    Employee Directory -- Day 2

    bnther Level 1

      Day 1 was great.  Loved it

       

      Day 2, I'm having some issues with.  Excercise 4 was not a problem, but she takes off with "Creating custom MXML components" -- which looks like fun, but she's working with a file Employee Directory that she built without me.  I opened the 'solution' project for custom components(5) and it's blank...not very helpful.

       

      At any rate, I'd really like to follow along with her if I had at least the file that she starts with.  Exercise 6 starts off with Options.MXML which I have, but who knows how it will work with EmployeeDirectory.MXML being blank.

       

      Any help would be appreciated.

          I think the confusion comes from assuming the the video examples match the exercises. The examples are not the same, but the learning points are the same.

          If I open the solution file for exercise 5, using the Compiler version of Flex 3.5 (this is Flex 3 training), then I can see the main application as well as it's components.

           

          I hope this helps.

            That is confusing, especially when Day 1 matched up.

             

            I don't mean to be ungrateful for the tutorials that they have provided, but this does add a new degree of difficulty to the situation. I'm not sure why they chose to do this, but I guess that I have no choice but to try and move forward with it.

             

            Thanks for the reply.
