Someone seems to be mad :P
I am not mad anymore as about 3 months ago i stopped the madness that is using flex for building web sites and just went back to HTML and AJAX solutions and things are working out for me allot better. I am able to build way faster, with less stress and both me and my machine plus my applications are way smaller and compliant.
Almost every time i tried to secure a client with a flex demo there was some kind of issue at their office that prevented flex from loading and usually from installing so my demos were routinely reduced to a progress bar and error msg, not good, not professional and not possible to work around. All the features my clients wanted were all the things flex does so terribly and in the end it was a massive waste of time trying to utilize it for anything other then video and audio presentation.
*LOUD FARTING NOISE*
Good for you man :)
Unfortunately there are people who use flex and are happy that way, me included :)
I felt your pain... but am over it now...
Flex does have a steep learning curve but after using it for a few months it also does some amazing things. I still get a little confused about why and how flex goes about calling events but I am getting used to it now. But now that I have developed my first database driven application (with 50 back end tables) I am pretty satisfied with the choice I made to develop this in Flex instead of CF.
My end users are so impressed that I am confident that this project will lead to more work down the road. Amazing product but it doesn't do all for all. Also I don't think all can learn to use it, but if you are one of them that can learn it prepare to write your own ticket!
Have an Ordinary Day...
P.S. some of the undocumented features are pretty annoying though... just look at my latest help me flare!!! :)
