Convenient AS3 Positioning Class

I'm sure I'm not the only new-to-AS3 programmer who longed for the convenience of HTML. In HTML, everything you put on the page spreads out and covers the viewing area.

Not so with ActionScript. In ActionScript 3, you must position each object manually by setting its x and y coordinates. It's precise, but it's a pain when you just want all your interface buttons visible. 

Enter Styler 0.1! This convenient class allows you to position objects relative to each other, more like you would with HTML. It's pretty simple to use, and its behavior is pretty easy to predict. You can download it, see some examples, and a try out a demo at my site. I hope it makes your life easier!
