Subject Re: UI Designer ("Design View" replacement)
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2013 02:30:21 GMT
I would respectfully disagree. Every Flex engineer worth their salt that I
have ever worked with dumped the design view after about week 3 of learning

Typically after that point when you start integrating your code with real
live data sources that are driving your UI the design view rapidly becomes
worthless. You start drawing your UI dynamically based on the data that is
provided, learn that the demos they do with data binding will never be used
in the real world because of the performance hits you get by just putting a
[Bindable] on everything without custom events tied to them, etc. and the
design view would just fall apart with those real world scenarios.
