Subject Re: Design view for Flash Builder 4.7
Date Sun, 22 Nov 2015 05:37:47 GMT
I tried for about a week to enable design view in FB 4.7 but to no avail. I
found properties and turned them on and still nothing changed.

I've been working on radiate for way too long now, www.radii8.com. The
desktop version is coming along. It's main feature is that you can mock
something up quickly with drag and drop, setting properties and styles, and
work with grouping and layers. It shows you the code for your layout as you

There has been a lot of work and problems like the cursor not working in
code editors or slow syntax highlighting, plus handling anything more than
basic MXML. It's been getting better though.

My main goal was to easily see changes and build layouts for my Flex apps.
It THEN changed when I didn't want to write the code for a website. I
thought it would be easy to translate the MXML to HTML. ... .... .... ....
It now supports mildly accurate HTML export. I'm hoping to draw the HTML
developers because their life is shit sometimes. I've also tried to
integrate WordPress into it for saving and loading projects online, user
management and creating themes. That's going pretty good. These are things
that I will find useful and maybe others I don't know.

I was doing uploading with FTP but that's not secure in AIR so with
WordPress I can save a "post" which is a post with custom fields that
contain the MXML page, the HTML page, the CSS and HTML Wrapper. No
uploading. So you can see web pages or designs online pretty easily.

An interesting thing is that I have been trying to take the clean work I
did in Flex code generation and make it work for HTML. HTML is just really
messed up. It's one patch that patches another patch that patches another
patch to make things work. Flex gets it right. So after some polishing on
some of the HTML export I'm going to go back to focusing on Flex features.
Adding states, adding skins, adding declarations panel and maybe maybe
maybe roundtrip or partial round trip for some MXML. Then hook that up to
the compiler.

I donated an earlier version to Apache and haven't updated it. I know it
takes work and motivation to lead something but there was any amount of
interest esp at the stage it was donated. So the version I've been working
on deviates on those multiple fronts I mentioned earlier and I'm hoping to
sell because I want to keep working on it. I can't figure out any other way
to keep making it. Anyway, if any developers on this list want it it's free
now and if you're a Flex developer it will be deeply discounted or free.
