I just wanted everyone to know about this awesome class i found. I needed to load some Flash 8 movies into my flex application and control the play head dependent on labels inside the flash movie.
This was proving really hard until i found that class now it is a piece of cake!
Thanks whoever you are maruthi2000

The crieteria for the regular expressions are to check Capital letters, standard letters, numbers and none word characters to build up the quality level Right click to view source
