LoomTextAsset

public class
loom.LoomTextAsset

Description

An asset loaded via Loom's asset system.

Loom's asset system supports live reload. LoomTextAsset is designed to make you write your code so that you automatically support live reload.

To use LoomTextAsset, do the following:

var myAsset = LoomTextAsset.create("assets/myasset.txt");
myAsset.updateDelegate += function(path:String, contents:String):void { trace("Loaded " + path + "!")};
myAsset.load();

The handler on updateDelegate will be called when the asset is loaded via load(), as well as any time the asset is updated via live reload.
