FlexJS Express Components

Harbs
I’m looking at the Express components for the first time, and I have some observations/questions.

1. Container adds a ScrollingViewport bead. I was kind of expecting the bead to be added via CSS so it could be overridden in an app. What is an express app client supposed to do if they don’t want scrolling?

2. ScrollingViewport does not have a way to specify horizontal/vertical scrolling. I’m wondering if there shouldn’t be a more do-it-all bead which has options to turn on and off horizontal and vertical scrolling separately.

3. The Express components do not have convenience methods for setting bead properties. It would seem to me that convenience methods would be very helpful.

4. I seems like there’s lots of additional compound components which would be useful. I’m going to try and add some…

You make good points.

The Express package is in its infancy. I packaged things together that
were, I felt, the most common combinations, such as all Views and
Container classes have data binding. This also means Containers have
scrolling with the idea that you would use Group if you did not want
scrolling. But Group does not support background and border.

I agree that more options on the Express components could be presented as
well as allowing scrolling to be removed for a specific Express container
or all Express containers.
