Subject RE: Advice needed on FLEX-33994
Date Sat, 22 Mar 2014 22:08:03 GMT
I have implemented and committed the new feature, as discussed.
Testers are welcome.

(extract from the JIRA description)

the following @media selectors have been implemented: 

device-width : standard, current device width, depending on the orientation 
device-height : standard, current device height, depending on the orientation 
-flex-device-diagonal : non-standard, current device diagonal 

All three selectors can be expressed with units. 
The following units are valid: (no unit), px, pt, in, cm, dp 
no unit => physical pixels 
px => physical pixel 
pt => pixels-equivalent at 72 ppi 
dp => pixels-equivalent at 160 ppi. 
Note that pt, in and cm are based on "raw" device dpi, whereas dp is based on normalized "applicationDPI".

For optimization reasons, -flex-device-diagonal is guaranteed to never change so that styles
do not need to be recomputed. This is mainly useful on mobile devices. 

Examples of valid media queries: 

/* phones */ 
@media (-flex-max-device-diagonal: 5in) { 
    global { fontSize: 24; } 

/* tablets */ 
@media (-flex-min-device-diagonal: 5in) AND (-flex-max-device-diagonal: 11in) 
    global { fontSize: 16; } 


Note for Lee:  deviceWidth, deviceHeigth and flexDeviceDiagonal are accessible in actionScript
with eg.


This returns an object of type: mx.styles.CSSDimension (see Apache documentation for reference)

Personally, i'm happy if it's not bindable.

Even better ;)
