i am, new to Adobe Flex 2, i downloaded the trial the other
day and its GREAT. just need to know if i am working in "1280 x
1024 resolution will the people who are viewing my page have
trouble if they are using a Lower resolution ????
if so, could i write a simple script to get the users screen
size and change accordingly ??
You do have to take into account the most likely screen size
your users will have. The new standard, I believe, is 1024x768, but
don't take my word for it.
With Flex you can set your Application tag to have
width="100%" height="100%" and then it will fully occupy whatever
space the Flash Player is given on the web page. If you are using
the generated HTML wrapper page from either Flex Builder 2 or the
web-tier compiler, then the entire page is the Flash Player.
If you use the layout positioning properties (eg, top="10"
left="10" right="10") then the screen won't matter as much; or
rather, you won't have to worry about it as much as the components
will size and position themselves as the space allows.
That said, you can preset the Application to a likely small
size (width="800" height="600") and develop your application
accordingly, but still use positioning so it takes advantage of
larger screen sizes. Then change back to width="100%" height="100%"
before you release it on the world.
The flash.system.Capabilities class can give you more
specific information if you need it.
