Subject Re: [IDEAS] Flex: New user interface design
Date Thu, 23 Feb 2012 09:25:13 GMT
This would be great. I've been working on some things like this. I've
created skins for OSX like scrollbars [1], a throw button [2] and skins for
search text input (I'll have to post it).

The throw button is any button that emits events when you press on it and
drag into a direction.

In the example [2] you click and drag to the left or the right to do things
like bring in different views. If you double click on the button it shows
the next example. This shows a header that acts as a sort of navigation
controller. If you drag to the right or left it will switch views
(theoretically - I didn't add this behavior). If you pull down from the top
it could refresh the data (or pull in a view from the top). Same for any
other direction.

Do we have an examples section yet? If not I suggest,
- Examples
  - Buttons
  - DataGrid
  - List

But if we have skins should that be another section or part of the examples
sections?

- Skins
  - Buttons
  - DataGrid
  - List

etc
