||What Is a Flash MX Component?|

Response to: NO ... I don't use them
components are here to stay, trust me. if you develop windows apps, you don't write a Menu or DialogBox class yourself, you use the corresponding MFC class. if you're developing java apps, you likely don't write a Tree class yourself, you use JTree. if you're developing flash apps, you use components. after all, you're developing apps, not UI widgets. of course, in some situations you'll produce your own specialized UI widgets for any platform, but for standard apps, you use the built in UI libraries.
