this methode convert the date into the time instance and can be used to comparing the dates.

I was facing the problem in converting the string in format 2009-01-22 06:10:22 (YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS) , do u know how to do this? I tried the normal way of DateField.dateToString and DateField.stringToDate , but it gives me the null result.

Coding conventions and tips for Flex normally used

1) Private & protected property names are prefaced with an underscore by convention. I.e. private var _myProp:String;

2) Use the camelCase letter for function name and variable name.

3)Obtain a reference to the top-level application object from anywhere within a flex app by using the static property Application.application

4)Use CSS (Application{backgroundGradientAlphas , backgroundGradientColors }) & compiler arg (-default-background-color #CCCCCC) to change the background color of a flex app.
