    progressBar complete event never occurs!

    leotemp Level 1
      OK i am including the event packages and am adding the event listener but it doesnt activate the listener function, I can watch the progress bar work but it doesnt trigger the function, If i put the complete="{LoadComplete}" event in the progressBar tag it works fine, whats the deal?

      I have tried:
      NameOfProgressBar.addEventListener("complete", loadComplete);
      And I have tried:
      NameOfProgressBar.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, loadComplete);

      Neither trigger the "loadComplete" function.. ARRRRGGGHH!

          I'm sorry to bug you with a non-technical discussion, but I am a recruiter in San Diego. My client is in need of 3 Senior Flex Developers for their project. I have had an extremely rough time finding someone for this position. Would you be interested in this position, or do you know of anyone that might be? We do pay referral fees. This position may be open to telecommuting.

          Job Description:
          They are in the midst of a major re-architecting of their Corporate Management system utilizing many cutting edge technologies. As it relates to the position they are using Flex as their UI.

          This is either a contract, or a full-time position.

          Pay: Market Rate

          Thanks for your help!

            Can you post your exact code? I suspect this is just a syntax issue.

              OK, below is my code. There is allot of stuff going on that is dependant on data from an HTTPService, I can garuntee that works fine though as I can see the progress bar load the data and the image rolls to the new source when it completes, just no event listenere is triggered. While we are on the subject, I use an array to collect this value from my httpservice and I would really rather just pull it from the XMLlist but every time i tried to use e4x i couldnt find the data in the collection, if you feel up to helping me on that too I would be forever greatfull.
