Enabling log Flex applicationEnable log for HTTPService in Flex application

When i started with Flex development, i was trying to make HTTP call to the portlet and i was not able to get any response so i did add this code to my Flex program to enable the log so that i can see what was going on with the HTTPService.

In order to use the Logging you will have to Enable trace in the Flex program


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!-- logging/ButtonLifeCycle.mxml -->
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"
creationComplete='initLogging()' >
<mx:Script><![CDATA[
import mx.controls.Alert;
import mx.logging.ILogger;
import mx.logging.Log;
import mx.logging.LogEventLevel;
import mx.logging.targets.TraceTarget;
import mx.rpc.events.FaultEvent;
import mx.rpc.events.ResultEvent;
import mx.rpc.http.HTTPService;

private function initLogging():void {
var logTarget:TraceTarget = new TraceTarget();
logTarget.filters=["mx.rpc.*","mx.messaging.*"];
logTarget.level = LogEventLevel.ALL;
Log.addTarget(logTarget);
}

private function traceClick():void {
useHttpService("http://www.google.com");
}

private var service:HTTPService
public function useHttpService(url:String):void {
service = new HTTPService();
service.url = url;
service.resultFormat = HTTPService.RESULT_FORMAT_TEXT;
service.method = "GET";
service.addEventListener("result", httpResult);
service.addEventListener("fault", httpFault);
service.send(parameters);
}
public function httpResult(event:ResultEvent):void {
var result:Object = event.result;
Alert.show(event.result.toString());
}
public function httpFault(event:FaultEvent):void {
var faultstring:String = event.fault.faultString;
Alert.show(faultstring + event.fault.faultDetail + event.fault.rootCause);
}
]]></mx:Script>
<mx:Button id="b1" label="Click Me" click="traceClick()" />
</mx:Application>


The log is disabled by default in Flex so first i had to create initLogging() function to enable trace and then call it from createComplete() so that the log for HTTPService gets enabled. After that i could see this log in flashlog.txt when i tried making call to www.google.com from Flex application
