Flex 3 to Flex 4 Migration Chronicles: III

Error #1053: Illegal override of SolidFill in com.degrafa.paint.SolidFill.

Flex 3 code:
< degrafa:Surface verticalCenter="0" horizontalCenter="0">

< degrafa:fills>
< paint:SolidFill id="blue" color="#62ABCD"/>

< degrafa:strokes>
< paint:SolidStroke id="black" color="#000000" alpha="1" weight="3"/>

< degrafa:GeometryGroup>
< geometry:Circle fill="{blue}" stroke="{black}" radius="150"/>

Attempt 1: Get a Flex 4 compatible Degrafa swc from

Result 1: There isn’t one… yet. Greg Drove of the Degrafa dev team has said that a Flex 4 swc is coming, but no word as to when.

Attempt 2: Create a in AS3 to use in place of the com.degrafa.paint.SolidFill.

< fx:Script>
var blue:SolidColor = new SolidColor( 0x62ABCD, 3);

Result 2: Fail. SolidColor and IGraphicsFill are not interchangeable. You get ‘Error #1053: Illegal override of SolidFill in com.degrafa.paint.SolidFill.’

Attempt 3: Recreate the entire Degrafa surface in using Spark.

< s:Graphic horizontalCenter="0" verticalCenter="0">
< s:Ellipse width="300" height="300">
< s:fill>
< s:SolidColor id="blueFxg" color="#62ABCD"/>

< s:stroke>
< s:SolidColorStroke color="#000000" weight="3"/>

Result 3: Success! This was the fail safe: the most work, guaranteed results, and kinda boring.
