Hello  Flashers ,

Have you ever come across the dreaded “<error>” ?  If you have read on, if you haven’t you might wanna take a look at this.

Well  it started out like this………i was working on dynamic flash slideshow gallery. I was loading external images and paths were saved on xml file. Slideshow was working and running smoothly until i closed my browser window and received “Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. text=Error #2036: Load Never Completed.”.  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. When i closed my browser window i got this exception error on a window, here is the screenshot:

This error only comes when image was being loaded(preloader is shown during loading) and during that loading period if i close my browser exception error was being thrown. I knew the reason behind the error but didn’t knew the solution to handle it.

I didn’t knew what to. What was i supposed to do when error was coming on closing the browser ? I thought it was a browser issue. But there are lots of this kind of application out there and they doesn’t have this issue. So i have to do something about this “memory leak” thingy. So i found the solution for this and solution is to add the error handler to loader:

image_loader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(IOErrorEvent.IO_ERROR, ioErrorHandler);

private function ioErrorHandler(event:IOErrorEvent):void
//do your stuff

I hope it helped to those who faced same problem like me.
