Subject Re: Is UI like this possible in Flex?
Date Thu, 27 May 2010 12:47:28 GMT

I have only one problem. I have not been into programming for long. When i
see such a huge
application in PIVOT,i feel i can't do it because right now i don't even
know the ABC of pivot
how will i make such a big application. I get discouraged and leave it.
