We have been seeing an issue where in some of our MXML code, the editing gets painfully slow. As I type, it can take many seconds for the characters to appear on screen. It makes some of our components basically un-editable within Flash Builder.
I’m trying to get a good repro together for Adobe, and today I narrowed down the issue in one of our components to the presence of a
mx:DataGrid tag with multiple attributes.
Has anyone else experienced this?
UPDATE (05/31/2011): I can get around it by subclassing DataGrid as something like DataGrid2. I don’t actually do anything different in my subclass. I just use that in my component instead of referencing DataGrid, and it works like a champ again.
P.S. We had already disabled Design mode a long time ago, so unfortunately, that is not the culprit in this particular case. I’ve also attempted to disable everything “content-assist” related within the MXML Content-assist settings, and that didn’t seem to help. I look forward to discovering a simple setting that can bring the performance back!
