Accessible HyperlinkText Component

6 Comments

So as Flex rapidly corners the market in RIA development, we will start to see an increasing need to make accessible applications. Currently Flex has a formidable component set, much of which is accessible right out-of-the-box. But one thing they forgot to add was a multiline hyperlink-type component. Here are some screenshot links:

Here are some of its features:

  • text is completely styleable
  • button skins are styleable/skinnable (in the screenshots I am suppressing the default LinkButton skins)
  • accessible
  • lightweight

I uploaded the swc here: jwo_lib.swc.

Please provide some feedback as I made this in about 3 hrs and I am sure it has some deficiencies.
