    Using transformGestureEvents in Flash/Flex Builder


      Hi all,


      I am trying to use the TransformGestureEvents to allow interaction inside of a FLARE based application. I want to create a data visualisation app with touch interaction.


      I have Flash Player 10.1, which is needed for these classes, as i have already used them in a Flash CS5 test project, and i worked great!  But when i try to import the transform gesture events, an error appears saying:


      1172: Defination flash.events:TransformGestureEvents could not be found.


      Has anyone got any idea how i can use TransformGestureEvents inside of Flash Builder?


      Any advice, is deeply appreciated!


      Thanks in advance

          What version of Flex and Flash Player are you using?


          You can easily tell by adding this to your application:




                  <s:Label text="Flash Player Version: {Capabilities.version}" />


                  <s:Label text="Flex SDK Version: {mx_internal::VERSION}" />

            I am using flex 4.0 SDK and flash player 10.1.


            Since then i have tried to use the adobe air 2.5 SDK because I read somewhere that it included Touch events. I have tried to overlay the AIR SDK into my Flex 4.0 SDK folder and it doesn't seem to have worked. I am using a mac and the documentation out there to do this , isn't exactly straight forward and ive followed the instructions, but no success. Im really surprised that Adobe have not released a flex SDk with Touch events include, i mean it seem dumb not too!?!?


            Maybe if i gave you more of an insight into what i want to achieve, this could help.


            I want to use flash builder to create a search for a series of media API's (e.g Spotify/Last.FM or YouTube) the user would search for what they want and the results would be displayed in a Radial Tree Layout using the FLARE library to construct the visualisaton and I wanted to use Gestures to enable the user to navigate around the results, (ZOOMING, SELECTING, etc). I have thought about using OpenFrameworks to do this, but I would prefer to use FLASH.


            I am creating this project for my Final Degree!


            Any advice on this, would be great.

              You might want to try using the next release of Flex code named Hero: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flexsdk_hero/
