I’ve been busily working on slides the the MAX talk that David Zuckerman and I
are giving together, Extending Flex
Builder. This will be an
interesting session for people who want to extend Flex Builder with their own
The topics we’ll be covering are:
- The Code Model. David will give this portion of the talk. The Code
Model is an API that lets you programmatically browse and modify the set of
ActionScript classes, functions, etc. that are in the user’s code.
- The Design Model. This is another API that lets you programmatically
browse and modify the MXML portions of the user’s code.
- If you write your own SWC (Flex library project) and want to customize how
it shows up in the Components view when you give the SWC to another user,
and also how it appears in the Properties view when they have an instance
of your component selected in design view, you can add a file called
design.xml to your SWC.
- If we have time, we’ll also give a very brief introduction to writing
Eclipse plug-ins, which is necessary if you are going to be using the
Code Model and the Design Model. Not sure if there will be time for this,
because there is so much other stuff we’re trying to squeeze in.
Hope to see you there!
