Ok with a little help I've got a couple of nice flex charts,
some data grids, and a columnchart all drawing data from different
sources. I would like to now make a dashboard with two or three
charts, and a handful of data grids on the same page.
I have tried combining all the code into one big mxml file,
but I'm running into problems such as where I've used the same
names for variables, functions etc. I'm also having a hard time
sorting through the resulting tangle of code when debugging. From
what I gather, this isn't the way to do it in Flex anyway.
What I'd like to do is take my various charts and datagrid
pieces and make them into components that I can re-use and make my
man App clean and simple to debug.
I have a few questions on how to do this. Should I create AS
files or compile .SWF files ? Where do I put these things in my bin
folder? What are the gotchas? How do I place the components on the
form when the code is in another file? Will I still have any
problems with variables etc. if I have divided it up into different
I'm not asking for a step by step guide so much as to be
pointed in a general direction for this process, and pointers as to
which kind of pitfalls I should look out for.
