One of the components that is very common in a mobile app is the Switcher component. The on/off switch is usually available on IOS and Android devices. This component is like a toggle button but with a skin that makes it look as a Switcher.

This is part 5 of my series on item renderers. As you may know, the Mobile Flex Framework does not have a DataGrid, mostly because a DataGrid control uses a lot of real state and the phone has a small screen. But, we have tablets too and a Grid makes complete sense. However, the regular flex DataGrid will not work as it is too heavy for that. We also want gestures and bouncing like the mobile List has. So the workaround is to make an ItemRenderer that mimics a grid.
This is part 4 of my series on item renderers. This time we have a more real example that includes two states (selected and up) plus and avatar image and a bunch of text fields.
What I choose as the example is a TweetRenderer that shows the picture of the user, the user name and the content of the tweet.
This is Part 3 of the series "Mobile ItemRenderer in ActionScript". This time we are going to use a different option to add the drop shadows to the text. We will be using a filter instead of having an extra text field.
This is Part 2 of my series "Mobile ItemRenderers in ActionScript". This time I will explore how to apply drop shadows using a second TextField.
