How would I go about showing a "loading data" for a
webservice? showBusyCursor is not enough... infact I would like to
make the initial webservice call part of the application load.. in
other words don't start the app unless the webservice is done..
Is there a way to do this either or?
Or do i have to do a "loader "manually?
You first need to create your custom preloader and instead of
dispatching event complete event... call a function using
mx.core.Application.application.aFunct() that instantiate a web
service object and inside of loadComplete event call a function
that sets the a variable 'state' or watever you want to name is and
set it to 1 or and in the custom preloader class check to see if
this value is 1 if it is 1 then yes the web service is loaded so..
dispatch 'complete' event.
