Creating an activity indicator
Create an activity indicator to display when your application is busy performing a task.
Construct the activity indicator variable in the root of your class
var myActivity:ActivityIndicator = new ActivityIndicator(); //placing this at the class root allows other //application elements to reference it
Initialize your indicator's attributes
//set location myActivity.x = 50; myActivity.y = 50; //set size myActivity.width = 150; //OPTIONAL: set animation speed between 0 and 1 myActivity.animationSpeed = 0.1; //add to stage this.addChild(myActivity); //turn on animation myActivity.animate(true);
You must include the following class in your project:
When you create an activity indicator, you declare the ActivityIndicator variable and set its properties to whatever values your application requires. To display the indicator, add it to the stage with addChild(). The animation can be turned on and off anywhere the object is accessible by using the animate function, while the speed can be changed with the animationSpeed property.
