UnitValue in flex

Probably it's a simple question but I'm unable to find the answer, which is the equivalent of UnitValue in flex ?


It seems UnitValue is not available with extension builder, I have looked in all libraries.


And in this case how to get the value of ( for sample) activeDocument.width ? It works playing with the string value but I'm sure it should be a better method.

    Sorry, there isn't one in any readily available library I know of.


    That said, I do have one that I wrote for my own personal use.


    I've attached the source code of the class. No guarantee it works!!

    For that matter, you might find my Bounds class useful too!


    Again, it's only been tested as far as I've needed to. No guarantees. But then you have the source, so you can fix whatever you might need to.

    Hey Bob,


    thanks for the it helps a lot. I just browsed your code for a minute and saw a possible copy&paste error in line 144:



    bounds.right.subtract( Bounds.unitValue( page.marginPreferences.bottom ) );

    bounds.bottom.subtract( Bounds.unitValue( page.marginPreferences.bottom ) );


    Looks wrong, hadn't had the time to think over it.

    Yep, it's a copy paste error.


    Thanks for pointing it out.
