Degrafa and Flex 4 are now one!


Flex 4 will be using the Degrafa framework instead of doing separate paths and projects.  This is really exciting news, as the code that is generated from Thermo will be compatible with the Degrafa engine, which also means that code exported from Fireworks will also have Degrafa compatibilities.

Congrats to the Degrafa team!  Excellent work to the Flex team for choosing a very worthy project to partner with!

Editorial Update : This was a message that was talked about during one of the Keynotes at 360|Flex many years ago.  It ended up being that the Flex 4 team consulted with the Defgrafa team, and ended up using many of their structures and layouts, but did not incorporate the entire engine.  At the time of this update, Degrafa is not compatible with Flex 4 — you should use FXG in its place.

    Some how I knew that was going to happen, great news! Congratulations to the Degrafa team!

    Just to clarify a little, the Flex team and Degrafa teams are working together to put appropriate concepts from Degrafa into the Flex Graphics classes. This means that in many respects Degrafa will be a superset of functionality that comes with Flex, but it is not that Degrafa and the Flex Graphics classes will be one and the same. So Thermo is not outputting Degrafa code, it is outputting Flex code, but that code is likely easily extended with Degrafa later.

      Hi Matt,

      Any update on this. Is it possible to use latest version of degrafa with Flex-4. I am not able to upgrade my flex-3+ degrafa to flex4+degarfa. There are runtime errors.

    Thanks for the clarification. We are all excited to see how it all works out!

    I was trying to use degrafa with flex-4 . The latest .swc from degarfa givesruntime verify error when I use it in a flex-4 project. This error I normally see in case of version mismath.

    Is there a way the degrafa’s latest version can be used with flex-4.

    Can anyone show a sample how Degrafa can be used in Flex4

    I am having the same issue like Andy mentioned

    Same question as Andy. Is there a Flex4 built .swc?

      Is this really coming? Is Degrafa going to be Flex 4 enabled? Is it work in the labs or just a speculation?
