    Designer Developer Round-trip

    Wilvis

      Hi all,

       

      I'm interested in the MXML that Catalyst produces, and how much work this might generate for the developer.

       

      My worry (as both a developer and a designer) is that all the mxml is going to be lumped into an 'Application' tag. This could create a boat-load of work for the developer, who would want to separate out the views into a folder structure. Then, if the original design changes, we're going to be playing an unpleasant game of hunt, copy, paste...

       

      Are there any plans to have a logical separation of the MXML generated by Catalyst?

       

      Thanks,

       

      Will

          Hi Will

           

          One natural way that Flash Catalyst separates out code is through componentization. In the UI, it's very easy to select artwork and convert it to a component--for example, a button, a scrollbar, or a custom component. Custom components and skins for built-in components are automatically extracted into separate files, which can be named from within FC.

           

          Thanks,
