Graphics in Flex 3 and Flex 4 has posted another article from my book Flex 4 Fun. Check out Graphics in Flex 3 and Flex 4 for a comparison of drawing shapes in Flex 3 code versus using the new graphics classes and tags in Flex 4.

Hello Chet.

Your book has clarified number of things for me. Thank you indeed.

I have a question regarding masking.
Once the mask is applied I loose the opportunity to interact with the object being masked - the mask is on top of it.
Is there a workaround for that?

@Igor: Sorry, I don't know this off-hand and would have to play with masks to see how it works (which I won't have a chance to do right now).

Looking forward to your suggestions.

@IB: Hmm, let me clarify: I don't have time to do this investigation, and probably won't for the forseeable future. You would be far better off (in general, not just for this one question) posting such questions on one of the Adobe Flex forums, or on the flexcoders Yahoo group; there are lots of Flex developers (Adobe and non-Adobe) that can help.
