Subject Re: [jira] (FLEX-34756) How to know when the textFlow is damaged?
Date Fri, 27 Feb 2015 17:14:34 GMT
Hi Alex,

I'm not sure what you mean by "why not add enough code to get its
value"? In my mind, I can't get the value of
FlowComposerBase.isDamaged() because all text fields have a
StandardFlowComposer by default (and I can't change this, because I'm
in Squiggly, so I have to assume things are in their default setup),
which overrides this function to return something I can't use anymore.
What am I missing?

Or do you mean temporarily changing the TextFlow.flowComposer that
extends FlowComposerBase to each text field every time I would need to
check to see if the textFlow is damaged?
(No, sorry, that wouldn't work, because it wouldn't have any
information about the damage that occurred before this reset of

Sorry, I'm still out of ideas.
