I was wondering if this was a real bug or I am doing something wrong!
I have some calculations that I do from user input fields that are placed into an Accordion.
The input fields have default values, which I use in my calculations first when the app loads, which means, the app has already a ready made result with the default values.
Here comes the problem: The input fields that are in the first canvas of the accordion are available for calculations, all the input fields that are in not visible in the accordion are not available for calculations!
Is this normal? and if yes, then what can I do to solve my problem??
Check out Accordion.creationPolicy property. By default it does not create children which are not visible yet.
just a follow up question, how do you come across such things? Was I supposed to read the entire accordion topic in the manual or it is just matter of experience?
I mean, how did you know this? did you read it, or you knew it from past experience?
Well, experience, then google.
PS If you are new to Flex, I'd recommend browsing the source code in cases like that, it will help you understand the overall SDK architecture.
