Thanks to Ryan for putting up the slides and examples from our talk at Flex 360 (at MAX). You can find them here:
Slides: Custom ItemRenderers.pdf
The zip file includes samples that both Ryan and I wrote. I wrote the following examples, so, if you have any questions, post a comment about them here.
– Creating a reusable itemRenderer that changes the background color of a cell (FlexActivities.mxml)
– An itemRenderer example using States (NewsExample.mxml). This example does not work well in our Gumbo alpha (which was given away at MAX). I think there are some bugs in our new development around transitions.
– An example using HSlider as an itemRenderer and editor (RatingExample.mxml)
Ryan Frishberg and I did a talk today on Advanced ItemRenderers in Flex. I will try to get the samples that we went over posted by tomorrow. Thanks to everyone who came despite us having to compete with a very popular time for MAX presentations. Stay tuned for the slides and examples coming in the next day or two.
