An object dispatches a SecurityErrorEvent object to report the occurrence of a security error. Security errors reported through this class are generally from asynchronous operations, such as loading data, in which security violations may not manifest immediately. Your event listener can access the object's text property to determine what operation was attempted and any URLs that were involved. If there are no event listeners, the debugger version of Flash Player or the AIR Debug Launcher (ADL) application automatically displays an error message that contains the contents of the text property. There is one type of security error event: SecurityErrorEvent.SECURITY_ERROR.

Security error events are the final events dispatched for any target object. This means that any other events, including generic error events, are not dispatched for a target object that experiences a security error.

Constructor

new (type:String, bubbles:Bool = false, cancelable:Bool = false, text:String = "", id:Int = 0)

Creates an Event object that contains information about security error events. Event objects are passed as parameters to event listeners.

Parameters:

type

The type of the event. Event listeners can access this information through the inherited type property. There is only one type of error event: SecurityErrorEvent.SECURITY_ERROR.

bubbles

Determines whether the Event object participates in the bubbling stage of the event flow. Event listeners can access this information through the inherited bubbles property.

cancelable

Determines whether the Event object can be canceled. Event listeners can access this information through the inherited cancelable property.

text

Text to be displayed as an error message. Event listeners can access this information through the text property.

id

A reference number to associate with the specific error.

Methods

Static variables

staticinline read onlySECURITY_ERROR:String = "securityError"

The SecurityErrorEvent.SECURITY_ERROR constant defines the value of the type property of a securityError event object.

This event has the following properties:

Inherited Variables

Defined by ErrorEvent

read onlyerrorID:Int

Contains the reference number associated with the specific error. For a custom ErrorEvent object, this number is the value from the id parameter supplied in the constructor.

Defined by TextEvent

text:String

For a textInput event, the character or sequence of characters entered by the user. For a link event, the text of the event attribute of the href attribute of the <a> tag.

Defined by Event

read onlybubbles:Bool

Indicates whether an event is a bubbling event. If the event can bubble, this value is true; otherwise it is false.

When an event occurs, it moves through the three phases of the event flow: the capture phase, which flows from the top of the display list hierarchy to the node just before the target node; the target phase, which comprises the target node; and the bubbling phase, which flows from the node subsequent to the target node back up the display list hierarchy.

Some events, such as the activate and unload events, do not have a bubbling phase. The bubbles property has a value of false for events that do not have a bubbling phase.

read onlycancelable:Bool

Indicates whether the behavior associated with the event can be prevented. If the behavior can be canceled, this value is true; otherwise it is false.

read onlycurrentTarget:Any

The object that is actively processing the Event object with an event listener. For example, if a user clicks an OK button, the current target could be the node containing that button or one of its ancestors that has registered an event listener for that event.

read onlyeventPhase:EventPhase

The current phase in the event flow. This property can contain the following numeric values:

  • The capture phase(EventPhase.CAPTURING_PHASE).
  • The target phase(EventPhase.AT_TARGET).
  • The bubbling phase(EventPhase.BUBBLING_PHASE).

read onlytarget:Any

The event target. This property contains the target node. For example, if a user clicks an OK button, the target node is the display list node containing that button.

read onlytype:String

The type of event. The type is case-sensitive.

isDefaultPrevented ():Bool

Checks whether the preventDefault() method has been called on the event. If the preventDefault() method has been called, returns true; otherwise, returns false.

Returns:

If preventDefault() has been called, returns true; otherwise, returns false.

preventDefault ():Void

Cancels an event's default behavior if that behavior can be canceled. Many events have associated behaviors that are carried out by default. For example, if a user types a character into a text field, the default behavior is that the character is displayed in the text field. Because the TextEvent.TEXT_INPUT event's default behavior can be canceled, you can use the preventDefault() method to prevent the character from appearing. An example of a behavior that is not cancelable is the default behavior associated with the Event.REMOVED event, which is generated whenever Flash Player is about to remove a display object from the display list. The default behavior (removing the element) cannot be canceled, so the preventDefault() method has no effect on this default behavior. You can use the Event.cancelable property to check whether you can prevent the default behavior associated with a particular event. If the value of Event.cancelable is true, then preventDefault() can be used to cancel the event; otherwise, preventDefault() has no effect.

stopImmediatePropagation ():Void

Prevents processing of any event listeners in the current node and any subsequent nodes in the event flow. This method takes effect immediately, and it affects event listeners in the current node. In contrast, the stopPropagation() method doesn't take effect until all the event listeners in the current node finish processing.

Note: This method does not cancel the behavior associated with this event; see preventDefault() for that functionality.

stopPropagation ():Void

Prevents processing of any event listeners in nodes subsequent to the current node in the event flow. This method does not affect any event listeners in the current node(currentTarget). In contrast, the stopImmediatePropagation() method prevents processing of event listeners in both the current node and subsequent nodes. Additional calls to this method have no effect. This method can be called in any phase of the event flow.

Note: This method does not cancel the behavior associated with this event; see preventDefault() for that functionality.
