FileReference onComplete bug on Mac OS Flash 8 Player & the fix

I overhead the conversation yesterday that the file upload on the mac was not working or rather the FileReference onComplete was not being fired. Today, Abdul Qabiz finally confirmed the bug. He also eventually found the fix for the same. The fix was to send an empty response from the server side upload script.

Read Abdul’s article for the details – Workaround: FileReference onComplete is not fired on Mac OS.

Note
The bug is supposedly fixed in Flash Player 9.

  1. I had the same issue - FileReference upload onComplete wasn't being triggered with Flash 9 on a Mac.

    For some reason Abdul Qabiz's fix didn't work - printing a string at the end of the upload.php script did tho...

    echo "&error=0";
