changelog v3.0.0- Flex4

– SmartForm compatibility with spark component

– added addEventListener signature to IExternalRessource.
– XMLSpringResource constructor needs now only a path.
– XMLSpringResource addEventListener() updated to match EventDispatcher equivalent method signature.
– GlobalizationDictionary implements IExternalRessource.
– GlobalizationDictionary dispatches a COMPLETE event when file is loaded.
– GlobalizationDictionary load() function replaced by setUri() setter. load() function is used now for loading XML only.
– A GlobalizationDictionaryError is thrown when trying to change GlobalizationDictionary file Uri.
– AbstractApplication extends spark.components.Application.
– AbstractAirApplication extends spark.components.WindowedApplication.
– Views : mx containers replaced by spark containers.
– IView extends IVisualElementContainer and IVisualElement in addition of IUIComponent to match spark containers specifications.
– getView() ViewHelper method result is casted to IView and no more to Container.
– Widget is a spark.components.Group.
– ISmartFormElement and all components extending it: setValue updated to setItemValue and getValue to getItemValue.

– SFTextArea : renderer maxDisplayedLines set 0 and renderer height set to component height.
– DelayTextInput : Event.CHANGE updated to TextOperationEvent.CHANGE.

– SFComboBox dataProvider setter update : verifying that the dataProvider is a an IList.
– Update of extractURI() to match Flex 4 container’s child handling.
