In a previous example, “Using the ImageSnapshot class to capture images as JPEGs or PNGs in Flex 3”, we saw how you could convert an item on the display list into a base64 encoded string.
The following example shows how you can take a base64 encoded string and load it into a Flex Image control using the
toByteArray() methods in the mx.utils.Base64Decoder class, and the
load() method in the mx.controls.Image class.
