I was looking for a more complete Flex class hierarchy diagram then the ones found in Flex books and really didn’t find anything out there. So I thought about making a small Flex application that shows the class hierarchy in Flex and googled to see if someone had already done this. It turns out, Jonathan Branam had done a simple but slick Class Browser as an AIR application and had the source available for download. I changed the AIR app into a Flex app, and shrunk down some of the graphics and displayed some of the most commonly used Flex classes by default. The following is the result and it’s a good reference to have. BTW, check out Jonathan Branam’s blog at http://jonathanbranam.net, he has some really good information about class hierarchy and component lifecycle in flex.
