Hi all.

i develop a app that works just fine im windows environment but i am facing a problem with some clients that use other OS.
is there a tool to convert code to flex code once that flex allow us to compile code in several outputs? If not Flex, other that is so versatile as flex?

Thanks in advanced, José Peixoto

Why tool? Let a flex developer earn some bread and beer....Hire a flex guy...

I doubt it. They are very different.

the problem is that write the entire code in flex, starting from Zero, it will take a long time.
I was thinking to convert to C# and from there to Flex or another that may be converted to flex...

Any way... it was worth it to try

in alternative, is there any other programing language that allows to compile in different outputs and that is compatible with (i.e. that can be converted from

I'm not a professional as you can see but i am willing to learn and to improve. This solution is a shortcut that will allow me to evolve later to other programing languages once that i will have ways to compare

VB.Net is heavily reliant on the .Net framework, so you aren't going to get any simple conversion from VB.Net to anything that doesn't run on .Net (C#, F#, IronPython, C++/CLI, etc.), but that won't solve your problem from the sounds of it. You will probably have to rewrite your application, unless you can run it on Mono.

Solution 1

If you're talking about converting a Windows Forms application to Flex, there is no conversion tool. The two application types are very different from each other.

You'll have to rewrite the application in Flex, by hand.

Though, Ensemble puts out a Visual Studio plugin called Tofino, that allows you to write and debug front-end code in Flex. Since Flex does not target the .NET Framework, you cannot directly convert code from VB.NET Flex like you can going from VB.NET to C#.

thanks. it was helpfull.
I knew that it wasn't easy but you alreadyy helped me.

I'll explore Tofino... or, if nothing else works, rewrite the app in flex

thanks once again
