I see lots of comments about how to set the script Timeout to greater then 15 seconds.
They say to go to fla and hit ctrl shift f12. I can not even figure out what fla is. I have searched and searched.
I know I do not have an infinite loop, the app runs when the data is smaller. This only started happening when I moved to using something like 40k records. So, with that said, would someone please explain to me how to exend the script timeout like I was a forth grader?
Perhaps you should be looking in splitting the loop asynchronous.
Increasing the timeout is a temporary and unreliable fix.
That’s for Flash, not Flex. For Flex, you can use the scriptTimeLimit property on the Application tag, but it already defaults to the maximum (60 seconds).
The FlashPlayer stops running code after that time limit, even if your code would have finished a fraction of a second later. This means that heavy processing may not complete. You may have to use pseudo-threading to guarantee completion. See: http://blogs.adobe.com/aharui/2008/01/threads_in_actionscript_3.html
Don’t forget that, even though it might take 30 seconds on your computer, if the user’s computer is slower or busy that 30 seconds can grow enough to time out.
