3. Client/Server Interaction, UI Compone... > 3.1. User Interface Components

User Interface Components

Flash Remoting complements the client-side UI components of the Flash authoring environment. This rigorously pretested set of components, all based on the FUIComponentClass class, brings the familiar user interface elements of HTML to the Flash developer’s arsenal. The UI components expose an API that is easy to use and consistent across components.

Prior to Flash MX, you could create movie clips that acted as reusable user-interface controls (a.k.a. Smart Clips), but they were harder to use than Flash’s UI components. You can simply drag UI components from the Components panel onto your interface or create new instances programmatically in ActionScript by using the MovieClip.attachMovie( ) method (assuming the Library contains the desired component symbol).
