Mar 2, 2010 2:05 AM

Hi All,

I have just written a simple As class using flex builder3 and flex_sdk_4.0.0.10485 surprisingly it shows a dozen of errors

     my simple class is

  package {
    import flash.display.Sprite;
    import flashx.textLayout.compose.StandardFlowComposer;
    import flashx.textLayout.container.ContainerController;
    import flashx.textLayout.elements.ParagraphElement;
    import flashx.textLayout.elements.SpanElement;
    import flashx.textLayout.elements.TextFlow;


    public class HelloWorld extends Sprite
        public function HelloWorld()
            var textFlow:TextFlow = new TextFlow();
            var p:ParagraphElement = new ParagraphElement();
            var span:SpanElement = new SpanElement();
            span.text = "Hello, World";
            span.fontSize = 48;
            textFlow.flowComposer.addController(new ContainerController(this, 400, 200));


the error lis in Flex builder:



Severity and Description    Path    Resource    Location    Creation Time    Id

    I'm guessing that its choking on the Vector declarations in playerglobals.  Make sure you are targetting player10.  With FlexBuilder 3 I recall that was a bit tricky - first turn on generate HTML wrappers if it iisn't already.  But then maybe its something else.


    Hope that helps,

    It sounds like your IDE is building more than just the HelloWorld example, and that the error is in some other file. Have you searched for a class called "DemoTLF"? If you're in Flex, do a multi-file search. "DemoTLF" doesn't sound like something they'd put in the SWC.

    By default it will use the SDK that comes with Flex Builder, you will need to add the new SDK, and select it as your target Flex SDK, if you haven't already. That will ensure that it is using the correct version of the compiler when it builds. I don't remember exactly how this is done, but I think if you select "Preferences" there will be an option, perhaps under "ActionScript" for installing the Flex SDK. I would suggest checking to make sure this is done.
