    Flash components vs. Flex components

    bhnh
      I know almost nothing about Flex. Just wanted to establish that at the outset.

      A client sent me an API component - an swc file - to use in a project I'm doing. I installed it in my Flash folders, but it didn't show up in the Components panel when I launched Flash. When I queried the client about it, he said that it was actually a Flex component.

      My question is, what's the difference between a Component written for Flex and one written for Flash ? Can a Flex component be adapted for use in Flash ? In that what I received is a .swc, I'm assuming it has to have been written in ActionScript.

      Any help would be hugely appreciated. Many thanks.
