Hi,

I have a code that interacts with a webservice.

some requests may take up to 45 seconds to return, the problem is sendAndLoad gives up much sooner.

how can I set the timeout for sendAndLoad ?






thanks
request_obj.sendAndLoad

You cannot set the timeout value in ActionScript...  Not sure what the solution is thought...

would something like this work... ?

// import the class:
import com.gskinner.net.LoadVars2;
myLV:LoadVars2 = new LoadVars2();
// subscribe to its data event:
myLV.addEventListener("data",this);
 
// add some data to send:
myLV.username = "frank";
myLV.password = "cheesepenguin";
 
// set the timeout period to 10 seconds (default is 7s):
myLV.timeout = 10000;
 
// this should timeout after 10 seconds:
myLV.sendAndLoad("http://1.1.1.1/noFile.php",myLV,"POST");
 
// function to handle the data event:
function data(p_evtObj:Object):Void {
   if (p_evtObj.src != undefined) {
      trace("Loaded successfully with source: "+p_evtObj.src);
    } else {
      trace("An error occurred while loading");
    }
}

this is very nice, but this allows me to set a timeout that is smaller than the default one set by the parent class LoadVars..

which means if I can't extent the default timeout set by the parent, I am still out of luck here....

as the default  timeout is too short...

wait... did you try to set is at a high number?

this is the code I put up

// set the timeout period to 10 seconds (default is 7s):
myLV.timeout = 10000;

no, becuase after about 15, flash gives up and returns with an error, while actual timeout of the server could be 45 seconds
