I'm trying to create a custom component in my flex app that
would mimic a progress bar. I'm planning to use it to show progress
being made on a survey - eg: if the user answers half the questions
the progress bar will show half full.
I'm new to Flex and not aware of an easy way to do this
without embedding a custom swf. If I go that route is there a way
to pass the data from flex to my swf to update the progress? Or is
there a way to accomplish this directly in Flex?
Flex has a progress bar built-in, you could use that, or any

or use something like Degrafa. You can also embed an AS3 SWF using
SWFLoader, or as an SWC from Flash. This probably in the top 5 most
common questions on this board, so you should find something pretty
