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.

  • Can you show the code for “move DropDown part to new view state and avoid using s:DropDown” – I am glad to find your post because I have been struggling to get this to work for 2 days (mobile ViewNavigatorApplication”. If I change the override dropDownController_closeHandlerEvent to an empty function I can get my color (selectedItem) is set, but then now matter what I try, I can’t close the colorpicker and be able to open it again. This is a very cool colorpicker if I can just get the click to select the color. I am glad I found your post because I thought I was seriously missing something. Thanks.
