I think Flex 3 doesn't draw the progress bar until after all of the initial
objects have had validateProperties called.
Hi thanks for the reply,
Which objects are considered initial objects?
is there any workaround or solution to this?
after research I found out that apparantly it's not easy to make the preloader appear instantly (maybe impossible actually) although the DownloadProgressBar has a method that checks the ratiobetween timing and bytes downloaded (showDisplayForDownloading).
I assume that you can change this ratio or logically make the return value always true by extending the class. But this didn't work for me.
I did found another solution (actually kind of a hack but it works) where you set a timer.
This did make the preloader load instantly and smoothly.
What have you done exactly abavisg? Can you provide some code?
thanks in advance !
