I'm quite new with Adobe Flex and Adobe Air. I start learning Flex a couple of days ago and I'm seriously loving the possibility's with it!
I've made an application to track some poker score's, I get the information from an .php wich I convertet to an XML. And download it with an httpService. The update goes in the application tag with creationComplete(xml.send()).
Now i got 2 questions:
- When the application is getting the information from the list.php and putting it into the datagrid, it takes a while to load the information. Is there a way to get a preloader, an status bar or a circle that tells you that the application is getting the information?
- I work on the application almost every day, fixing bugs etc. Now what I want is when there is a new build, i put the .air on my server and when someone opens the application he has installed, he get's an pop up that there is a new update available and when he presses the OK button or Upgrade button he installs the build.
I hope someone could help!
when i need to cut down on xml parsing time , i send the request in the preinitialize phase of the app.
What do you mean? And how do you do it?
