I'm rather green to the whole Flex world, so please be
gentle. It's a distinct possibility that I'm overlooking something
I have a client that uses a graphical icon to represent its
connectivity to my Java server over an XMLSocket. When the client
reconnects the expected behavior is that this icon will fade away,
and then fade back in.
Under most circumstances this image behaves as expected: it
fades to visibility when I log in, and fades out when I disconnect.
The problem I run into is when I reconnect (which sets the bound
value to false and then back before the transition has completed,
the image will remain invisible.
My instinct tells me that it's getting set to false which
begins the transition and then being set back to true before the
transition has expired. Rather than queuing up the next transition
it seems to just skip it.
Is there a way to either interrupt the transition if the
binding changes during the transition, or even better, to queue it
up so that when it's done the transition it will then begin the
next transition if the state of the image doesn't accurately
reflect the current bound value?
