This is a great looking component and I would really like to
get this running on my own system but I’ve never been able to
import these kinds of components into Flex Builder and make them
work (they always have errors). Can anyone explain to me (a compete
noob) how this “importing” process works. Even just a
link to some kind of tutorial at this point would be great. This is
really frustrating me! I know this has got to be simple but I just
can't figure it out.
Usually you get a number of mxml- or as-files. For those
cases I have a dummy project, where I include them. I right-click
on the source and choose "run as flex application". This way I get
to compile and run them. Usually that works just fine.
In this particular case the author published a whole project.
With "File -> Import -> existing projects ..." you can
include this project. Unfortunately the author wrote some absolute
paths in the .projects etc. I deleted those but flex didn't notice
my changes - even after "clear"ing the project.
Therefore I started a new project and installed the
downloaded files manually. Now I was able to compile it - but all I
