Subject Re: [Proposal] Missing Spark Components : Alert, ColorPicker, HDividedGroup, VDividedGroup
Date Mon, 12 Mar 2012 03:41:48 GMT
Seems one could break the color selector down into a couple of possibilities:

1. Discrete set of color values
2. A color range

Either of these could be presented using a number of layouts, such as square, spiral, or line
gradient, and a number of item renderers (maybe for discrete values only). 

So I can identify some properties such as:

- layout
- width
- height
- color range start and color range end, or
- color values (array)
- item renderer

Then we can provide a useful collection of layouts and item renderers for mimicking some UIs
found in popular programs or OSs.
