Flex and Flash workflow integration

27 02 2009

This is good news! We can use some of the exclusive Flex SDK classes in a Flash project using Flash CS4. All we need to do is:

  1. create a library project (SWC) in Flex
  2. in the library class constructor create an object of the class you want to use in Flash ( example:  new StringUtil() )
  3. create a new Actionscript 3.0 file in Flash CS4.
  4. goto Publish Settings > Flash > Settings… > Library Path tab.
  5. click the red icon button and browse to the SWC file and add it to library path. You can also add multiple SWC files.

There you go. You can use the required Flex SDK class in Flash CS4. Though, not all of the classes can be used this way, esp. the framework classes (controls, containers, etc.) Still looking for the exact list of classes that can be used. I was successful with StringUtil but could not utilize my favorite ArrayCollection this way.
