Using MX effects

In MX, an effect defines the visual or audible change to the target component, and a trigger initiates the effect. A trigger is an action, such as a mouse click on a component, a component getting focus, or a component becoming visible. The MX effects are shipped in the mx.effects package.

While Flex ships with both Spark and MX effects, Adobe recommends that you use the Spark effects when possible.
