Sometimes I hate Flex… Sometimes

Don’t get it wrong… I am not leaving Flex, most of my current developments still rely on it and I am sure it will last for several more years.

Working with Flex for nearly two years. I am sure I have the right choice however sometimes Flex do makes me mad.

  • SWFLoader content can’t be unloaded completely. (How many times you try to replace a loader content but you notice the content music never gone away)
  • VideoDisplay component doesn’t play .flv correctly…
  • Not even those produced by Flash Video Encoder…
  • Non standard CSS
  • Math.floor (Math.random () * 4) + 6 (Oh my god… I just want a random integer)
  • Smooth scroll List
  • Disabling Ctrl key during drag move
  • Gradient fill Container
  • Full screen Keyboard input… (I understand security… but that should be user’s responsibility… not developer’s obstacle)

Flex Builder related…

  • Why can’t I export my syntax coloring settings?
  • I don’t know which part I haven’t done yet… WHERE’S MY TODO!?!?
  • Auto building get set function please…

To be continue…

Adobe… please… I love advancedDataGrid… but fix the old ones first…
