As the client exists as a flex-version for browser preview and a AIR runtime version on the Panels, i had to come up with a solution providing a minimalistic interface with minimal code changes needed.

Only one issue popped up: You need to move up framework.swc under <Project>/Properties/Flex Build Path/Library Path/Flex 3 to be above datavisualisation.swc to properly resolve runtime [...]

On a first try, i used a Canvas to hold the elements and a class derived from UIComponent as element. Adding 1K of children rendered the application almost completely unresponsive. I [...]
