I am using Flash Builder 4.6 to create flex 4 and ActionScript 3.0. This process creates a number of files for one webpage.
When my firefox browser first loads a page that has a flash upload form I created, the page shows a load bar for 30 seconds before the page displays the form. Every visit to the page after that displays the form near instantly.
When I visit other websites for the first time that have flash content, the pages don't take 30 seconds.
What could be the cause of this? Thanks.
By network, correct me if I misunderstand you, I think you are refering to the server of my host provider. It is the cheapest. It is a shared server. I don't know how fast. Sometime this year I plan to upgrade to a more midgrade server.
Maybe some of these files listed above can be optimized. My flex/flash page is just an upload image form. It has upload and cancel buttons component, some text in a textarea component, and a progress bar component. I don't think my actionscript code can or needs to be optimized further.
I was reading through one of my flex books and discovered something called export release build. I have been only been pressing the run button all this time and uploading those files. The release build is an optimized version of files. The file sizes are little smaller. My web page came up in about 10 seconds or less. I will have to do more testing, but I think that may have been the cause.
Thanks for your help Flex harUI.
