Hi All,

We are developing a product using flex4 Actionscript3.0. Air 2.0.
our idea is to develop a product which can fit into a device, desktop or laptop  with diff resolution  etc.....
The application consists of many images.....
In order to make the product flexible how should we startup with the design wrt images, controls , containers of flex4.....
Since we are beginners we have no enough idea in developing product  is there any inputs to be known in prior.........
Planning to design product with touch screen ....

Regards
Pradeep

I am not that expert in flex also, but I am using it to develop softwares since two years, what I do to make the resolution relative to screen resolution, is as follow:
1. Read The Screen Resolution, (X,Y)
2. For Main Application Screen
Width = {mainScreenX*0.5) Height = {MainScreenX*0.5)
3. Form Called Add User
AddUser.Width = {mainX*0.5) .. ..
4. Data Grid in Form add User
dg.width = {frmAddUser * 0.33) ...

You have to start your application design keeping in mind of a liquid layout.
Try using percentages while assigning width and height of components within. Also for positioning do not use hard-coded values, all should be relative to the available display area.

IN flex, make sure ALL of your objects remain as vector so they scale evenly with the screen... If they are fixed "bitmaps" they will end up sort and fat, or tall and thin.
