Flex 3 Custom Preloader

Before to start I’ll put a link to my post with download and sample of a custom preloader you can use in your applications: http://www.stoimen.com/blog/2009/02/25/flex-3-custom-preloader-download/

If there’s a problem with making a custom flex 3 preloader, there is the solution. The problem after that is to place it at the center of the stage. But there is a solution again. Just because the Application is not available yet, doesn’t mean that the preloader cannot be positioned correctly.

Just don’t forget to use the stage.width and height properties, as shown in the example, and use that after added on stage event is fired.

Look carefully at the example!

I recently posted a sample with free donwload of custom datechooser. The sample can be found on:

  1. I will very soon. When I developed the custom preloader I met such problems as centering the content and aligning it right, so I’d be happy to share my solution.

  2. I did exactly as written in that article and still cannot manage this preloader to work? Can you help a bit?


  3. На таких громких заголовках и подобной шумихе можно делать и не такие успехи 🙂
