Subject Re: Flex Charts: Will they improve?

Thanks a lot everyone for listening!

I'm just a poor CSS developer, I'm afraid I can't really contribute yet.
All I can do is beg for full CSS support:

(some of this logic may be a bit off, but I hope y'all understand
nonetheless)

1. Positioning items in a row:

<s:layout>
  <s:HorizontalLayout />
</s:layout>

Oughta be: #column-chart { display: inline; }

2. Hiding shadows:

<mx:seriesFilters>
  <fx:Array />
</mx:seriesFilters>

Oughta be: #column-chart { box-shadow: none; }

Or: .drop-shadow { display: none; }

3. Hiding grid lines:

<mx:backgroundElements>
  <fx:Array />
</mx:backgroundElements>

Oughta be: .grid-lines { display: none; }

4. Hiding axis lines and tick placements:

<mx:horizontalAxisRenderers>
  <mx:AxisRenderer id="horizontalAxis" axis="{chart.horizontalAxis}"
showLine="false" tickPlacement="none" />
</mx:horizontalAxisRenderers>
<mx:verticalAxisRenderers>
  <mx:AxisRenderer id="verticalAxis" axis="{chart.verticalAxis}"
showLine="false" tickPlacement="none" />
</mx:verticalAxisRenderers>

Oughta be:

#horizontal-axis-renderer.gridlines,
#horizontal-axis-renderer.tick-placements,
#vertical-axis-renderer.gridlines,
#vertical-axis-renderer.tick-placements { display: none; }

8. No made up declaration names (make those selectors instead):

.myAxisStyles { showLine: false; tickPlacement: none; }

Oughta be: .axis-lines, .tick-placements { display: none; }

5. Use real size units:

mx|DataTip { paddingLeft: 3; paddingTop: 3; }

Oughta be: .datatip { padding-left: 3px; padding-top: 3px; }

7. Support CSS shorthand:

.datatip { padding: 3px 0 0 3px; }


Thanks again!
