I am currently working on a website and I have a problem. I
want to do a request to the backend before the application loads
and wait for it to complete. This is a query to get some settings
needed in de flex application.
But when I add the code for instance in the initialize
property of the main application. The event is fired. But It will
not wait for it to complete. The rest of the application will load.
But not with the correct loaded settings. The settings
ArrayCollection will get filled, but after the rest of the
application is loaded completely.
Is there anyway to do this , am I missing something ?
Remember that Flex works asyncronously so it doesn't wait for
an event to complete in order to move to the next one. I think you
could add a viewstack with a progress bar to indicate that you're
loading something and then in the result handler you could change
the viewstack to reveal your app with the data loaded.
