Delete a SharedObject

Having problems removing SharedObjects from the users local computer? here are two easy to use methods that take the hassle out of clearing them permanently…

To delete a SharedObject from the local computer, you must firstly delete all of the properties contained inside the data object of the SharedObject instance and then you must flush the SharedObject instance, here are the methods that will do that for you.

Inherited Method:

SharedObject.prototype.delete=function(){
    for(var i in this.data){
        delete this.data[i]
    }
    this.flush()
}

Usage:

so=SharedObject.getLocal('fg');

so.data.prop1='blah blah'; //add property

so.data.prop2='blah blah 2'; //add another property

so.flush() //now saved to a local .sol files

so.delete() //now delete them all again

Static Method:

SharedObject.delete=function(name){
    var so=SharedObject.getLocal(name)
    for(var i in so.data){
        delete so.data[i]
    }
    so.flush()
}

Usage:

so=SharedObject.getLocal('fg');

so.data.prop1='blah blah'; //add property

so.data.prop2='blah blah 2'; //add another property

so.flush() //now saved to a local .sol files

SharedObject.delete('fg'); //delete them all again

Take your pick, whichever you find to be the most useful.
