    Flex application unloading

    rogierdoekes Level 1
      I would like to be able to handle an event which is fired when my Flex 1.5 Application unloads. We need this to do some cleanup work essential to our application.

      I tried to use the unload event on the mx:Application object , but that does not seem to respond very well.

      How would I create or use an event which gets fired when the application unloads (as our mxml application runs in a popup window, this event has to be fired when the user closes the window)

      Thanks for any help,

          Remember that Flex runs in the Flash Player in the browser. The main app never really unloads.

          I think you will need to use javascript and browser events to do what you want. Is your "clean-up" work inside the Flex app? If so, and you can catch an early enough event ( "onBeforeUnload" ?) from the browser, you can use myPlayerInstance.setVariable() to invoke some action in the Flex app.
