Just use LoadMovie. That works with images. If your images are stored in a database, use a server-side page to pass the image:


this.createEmptyMovieClip("myImage",4);
myImage.loadMovie("myImagePage.cfm?id=" + someId);


In CF:


<cfparam name="url.id" default="0" type="number">
<CFTRY>
<CFQUERY NAME="rs" DATASOURCE="myimages">
SELECT imagename FROM mytable WHERE imageid = #url.id#
</CFQUERY>
<!--- ///////////////////////////////////////////////////// --->
<!--- // Force the browser to download the image file. //--->
<!--- ///////////////////////////////////////////////////// --->
<CFCONTENT TYPE="image/gif" FILE="d:\webroot\images\#rs.imagename#"><cfabort>
<CFCATCH>
<CFCONTENT TYPE="image/gif" FILE="d:\webroot\images\blank.gif"><cfabort>
</CFCATCH>
</CFTRY>

    OMG... before replying why don't you READ what is written above... I will repeat only one sentence:
    "You CANNOT send images/movies/sound via Flash Remoting!"

    So your loadMovie thing does NOT make any sense!

    P.S. I didn't think there can be something worse than VB ... until I saw the first piece of CF "code" :)))
