Im very new to Flex and really have only gone through the
lynda.com tutorials but I don't really know where to begin doing
something like this. I have a requirement as a desktop app. I have
to open an xml file that defines a series of objects we'll go with
the vegetable approach....
I want to store different properties of the object for
different sources...so one app might want to know color, weight and
origin another app might only want to know color and weight
I want to load it in some sort of list control or grid and
then drag the weight property into a 'vegetable builder' area. once
there I want to be able to edit the attributes of the node so in my
vegetable builder area perhaps right click the weight property
which has an attribute 'unitofmeasure' that could be assinged the
once done click a button that either outputs the xml as
string or allows the user to save the xml which would walk the list
nodes in the builder area that then output
Does this make any sense...can you point me in a
Look into the methods available for manipulating your
data-the xml data provider.
For example the XMLListCollection offers: addItem, addItemAt,
getItemAt, removeAll, removeItemAt, etc. The Collection also offers
a cursor you can use to easily navigate through the data provider.
These methods will allow you to add new data to your data
