when I go to: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/FlashPlatform/reference/actionscript/3/all -index-S.html ,'Script' is not listed.
ideally I would like to see both the mx and the s versions so that I can compare them.
when I search it does show the mxml-only fx version, but that is not consistent with the rest of the documentation ( or as much as I have seen so far ) where seemingly all classes are indexed.
The script tag does not represent a class. It is a syntactic convenience for including code statements in MXML.
pauland, thanks for your response.
I suppose it is a mute point, but why even give it a namespace then? though I guess by definition mxml tags must have a namespace.
also, I don't see it listed in any of the spark/mx/mxml-manifest.xml files .... suppose that means that it is hardcoded into the compiler?
also is there a list of non-class elements ( such as Script )?
I don't know - I look for what I need to make things work - I'm not proof-reading the documentation!
no problem. thanks.
The special MXML tags that don't simply 'new' up an instance of a class are:
I found the following doc page:
It also includes XML and XMLList, but I don't thing those are actually special.
