AS3 Transform Tool for scaling, rotating components containing text controls in Flex
Author : Raman Date : April 23, 2009
Hello Everybody, Got a chance to play with the Matrix class in as3 for creating a custom transform tool for scaling and rotating components containing text controls like the TextArea in Flex. I used the free Senocular’s Transform tool available but it scales the target component using the Matrix scaling resulting in scaling the text inside the text control. So I used the Matrix class for rotating the tool and changed the width and height of the target by using transform matrix of the target.

Added a simple example of rotating a button control using transform matrix with source.
