Subject Flex Mobile components in desktop/browser applications
Date Wed, 21 Nov 2012 14:30:27 GMT

I'd like to ask the motivation behind mobile components (like
ViewNavigator, CallOut,...) be only for mobile.

For example, a ViewNavigator is a great component for wizard
implementations having lot of sense in browser/desktop apps. The builtin
transitions and push/pop functionality is really cool!.

So what do you think about extend the use of mobile components to
browser/desktop apps.
Right now it could be done with some tricks like the ones described here:

In my test I need mobilecomponents.swc and mobile.swc in the project to get
it work, but a tight implementation should avoid that separation and bring
at least new MXML skins for desktop/browser applications while maintain
current mobile skins for mobile targets. So we could make some changes in
this direction in order to get a more natural use.

What do you think about it?
