I need to use a layout component that is like the grid, but able to accept items at x,y coordinates . I am
reading form elements from an XML file (label, combobox, textinput etc) and need to create a "form".
The Xml elements have X,Y grid coordinates (not pixel placement), and are not deliminated by row elements,i.e. <row><field/>....</row>
but are just a list of field nodes i.e. <fields><field /><field />...</fields> so I cannot use a mx:gridRow .
I have tried canvasGrid, but it is a little buggy, and the cell width is fixed for every column, which I need to be dynamic.
Is there a suitable layout manager available?
