MAX has been a lot of fun so far this year. Joan and I gave a talk at MAX|360 on item renderers. It was a decent crowd for the 360 area, and we got a lot of questions, which was awesome.
I think the presentation went really well. There was only one goof in the code, and I’ve fixed that in this posting (the item renderer code was fine–I just forgot to set editable=”true” in the DataGrid for RatingExample4.mxml). We had to speed through in the end and didn’t get to talk too much about the star rating renderer or some of the gumbo stuff, but we did get to answer a lot of people’s questions, which is what’s important.
There’s a lot of good stuff in there, including how to implement IDropInListItemRenderer, using states in renderers, using a checkbox as an editor, and a “star rating renderer,” which I hope people can use.
Here’s the last example we didn’t get to show:
Anyways, take a look at the slides & examples, and let me know if you’ve got any questions.
