I have my model, which loads external XML. The application then parses the XML and formats it into individual objects and adds them to the stage. Needless to say, this slows my application. How would I use a loader in my application? It should tell the user the loading progress while all that stuff is happening (2-5 seconds).
Thanks for your thoughts.
You mean a progress bar? You can't unless you break the parsing up into frames. See pseudo-threading article on my blog
