Hi all, I am trying to drill deeper into Flash player IOError handling in AS3, in order to distinguish different types of load failures when loading child swfs and data into a parent swf. For instance, I need to know, and react differently to, loads errors where the file is missing altogether vs. loads where severe network congestion mid-load interrupts a load after a part of the file has been received.
Can anyone offer some deeper information on exactly what initial condition(s) triggers an IOError event? Is it time-based (no bytes loaded in N ms), a reaction to a server response, something else? I've been googling and reading through Adobe docs all morning and haven't seen anything deeper than the often repeated, but largely unhelpful Adobe line: "FlashR Player dispatches an IOErrorEvent object when an error causes a send or load operation to fail." I'm looking for more depth than that. A definition of "error" and the criteria used to decide the load was a failure, for instance, would be a good start. Any info. or directions to look would be greatly appreciated.
