Subject Re: FlexJS element setter
Date Tue, 26 Sep 2017 13:12:53 GMT
Hi Harbs,

If you will do such changes like moving to set flexjs_wrapper in the setter
of element - please make it on the separate branch. Let me test with my app
whether MDL will not breaking up. I hope that we could avoid this one, even
if I think that it seems to be quite reasonable to do that.

Can you for example do this only for your custom component not for the
global IUIBase class ?

Let see what Peter say.

Thanks, Piotr
