new flash documentation is available!

if you didn't already know, flash mx 2004 includes a new help system that can be updated dynamically. the updates that are now available fill in all the gaps that you might have noticed in flash mx 2004's documentation, including tons of new component reference material.

grab this important documentation update in your flash application by opening the Help panel (F1) and clicking "Update".

No, unfortunately. The opening Help screen should definitely list the latest changes and their related help files (with links).

I think I ran into a bug in the grid.
I tried different things but the spaceColumnsEqually()
method returns an unwanted result.

Without modifying styles or something I was following
the article about an RS editor with the datagrid.
I saw it as an exercise to learn some new things about

I have a grid, I add new columns, I add a dataprovider
It works, it displays the information. But when I invoke
grid.spaceColumnsEqually(); none of the cells are visible.
However, the rows are still added because the color of the
rows still changes when I hover.

It seems that the data is deleted ...

I'm not the AS expert but I allready found
two wrong help files.

I searched for the Alert component and
tried the popupManagerClass but it didn't work

it said:
import mx controls.Alert

but it should be:
import mx.controls.Alert

the other error was concerning the datagrid docs

MM has to release another update asap i guess ...
