This Flex Control combines the convenience of the Form Layout with the flexibility of the Grid Layout. The standard Flex Form layout is single column. (Although you can add multiple components within a FormItem and specify a horizontal layout direction, this will not align right-hand columns across rows.)

Most complex screens require a multi column layout. The Grid control does not support features of the Form control such as marking form fields as required or optional, and handling error messages.

This control enables 2 or more columns to be specified, and the ability for Form Items to span multiple columns for advanced layout configurations.

See the Wiki for example MXML layout.
