If you are writing your own Flex application, you can use Multigraph as a component in your application. To do so, first download the Multigraph Flex Component library file, named Multigraph-*.swc (where * is the version number), from http://www.multigraph.org/download. If you are using Flex Builder, add this SWC file to your project library path; if you are using the Flex SDK, use the relevant options to add the file to your mxmlc command.
In your application, you can create a Multigraph graph using the
tag in your mxml file. This tag takes an attribute called
which is the name or URL of the mugl file for your graph. For example:
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" xmlns:multigraph="multigraph.*" horizontalAlign="left" paddingLeft="0" paddingTop="0" paddingBottom="0" paddingRight="0"> <multigraph:Multigraph muglfile="graph.xml"/> </mx:Application>
Unless your mugl file is specified as a URL to a different server, be sure to deploy your mulgl file to your server along with your application's SWF file.
Note that when using the Multigraph component in a Flex application you do not need to create the HTML file described in Quick Start or Creating Multigraph Web Pages, and you do not need to deploy Multigraph to your web server separately from your application. The Multigraph SWC file, which is compiled into your application, includes everything that Multigraph needs to work in your application, with the exception of your mugl file(s).
Multigraph component extends the
mx.containers.VBox object, so it inherits
all the tag attributes of that object, which may be used
to further control its appearance and behavior.
