Socket Connectivity at Startup

Jul 27, 2009 5:43 AM

I'm having trouble with the socket connector in my AIR 1.5 HTML/JavaScript implementation.  It seems that the application never detects as being online at startup.

 

        socketMonitor = new air.SocketMonitor('www.mydomain.com', 80);
        socketMonitor.start();

 

Then, when the document is ready (jQuery $(document).ready), I run the following code.

 

   if (socketMonitor.available) {
        myfunction();
    }

 

At launch, my function never triggers.  If I put that same code in a separate function and run it on a click event after the application loads, then it triggers just fine and finds socketMonitor.available to be true.

 

It seems that it is taking a while for the socket monitor to recognize that it is online.  Why would that be?  Any suggestions for how to know AT STARTUP if the application is online or not?
