ColorPicker and DateField in Flex 4.5

ColorPicker is not available in Flex 4.5 with Spark architecture. I found this problem while I was migrating desktop project to mobile AIR for Android.

Fortunately there is solution. Alex Harui wrote simple Spark based components that replace ColorPicker and DataField functionality.

Update: Unfortunetely swatch DropDown component does not work in mobile world. You could not select color from swatch. This problem is bounded to DropDown/ComboBox problem in mobile world. I recieved recommendation from Adobe developers to move DropDown part to new view state and avoid using s:DropDown.

Please drop a comment to this post if you have working mobile colorpicker component.
