Yes ! Thank you Astro !

As you may have seen, Adobe has just released a beta version of the Flash Player 10 (Astro). This new player is bringing a new feature which is gonna be awesome for the AlivePDF people :)

File Reference runtime access — Bring users into the experience by letting them load files into your RIA. You can work with the content at runtime and even save it back when you are done through the browse dialog box. Files can be accessed as a byteArray or text using a convenient API in ActionScript without round-tripping to the server. You no longer have to know a server language or have access to a server to load or save files at runtime.

This means no server side trick to save files you have generated within the player. Same for loaded files, you will be able to select a file from you disk and inject it into the player and access it’s binary stream.

This results in less bandwidth usage and makes easier a lot of things, especially with AlivePDF.

No more server side script (ASP, PHP, .NET, etc), we will be able to generate the PDF and directly save it on the hard disk with NO server side script involved :) This will make AlivePDF applications development even easier.

Now, imagine how easy it will be to embed hi-res images, fonts, etc with AlivePDF. The file is selected on the disk and directly embedded in the PDF :)

I tell you, Flash Player 10 will be THE player for AlivePDF !

I will post some AlivePDF demos using this feature in the following days.

    That awesome! Do you have a version of the server side file in ASP? I need it for the meantime, until Astro is rolled out. I’ll really appreciate it.

    I actually have a create.php question. I would like to save the pdf on the server. As I am not great at PHP, could someone recommend a php script that will allow me to take the uploaded bytearray to the php and then save that to the server?

    Hi Andy,

    If you download the latest release of AlivePDF (, you will find a create.cs script for ASP.NET.

    let me know :)

    Hi I’m having problems, my server doesn’t read .java and the .cs is only allowed when the call is made from a aspx, and it is a coldfusion server. do you have something on that language, It seems that I’m unable to use your due on my limitations, also, there is a way to make the pdf without the server side script involved at all?

    I am using Flash CS4 and im really an AS2 programmer, so I am having problems adapting this code to work with the example .fla in the release currently available. Is there an example .fla which is using the new abilities of FP10 to skip out the server side stuff as this would be the solution to all my problems!

    I’ve seen that some people here came across the same problem as me. I’ve had issues with uploading the pdf to a server using PHP, but I’ve found the solution now. I’ll put it here, so that everyone with my problem can see a way to do it.

    You need to use the method form AlivePDF in Flex for this script to work.

    Also, I’d like to know if there’s a way to do this and to prevent the window that opens after the pdf is saved to the server, since in my case I absolutely don’T need that window. I’ll try and find another way else I’ll stick to my script

    hi there,

    I have a php question :

    does anyone know a trick to avoid using http raw post data or php://input?

    I’m not a php genious, anyway I tried (in vain) sending base64 encoded data and base64 decoding in php, didn’t work, sending bytearray and echoing it into a file.. not a good idea… I just couldn’t find a way to generate the pdf file

    if somebody can help me it’d be just great ;)

    I am using the create.php to allow the user to view (preview) the generated pdf. Is there a better way to do this from a non-air app?

    Yes, if you compile your Flex web project (not AIR) to support Flash Player 10 as a minimal version, then you can use function to store your PDF or JPEG/PNG to local desktop. And you won’t need create.php anymore.

    Can someone pls tell me how do i deploy create.php in my server?
    I have a J2EE engine where I deploy my flex application. I have put create.php file inside “scripts” folder of my flex project. After deploying it to the server, I get a link:

    Why would you put an end to the create.php script? I know that a lot of people would like to save the PDF to the server versus having the client save it to their desktop.
    This project seems to be missing info in all of the documentation as well. There are no examples showing where the documentation specifies that there should be an example…?
    Also I know I’m not alone on this one but can you provide a php and/or asp script to save the pdf to the server? Not everyone is a php or asp guru.
    This is a great project but needs a little work in the tutorial and documentation.

    ive set alivepdf up and it works great in some circumstances, the problem I’m having is running it in different server environments with different versions of php etc. I’m linking to :

    but I could really do with having this file stored locally so I can test it on different servers. Has anyone got this file? If so please send it to me simon’at’

    Or if you know where I can get a version online please send me the link, thanks in advance, Simon
