Subject RE: [RT] Design View in FlashBuilder
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2012 15:09:53 GMT
Another question about this, is the Design View not used by specifically
devs so much because the layout work is actually being done with another
tool, by another person, and the devs are getting the wireframes as a
start?  Is it more of a workflow issue I wonder?

I would agree that design view is great for a very new beginner but for
someone who has got at least 2+ years of RIA experience, s/he wouldn't
want to get into the business of dragging and dropping controls just like
how it was done back in VB days.... one would want to understand and
learn/memorize different properties (along with their respective possible
vales) to get his/her dirty with deep down details.

In the past 4+ years, I haven't come across anyone who loved this feature
religiously. And, need not to mention that design view is super slow if
you try to make FB read an existing screen...

No offense to anyone and with all respect to all, personally I think
'squeeze is not worth the juice'....
