getting information out of a flash object

10 posts in this topic

is it possible to get the text in a flash object?

normal functions dont work for it. Normally such text needs ocr, but is is possible to extract this information?

My guess is no.

If the text is selectable, it could be copied to clipboard. Might require some mouse+keyboard magic.

The text can be anywhere. In database, text file or the flash app itself etc.

Only if you have access to the flash application source, which is almost never possible.

You could also use Sothink SWF Catcher & Sothink SWF Decompiler to have access to the source :) (but it doesn't work 100% on all cases ...)

Hmmm it is really hard but you may try to make screenshot of the text data in flash, and next use some binay (dll function) to recogniese the text on picture. But this is sometimes buggy when the text style is diffrent than normal or it contains some other graphics.
