    Trees

    draincover

      Hi

      I'm new to flash builder and hoping for some  help whilst I evaluate it. I'm a .Net person (up to now)

      Is there any way to programmatically and tree  nodes to a tree control that’s not databound? Tree.AddChild seems to be the way  but its alluding me just quite how to do this thus far.

      Thanks

          OK So its databound to an array of objects, I'll try not to ask any more simple questions!

           

          var parentObject:Object = new Object();

          parentObject.label = "Parent Object";

          var childObj1:Object = new Object();

          childObj1.label = "Child 1";

          var childObj2:Object = new Object();

          childObj2.label = "Child 2";

          parentObject.children = new Array();

          parentObject.children.push(childObj1);

          parentObject.children.push(childObj2);

          tree1.dataProvider=parentObject;

            Ask away regardless of how easy it looks after the fact. You would not believe the questions I've asked. I'll have to host a retrospective some day.

              Hi John

               

              Its nice to hear back from my question, so thank you for that.

               

              It's a very different world to get used to. I know I'm comparing apples and oranges here but in some areas is a little frustrating and others its very cool indeed. I didnt realy feel like starting again with another language but I think I might just be converting over

               

              Cheers

              PS: Do you know why a multiselect enabled list in desktop deselects other selected rows when clicking on a row but mobile does not? - Thats just my latest head scratcher!
