Flex – Separating Content from Code

I’m likely to be doing more Flex programming in the relatively near future, so I’m gathering interesting posts.


My only problem with this example (and it is primarily because it is just an example) is that it makes it much harder to see the direct consequence of an action – you have to go hunting for it – the button and its clickAction are loosely coupled, which is a good thing in many cases, but harder to understand when you’re trying to support or maintain.

I suspect that better naming strategies would help here.  And certainly I’m not blaming the author of the post – he was focused on demonstrating separation, not maintainability.
