In an Adobe AIR project I needed a gauge component for Flex 4. I found the Degrafa Gauge to my liking, but I ran into trouble as Degrafa isn’t ready for Flex 4 yet. I continued to dig some and found a prerelease of Degrafa for Flex 4, but the Gauge component wasn’t compatible. Instead of fixing that I decided to build on a version of that Gauge that was built without strings to Degrafa. (Degrafa is wonderful, it’s just that the whole story with a once working component that can’t keep the pace up with Adobe’s upgrades to the Flex platform directed my to build from something with less dependencies.) I found it here: http://www.smithfox.com/?e=48
My version is up on Github now – https://github.com/PEZ/FlexGauge - please feel invited to fork it. If you just want to see it in action I’ve put a demo in my Dropbox: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3259215/gauge-demo/gaugetestflash.html. The component is both skinnable and stylable even if some of the settings are hardcoded. It looks like this styled to my liking:
I’m a bit too tired to write more about it right now, but please ask questions or suggest features/changes to the gauge component.
