    Alternatives to Canvas?

    opiator

      Hi there,

       

      Apparently canvas controls takes up a lot of memory and has a lot of functionality that is usually not needed just to layout components. Are there any alternatives to Canvasses? Like a light-weight version of it? If you layout your components via MXML on the designer,UIComponent or Sprite is usually never an option(gives compilation errors).

       

      The same with Custom Components-do I really need to wrap each component I make in a canvas?

      Is there no component in Flex like .NET's <asp:Placeholder> ?

       

      Any advice would be appreciated.
