Build a RSS Reader in Flex



We are going to take this RSS feed and build a RSS Reader in Flex that, by default, will return the last 30 days of content. We will provide the user with a search capability to filter the results from Community MX which will display in a data grid the Title, Category and Publish Date. The data grid will give the user the ability to sort the columns headers as well as rearrange the column orders. Once the user highlights and selects an article, we will display the description of that article along with the link to where the full article can be found.
