Skinning and styling Customize application appearance using CSS and graphical property editors. Set commonly used properties and preview the results in Design View. Browse themes and apply them to projects with the Theme Browser.
Rich visual layout Visually design and preview user interface layout, appearance, and behavior using a rich library of built-in components. Extend the built-in Flex framework components or create new ones as needed.
Interactive data visualization Create data dashboards and interactive data analysis by dragging and dropping a chart type and linking it to a data source. Use the powerful Advanced Datagrid to enable users to explore complex data.
Debug and test easily - Ensure a quality experience while reducing testing time with powerful testing tools.
Preview and debug mobile applications Debug and test applications on locally connected mobile devices or a mobile emulator.
Code faster - Reduce the time from concept to delivery with robust coding tools and comprehensive templates.
Powerful code editing Speed coding through syntax coloring, statement completion, code collapse, refactoring support, live highlighting of invalid references, and interactive step-through debugging.
Code generation Use QuickAssist/Fix to rename and manipulate variables, generate getters/setters and event handlers, organize imports, and more. Use the override/implements feature to define methods from a superclass or interface.
Data-centric development Introspect Java, PHP, Adobe ColdFusion, REST, and SOAP services to display methods and properties in the new Data/Service Explorer. Drag and drop to bind methods to user interface components.
Code templates Use over 100 new best-practice code templates (aka snippets) for ActionScript, MXML, and CSS. Review and insert templates using code assist. Create custom templates and import or export them for sharing within teams.
