Subject Re: FileReference implementation

No. You can read a file using the File APIs. In JS, you can get a Blob and ArrayBuffer The
rough equivalent to ByteArray in Royale is BinaryData which wraps ArrayBuffer and deals with
the views and you can get that from a file.

We’ve done work on abstracting those APIs. Yishay did the work on that, so he’ll have
the best answer.
