Angular2 *ngIf takes time for buttons to disappear

This is just a note
When using Angular's *ngIf verb the element that it is supposed to hide can be still visible for several milliseconds
(enough for the user to see it going away)

Example of problematic code:

<div *ngIf="(!list?.is_public || isAdmin()) && !isInSuper">

Flex Popup doesn't appear until you click outside of browser

Using the latest chrome build (Version 32.0.1700.107)
Flex Dialogs and Flex Popups (or Alerts) might not show until the user clicked outside the screen
or switches to a different Tab

To solve this issue, even as a workaround we can use this simple technique:
1. Open the popup
2. Wait X milliseconds
3. Move the popup a bit to the right and then return to the same place

FLEX Locale bug - @Resource Bug

Well, Not sure that this is really a flex bug but to me it was very wired behavior

Is it possible to show "No data found" on datagrid/advance datagird in Flex

In order to show "No Data" message above the DataGrid when there is no data in it we can use the following technique:

1. create a canvas and place the data grid on it
2. place also a HBox/VBox on that canvas and in it place a label with the message you want (I.E "no data")
3. Control visibility of the HBox by using binding with the DataGrid length

See code

Preventing From SWF files from showing images or objects out of the FLEX SWFLoader stage

So the story is like this. I was using a FLEX SWFLoader to load some external SWF files, these SWF files have some objects in them and when played the objects(in this case images) appear out of the border of the SWFLoader. It seams that the images expand out of the border and hide other GUI elements that are near the SWFLoader.

FLEX Binding and function calls

This short example is meant to demonstrate the usage of data binging in FLEX to invoke method calls. Copy the code to an editor to be able to use the line numbers that will be specified later

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
