Default Graphics in Flex

Hi everyone!

I tried Flash quite a bit and used to construct intarface by drawing some simple graphics and use it as ui elements. All of it were in symbols. How is it possible to do simple drawing in Flex?

use your favorite drawing software (photoshop, illustrator) and export as FXG.

You can also embed Flash symbols:

Embed(source="Assets.swf", symbol="SomeSymbol");

However, some (including myself) would argue that it's much better to use FXG these days.

Can I import an animated movieclip made in flash and issue control over its internal objects?
Like, I have a symbol with flying message window; when in flash, I can create new instance of this window and set custom message. Can it be done in flex if I import that symbol from swf?

You sure can.

Check out the SWFLoader component.
