help writing and deleting archives

April 25, 2007 | 12:04 am

hi, i need to delete a specific document(.mov) but i don’t know what is the message and the right sintaxis for that

i need as well to record a movie, i’ve created the camera and i put it to record, but i can’t manage to save it always in the same place with the same name, because i don’t want the program to ask me any time where do i want to save it… i’ve used a message box with WRITE written on it but i’m not sure about how to say to the program that i want it always to be named and saved in the same way (.mov)

i’ll really appreciate if somebody could help me on this because i’m in a little rush

thank you

Check the help file for jit.qt.record.

If you were saving to a jpeg, you’d use a message box with something like:

write the_movie_name.jpg 1. jpeg

If you want it in a specific path, the syntax will depend on your platform, but you can manage that with the conformpath object.
