is there any advantages over making my custom component an MXML object or AS? As far as i can tell, the functionality is the same, but the code is different. I have been doing mostly practice applications, and am finally getting to a point where i'm writing code that might eventually be used in a live application, so now i need to make some implementation decisions. I would GREATLY appreciate any opinions either way.
Each has its benefits, and I use both. But if I need to optimize for speed,
AS will be the only way. MXML compiles down to AS so even if you start with
MXML, you can convert to AS and optimize from there.
