FD ui components

Are the UI components such as buttons, list box’s, ect only included in Adobe Flash CSX? I want to create a simple list box, but it seems these aren’t included in the flex installation because Flash Develop doesn’t recognise any of these components.

Well, anything fl.* is indeed outside FlashDevelop.

Any way to get the component source? I just went with another ui component library because I can’t be bothered making my own, but it’d be good to know for future reference.

If you own Flash CSx, you can export a .swc with the components you want inside (and link them I believe) and you can then use them from inside FD as you wouild any imported .swc file. I did this once when I had access to a Flash CSx copy, and it worked fine.

Doesn’t Flex come with a whole bunch of components? I think you can use those in FD if you include the .swc in your library.

You could also try MinimalComps

It doesn’t allow much customization, but it’s lightweight and is fairly easy to use.
