Whiteboard and FXG


Level 3
Hi, Cocomo team. At the same time I've been working with the
Cocomo SDK, I've also been experimenting with the Flex 4 SDK/Gumbo.
A logical intersection of the two would be in leveraging FXG as the
format for the whiteboard application in Cocomo. This would provide
a very simple way to serialize/save the whiteboard state in an
easily consumable way. The elements currently supported in the
whiteboard can all be reproduced/rendered in their FXG analog quite

Just a thought...

Hi Rick,

Sounds like an interesting project - have a look at
SharedWBModel in the source code, I bet you could write such a
serialization routine. Some day I might have time to write
something along those lines, but in the meantime, you're more than
welcome to take a stab at it 😃


Level 3
I'll poke around in the code and see what I can come up
with...I don't think there's such a thing as an FXG "parser" yet
(even in Gumbo, other than in the compiler) so I might have to
create something to read in arbitrary FXG and add it to the UI
model/render it dynamically. Might be useful for Gumbo also.
