compile at runtime?
afaik flex compiles converts mxml into as classes and then compiles
those against the flex framework. (but i know very little about flex)
what Igor is offering is a way of dynamically loading mxml format
layouts to use with as2.
I'd guess that the actual UI components used can be changed, how
flexible that part of the system is remains to be seen, but being an
open source project it can be changed :)
I can imagine that having an mxml -> mm components or mxml -> aswing
etc.. runtime ui system would be useful for a lot of folks.
I could put it to immediate use in existing as2 projects that are in
need of a UI overhaul, and often require quick changes to be made to the
UI but at the moment doing so requires a recompile, which even with
MTASC isnt as quick as editing an xml file (perhaps edited on the server).
