Subject Flex Text Formatting suggestion
Date Wed, 04 Jan 2012 22:03:15 GMT
Please forgive if this is out of turn or place, it seems people are making
suggestions about the work they would like to see done on Flex and I would
like to contribute.

I've used Flex for about 5 years and always found text formatting to be
difficult and limited.

 

I would like to see as an alternative to TLF (Text Layout Framework). 

Flex could benefit from some development geared toward correctly displaying
HTML/CSS formatted text.


The reasons behind this are:

1.       Flex applications could more easily tap into content that is being
shared through traditional web pages.

2.      HTML/CSS knowledge could be leveraged against Flex instead of the
TLF approach which cannot be used anywhere else (AFAIK)

3.      The MX Text Components were heading that way (with the HTMLText
properties) but the implementation was never up to par, I hope something can
be done there. 

Lionel
