Subject Re: [FlexJS] Accessing the DOM
Date Thu, 23 Mar 2017 21:05:01 GMT
The typedef of HTMLInputElement comes from the js.swc. You can also use “Object”.

Yes. You can use “regular” JS in any project as long as you include the js.swc s an external
library. However, you cannot compile to SWF if you do so.

I’m using VS Code and Josh’s asconfig, with this asconfig.json file to output JS:

    "config": "flex",
    "compilerOptions": {
        "debug": false,
        "js-output-type": "flexjs",
        "source-map": true,
        "library-path": [
        "external-library-path": [
    "additionalOptions": "-remove-circulars -js-output-optimization=skipAsCoercions",
