I know this has nothing to do with this library directly but has anyone used the DateChooser/Picker classes and if so could you tell me that your library import paths are for the SWC files. I keep getting an error that DateFormatter class could not be found and I can't find which file it is contained in.

You're welcome. I am working on a Application Framework at the root sprite level that will hopefully make things easier for new developers to manage a lot of the basic stuff. Moved my apps over to it and it cut a lot of code out so far. Plus adding a basic debugger/logger that works on AIR and simulator a lot easier than current methods.

Whenever I try to use components from the library it says that they can't be found. I've dropped the SWC into the libs directory of my project, and when using the autocomplete feature it acknowledges the library. Yet it shows errors on lines that use the components. For example: import com.lib.playbook.controls.DatePicker; Generates: 1172: Definition com.lib.playbook.controlsatePicker could not be found. and this: var DatePKRatePicker = DatePicker(); Generates: 1046: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: DatePicker. 1180: Call to a possibly undefined method DatePicker.
EDIT: I got it working. Just had to add the SWC under the project settings.
Error #1014: Class mx.formatters::DateFormatter could not be found.
I get this error when trying to use the DateChooser.
