Any plans out there for an AS3 Photobucket library?

by on May.01, 2008, under Adobe AIR, Adobe Flex

I’ve been working with the AS3 Flickr library trying to make MyStylez cooler with some Flickr + AIR drag and drop goodies and was thinking I’d eventually try to work in the Photobucket API too.

I haven’t seen any ActionScript library projects yet, but then again I’ve been sitting in the dark for two weeks writing code and staying away from the sun…very healthy indeed. You may have noticed I didn’t exactly go to town on the blogging either, pardon my absense :) as I’ve been wholly absorbed with so much code flying through my neurons I feel like my head could split.

Does anyone know of any plans to crank out an AS3 lib for the Photobucket API? If so, I might want to jump on that one.

What would you like to see in Attest 2.0?

by on Dec.28, 2007, under Actual RIA info, Adobe Flex

I’ve had some very cool feedback on Attest 1.0, and got some great ideas from other developers on how to improve on Attest 2.0 for the Adobe Flex 3 Developer Certification Exam when that comes along eventually. I’m compiling a list of features that I personally would like to see, but if you’ve used Attest and have some feedback, fill me in! I want to hear any ideas that would make Attest kick some butt!

Attest - Adobe Flex Certification Practice Exam

Some ideas that I had, as well as ideas from other developers using Attest are:

  • Learning Mode:
    • Should allow user to choose amount of questions for custom tests. This way the user may only have 10 mins to spare, but could still create a custom test (5-10 questions for example)
    • Ability to check the answer during viewing of the questions for learning mode only. Instant feedback would be nice.
  • Test Mode:
    • Same ability to choose custom number of questions and time for each test, as well as the premade tests.
    • Possibly view the results per question as stated above, rather than go to a different results page.

Programmatic Button Skins in Flex 3

by on Dec.17, 2007, under Actual RIA info, Adobe Flex

The Flex CookBook recipe call prompted me to pull together some more generic, but useful code samples, so I figured I’d post them here and keep my fingers crossed that a recipe or two slip into the book unnoticed :)

I’ll explain a little recipe I use for programmatic skinning on buttons in particular on some projects. If you need fast, extendable, easy on the bandwidth buttons then this one is highly useful. To start off, I picked buttons because they’re the most generic examples of how to use programmatic skin, and probably the most likely target for clean, simple skins. In the future, I’ll post more skins for other components.
