Subject Re: Migrating Enterprise Flex Application
Date Thu, 19 Jul 2018 17:21:11 GMT
Hi Carlos,

Until Jewel has more of the views for existing Flex controls, it isn't worth trying to re-use
Jewel view beads in the emulation components.  Once you have more of them working, then we'll
simply try them and fix bugs.

    Hi Alex,
    about trying to use Jewel as view part, I think we should trace a plan. I
    still have work in my TODO list, for example I think my next stop is Jewel
    DateFiels and Jewel DropDownList/ComboBox... but I still want to try the
    "exploded" component route. So using StyledUIBase in MXML adding beads I
    can get a Jewel Button, a Jewel Slider and so on...
    But as well although I think I'll not use emulation components on our App,
    I think will be good if I must have some rules into account to make Jewel
    visualization reusable.
    For this I think we should create a thread, and maybe a example project
    where we could work together and make the convergence of code possible.
    I think one problem is that if we expect from others to code what we have
    in mind, that will never happen, since I think although we share a "macro"
    view perspective, in the "micro" view we all have, as normal, different
    ways of approach, so the only way I see is to join forces in integrating
    things, more over where you have a huge knowledge of things happening in
    emulation, while I have the same on things happening on Jewel.
