Our company is looking for a graphical toolkit built on Flex
that gives basic Node, port, connection creating and editing
capabilities. In addition, we need graph printing, copy/paste
clipboard support and basic Undo/Redo support. We evaluated yFiles
for Flex but found it has way more than we need in terms of graph
layout and is extremely pricey. I also found it very difficult to
work with (a lot of type casting needed to access basic
functionality), the "how to" documentation extremely limited and
samples too basic. The Flex version of yFiles is also missing
Undo/ReDo and copy/paste support. We'd prefer something open source
if we could find it but mostly, we just need something easy to use.
1. Has anyone else worked with yFiles for Flex and if so,
what is your opinion?
2. Does anyone know of any other graphical toolkits for Flex
that we can try or evaluate - preferably something you are using
and have had success with? We have seen a lot of pure graph
visualization tools but we need actual create/edit/save/reload
capabilities - layout visualization is secondary for us.
