I am looking to have a map loaded via jpeg. I was trying to figure out if it was possible to to insert small images based on x y position. So if i have a map of say a mall. I could x y map out a shoe store and place a shoe icon there on the map. I have looked everywhere. I was thinking maybe bitmapdata.merge but I see nothing. what appoarch should I take.
You'd better go with a custom mx:Canvas class descendant, and you'll be able to utilize x,y coordinates,
put your map as a first child to the canvas and put your icons on top of the map with the desired x,y
Yes but I need to be able to zoom into the map not just have it static but i will look into your option.
Then you should put a lot of efforts into this unless you'll use third party components, good Luck!
