Almost done here at Flash Forward. Just waiting for our last session before packing up and heading to the airport.
Its been fun, informative, and exhausting.
The whole conference was asked to post images to flickr.com tagged as Flashforward.
Here’s the link: http://flickr.com/photos/tags/flashforward/
I contributed a few, but they’re from my Razor. http://flickr.com/photos/digiscott/1412922913/in/photostream/
I found a great tutorial on making Flex and Flash work together.
Here’s how it works…
You can declare a function to take place on the flex SWFLoader component’s “complete” event.
in that function, you can view / edit the contents of the Flash 9 SWF that was loaded via the content property for your SWFLoader. Ex: mySWFLoader.content["element"].
This is particularly useful for allowing an SWF to set the size of the object it is loaded into, trapping events from within the loaded SWF, etc.
Thanks to Hasan Otuome for the original article over at actionscript.org
Not sure how many people have discovered bubbl.us
It is a brainstorming / mindmapping web-app that lets you share / collaborate with other users.
I’ve started using it for logic-diagrams instead and sharing them with dev + design teams at work.
I needed to recreate my previous post about finding the filename for a swf’s main timeline for AS3. The problem stemmed from the removal of the “_root” and “_url” properties in Actionscript 3.
Here’s the revised code:’
var myFileNameArray:Array = new Array();
// get this SWF's filename
myFileName = this.loaderInfo.url;
myFileNameArray = myFileName.split("/");
num = myFileNameArray.length;
thisSWF = myFileNameArray[num-1];
I’ve finally caught up with the rest of the world and posted a flickr album.
So far it has the wedding, and Cancun, and Chichen-itza pictures. More will have to await my bandwidth renewal at the end of the month.
I’m also toying with a “random image” widget for my sidebar that will pull from my flickr albums – more on that when it’s finished.
