Re: MXML vs ActionScript

Ahh... Thanks.  I think the change from mx:WindowedApplication to mx:Application is where I went wrong.

Re: MXML vs ActionScript

I don't think you ever really want to create an "Actionscript" project, since you won't get an app-xml file generated for you if you do.


To do pure AS, you create a Flex project like normal, but change you main class from Main.mxml to Main.as

Re: MXML vs ActionScript

The problem with an all actionscript project is that you won't easily have access to mx/spark components.  At least that I am aware of.

Re: MXML vs ActionScript

Do mx/spark components work on the Playbook ?
