Subject [jira] [Created] (FLEX-36) Add Vector implementations of IList and ICollectionView
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2012 20:11:23 GMT
Add Vector implementations of IList and ICollectionView

                 Key: FLEX-36
             Project: Apache Flex
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Josh Tynjala
            Assignee: Bertrand Delacretaz
            Priority: Minor

VectorList and VectorCollection, similar to ArrayList and ArrayCollection. Feels weird that
I need to convert Vectors to Arrays to use in Flex collections.

In case anyone is unaware, you can cast Vector.<WhateverTypeYouWant> as Vector.<*>.
Works with the "as" and "is" keywords, as you can see below:

var strings:Vector.<String> = new <String>["One", "Two", "Three"];
trace(strings is Vector.<*>); //true
var generic:Vector.<*> = strings as Vector.<*>;
trace(strings) //One, Two, Three
