DEVELOPING WITH YOUR INNER DESIGNER
Mike Jones (Adobe Systems)

This was kinda the rest of the Adobe Catalyst demo from the key note. I cant see much else that makes going from a mock up to a real app this easy. Using tools like Balsamiq and Napkee is close, but they can't work on an actual comp from Illustrator or Photoshop.

Reseting a Flex DataGrid's dataProvider when using a filterFunction

It's fairly common to have a filterFunction applied to the ArrayCollection you are displaying in a DataGrid, such as to hide deleted items:

dataGridData.filterFunction=stateFilterFunction;

I was also allowing users to edit and remove the displayed items; so needed a quick way for them to 'reset' all their unsaved changes, which lead to a couple of gotchas.
