Here was a neat trick I learnt today. You can set a ProgressBar control’s
labelPlacement property to “center” and have it appear within the progress bar itseslf. Pretty handy!
And just because that alone wasn’t really an interesting entry, I created a second progress bar which uses “polled” mode to determine how much of an FLV has loaded (it monitors the
bytesTotal properties of the UI object specified in the
source parameter, which in this case is the VideoDisplay control). Finally I tweaked the
label property to add the units (kilobytes) and set the
conversion property to 1024 to convert from bytes to kilobytes. Whew!
Full code after the jump.
