Mint.com uses FlexLib components

James Ward already had a little writeup about Mint.com using Flex for some of their spending habit charting stuff, but what’s even cooler to me is that they’re using a few FlexLib components on the site. I got an email from Jason Putorti, a Flex dev with Mint, letting me know that he’s using the DraggableSlider component, and I took a look and also saw that they’re using the ScrollableArrowMenu. Here’s a screenshot of both the components in use:

The menu showing the list of cities there is the ScrollableArrowMenu and above that there’s the DraggableSlider that lets you select the date range you’re using for the chart. Sweet!
