Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-35070) "for each" not working in XMLList
Date Mon, 11 Apr 2016 16:51:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-35070?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15235467#comment-15235467

Alex Harui commented on FLEX-35070:

I don't know, but it doesn't sound easy.  I also don't know how well the compiler can detect
that a more complex expression on the right hand side is of type XMLList.

An alternative is to add an option to the compiler that generates a warning on every variable
access of type Object and *.  It would show you where you've lost strong-typing in your code.
 I've been told you will be amazed at how much of your code isn't strong-typed.

>          Components: FalconJX
>    Affects Versions: Apache FalconJX 0.6.0
>            Reporter: Harbs
> I don't have a full test case right now, but I believe the following will fail.
> var newList:XMLList = new XMLList();
> newList.appendChild(<foo/>);
> var xmlItem:XML;
> for each(xmlItem in oldList)
>   newList.appendChild(xmlItem);
> If necessary, I can put together a (non)working test case.
