I am working on a project in which I want to use a very
special container, but I have no idea where to start.
Here is what I need: A box that I can drag between columns
(easy part). I want the box to be resize-able vertically (but it
would be constrained horizontally by the column it is in). I want
the resize-ation to be constrained to only certain values. For
example, I cannot make the box 130px tall, nor 170px tall, but if I
did, it would jump to be 150px tall. The box also needs to be able
to move within the column it is in freely.
Later I will handle collision between boxes, but for now,
this is all I want.
Since Flex runs on actionscript, is it possible to do the
styling with actionscript. I have worked extensively with flash in
the past, but have almost no experience with flex. Are all of the
actionscript functions identical?
