Subject Re: [RT] Design View in FlashBuilder
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2012 23:29:36 GMT
Hi Roland,

The URL should be up now. A couple of notes about the demo. The left column
can be scrolled up or down (using touch interaction like behavior) to show
more panels. The focus has been on creating an environment conducive to a
design based workflow so the work has been in the panels more than the
design view document. That will eventually be replaced. Also, the fonts
seem to be off. I'm checking into that.

Things to try. Add a component to the stage, add a group to the stage and
add components into it, set constraints, absolute and percentage based
sizes and positioning and switch between them, set a property in the
properties panel, set the visibility in the document (layers) panel, take a
snapshot of the selected item, undo and redo in the history panel, show or
export the list of changes.

Alan K - That would be awesome. I spent some time with Eclipse plugins. I
like the extensibility of Eclipse but designing the UI views with Java
seems counter productive as a Flex developer. It would take days to create
the same UI we can create in a few hours in Flex. I like the ability to be
able to create views using Flex and AS3 (that's obviously what the demo is
using). If we're thinking the same thing about plugins they are probably
somewhat compatible with what I've been working on. I can see there could
be a lot of cross over which can be a good thing.
