We are porting a flex 3.2 app to mobile app. The 3.2 app uses mx.rpc.http.HTTPService to send XML requests for data and launch video web pages. Will a flex 4.6 Air Mobile app be able to do the same? If so, what replaces mx.rpc.http.HTTPService? I read that mx components will not work in Flex mobile apps.
Its working fine.And the mxml components which are displayobject should not be used in the mobile application except the chart.
So nothing wrong with using "mx.rpc.http.HTTPService",you can also use <s:HTTPService/>
Also there is a nice way to see which components should be used or which not for the mobile application.
Simply mouse over on the component when you have used it.You can see a message on that if that is not optimized for the mobile application like for the combobox you can see this message:-
"Adobe discourages using ComboBox when targeting profiles: mobileDevice."
While this is not the case with <s:HTTPService/>.
Thank you very much. Got the first draft done, and yes, it seems your advice is correct.
Thank you again.
