I have an application which calls .NET service for saving large amount of data. While this is being done, I would like chat module in the right frame of the screen to be active. The user should be able to chat while data is being saved (screen blocking should not occur). Can someone tell me which version of flash builder/flex support multitasking/
multithreading? Also, can you provide me with an example for the same?
Flex does not officially support the ActionScript Workers recently made available in the lastest runtimes.
But all network calls are asynchronous and will not block. If you are blocking preparing the chunk of data to be saved then you can try Workers or try pseudo-threading.
