970,570);
    import com.adobe.images.JPGEncoder;

    var jpgEncoder:JPGEncoder=new JPGEncoder(85);
    var jpgStream:ByteArray=jpgEncoder.encode(bmd);;


    But when I click on the button, I get the following erro

    TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.
    at homev1_fla::MainTimeline/showPic()

    What am I doing wrong, please help!
