I am new to flex and have a question about the built in preloader.
I am creating a spark/mx app, and using external SWZ files so the main file is small in size.
The issue I have is that the preloader bar does not appear until after the SWZ files have loaded. One of the SWZ files is over 600k so not having something showing while it is loading leaves the user not knowing if anything is happening.
So I am wondering if there is a way to make the preloader show before the swz files start to install?
I know once the swz files are installed, it never has to happen again, but I would like to provide some sort of indication to the user that something is happening while it loads the 600+k files
ANy help would be greatly appreciated.
I think what you are seeing is a bug in Flex 4 that's been fixed in Flex Hero.
Thanks for that info
Is there any way of clearing out SWZ files from flash player (mac) so I can view the loading as a first time user again?
