His font and images look bigger. Is he running at a smaller resolution? Unfortunately, Flex tends to favor specifying things in pixels, which does not work well across resolutions.
Wow, what has web designing come to?!
I tried HTML and CSS first, different browser issue.
Then tried to do it in a CMS (Joomla), same issue!
Now flex is behaving like this (not as bad as the CSS or CMS (which is basically in CSS)) !
How can I get a universal browser/resolution compatible site? Are those days over? Lol
Were those days ever here? Resolution-independent design is hard. Your images are going to be different sizes unless you rescale them (in which case they're going to look terrible). Fonts are going to have similar issues. Flex supports constraint-based layouts and percent-based layouts which are both a partial solution. Unfortunately, Flex support for fluid layouts is limited (the flexlib FlowBox helps, but it's not perfect).
Ha ha, you have a point.
I am using the layout = "absolute" property, you think that would be the best one? I do notice there is a 'vertical' and 'horizontal' property to choose from as well.
How difficult are the percent based layouts to use? Is that a Flex property on the mx:Application property?
For percent-based layout in mxml, set, e.g., width="80%". For ActionScript, use the percentWidth property instead of just width.
Constraint-based layouts are about using the top, left, right, and bottom styles. E.g., if you set bottom="5", your component will be laid out five pixels (unfortunately, it's still pixels) from the bottom edge of the containing component.
