Subject Re: RichSelectableText-Component missing?
Date Tue, 20 Nov 2012 13:40:10 GMT
Hi Maxime,

Sure ... this code is ballshoot ;) It's just a personal Helper-class 
because we are trying to avoid writing editable="false" everywhere:
			
	<s:RichEditableText
		text="SELECT ME"
		editable="false"
		/>

... and, for some reasons, this RichSelectableText 
behaviour is needed fairly often in these projects :(


Sincerely Yours,
