Hi there. I am very new to Flex and also fairly new to
programming although I do have a little experience.
I am trying to create an app which stores code snippets or
common text I tend to use every day in my documents and emails.
So basically I need help on a design level. I can refer to
the developer's manual for exact instructions for commands, but I
need to know what to code first.
The app will consist of:
-a tree directory structure where I can create groups.
-There will be a basic text editor where I input all my data,
basic text formatting options (font, bullets etc) would be a bonus.
-A search function
-Finally it will ideally allow multiple client apps write to
a central database file over a network
Can anyone suggest how I should approach such a project?
Or are there any tutorials / source files which demonstrate
each bullet point?
I'm new too. But I think I might know the right components.
If you google any of these + flex 3 you should get some
tree - advanced dataGrid component
basic text editor - rich text editor component
search function - well, you're gonna need to read up on
arrays, and arraycollection. Once you get that stuff working, you
can write up a function to search for a string in an array.
network functionality - HTTPService, you can dump the
datagrid into a database, and have it load the database when you
open up the application.
Give these things a shot, tutorials / sources will come with
the google searches.
