Flex Air Internet connectivity

Hi All,

I have a problem with internet connectivity i.e

1. My application is completely dependent on internet
2. On app start up i am calling some services...it works fine if initially internet connection is available
..a timer is set if internet connection is not available...
If on app start up internet conn is not available..&  there is a timer to recheck the internet...
if it is available after 5min or so.....
There is a problem in services that is i am not getting the result.....i.e the result event is not getting triggered..

Pls let me know where i am wrong..... Is there a problem in call web services using SOAP requests...but it works fine if net is available on app start up but...if available after some time this problem occurs,...
Below is the code snippet...

After the first 5 seconds, I dont see where you start the timer again, that may be the problem.

do you need

handleNetworkChange();

in

connectErrorHandler

Hi,
i checked by using the below code to restart the timer  but the problem persists..its not solved

private function connectErrorHandler(event:IOErrorEvent):void
                  {
                        networkAvailable = false;
                        handleNetworkChange();
                  }

is there any solution

Does the timer event fire?

Put a trace in each method and see if it fires.

Or put in a breakpoint and see whats going on in the debugger.

Yes the timer event is getting fired properly and also the init() method is called....

i.e...protected function init():void
            {
                  //Reference get xmlPath for buttons
                  getXmlPathLinkReferenceResult.token = xmlPathCommunicationPort.getXmlPathLink("references", "bare acts");
                  getXmlPathLinkReferenceResult.addEventListener(ResultEvent.RESULT,getBareActs);
                  
            }

But there is a problem in sending the request.....i am not able to call any service i.e send any request...
i checked with back end...all parameters are proper but i dont know where it is going wrong....
If there is net conn available it works all fine...
But if net connection is not available on app start up this problem ocurs...

Is there any problem in WSDL calling, because the request itself is not going...
