In my day-to-day flex 3 development work I always use code behind to store the actionscript for a component.
I was wondering if any changes had been made to the way code behind work? One of the issues with flex 3 code behind is that it forces you to use the public namespace for referenced sub components (they even mention this as a weakness in the documentation). Has this been changed/improved at all?
With flex 4 there a skin can have the host component specified as metadata, is there any plans for something similar with components and their code behind?
Conrad - there's no plans to enhance specific codebehind support. It's worth mentioning, however, that you can adopt the spark skinning model for all of your components to get a good codebehind separation of view and logic.
