Interactive Calendar - From

I am superised that haven't see it for a long time.

This is a proof of concept demo for an interactive Flex Calendar component I’ve been putting together in my spare time. I expect to have the code up for download in a couple of days, but in the meantime, here’s a sample app you can use to try it out:

GAE SWF Project - Flash and Flex on Google App Engine

Flash and Flex on Google App Engine The GAE SWF Project is a resource of Flash and Flex-related knowledge specifically aimed at getting you up and running quickly with Google App Engine, a wonderful platform for building and deploying massively-scalable Flash and Flex applications. An equally-important goal is to raise awareness and stimulate discussion in the Flash and Flex communities of web standards and best practices. These include deep linking; better SWF embedding techniques that facilitate the implementation of progressive enhancement; loosely-coupled, well-encapsulated application architecture that separates presentation and business logic; and the use of various high-quality open source libraries and tools. Finally, it is the author's personal opinion that practicality and simplicity are two of Flash's most important assets and, as such, the examples will strive to favor pragmatism over academic purity, simplicity over complexity, and convention over configuration. The GAE SWF Framework, the underpinnings of which you can see in the initial proof of concept Flash 9 client, uses various excellent open source components that are documented in the source code and linked to from the Links list.

Chart DrillDown Animations - From


Flex/Flash is fantastic at animation. But as Mr. Lee (and you know who I’m talking about, True Believes) taught us, with great power comes great responsibility. Our responsibility as developers is to use that power for good (convey context, change, relationship) and not for evil (heavy handed eye candy, delay, destraction). This sample, for example, uses animation to convey what’s happening in a typical OLAP drill down. A drilldown is when the user navigates from some summary information in to examine specific details. Viewing sales figures by month, for example, a user might ‘drill down’ into December to see specific sales figure for each day of December to see what effect Christmas had. Alright, chances are you probably already know what I’m talking about. So before I just jump to the demo, here are a few notes: * These animations are all packaged up as chart effects that you can use on your own apps. See the sample app for details on how to use them. * I’ve tested them out on PieSeries and ColumnSeries. They should work for the other columnar types (HLOC, Candlestick), and stacked columns. In theory they should easily work on bar series as well, although I haven’t filled in the code to drill-up horizontally. Should be an easy task for the reader though..check out the drill down effect for an example. * Yes, they’re still a bit buggy. Specifically, when drilling down there’s an occasional flash when the old columns fade away. I’ll figure that out at some point. So, without further preamble…

Dashboard - From Adobe Develper Center

The dashboard, built by ESRIA, is a demo application which displays data using draggable drill down charts, forms, DataGrids, and links in a pod layout. You can modify layouts by dragging and dropping pods to a different location and minimizing, maximizing, and restoring pod windows. Layout changes are saved using a LocalSharedObject. Layout data is loaded from /data/pods.xml with values in pod.xml indicating which data files to load for a particular pod. You will need the datavisualization.swc to run this application.

Test Regular Expressions Online with RegExr

Open in a new window Regular expressions are archaic-looking, extremely specific, and amazingly helpful for finding the right data, files or whatever else you need. RegEx, a free online regular expression tester, lets you hone your expression language and terms down, giving you a box to put testing text in and highlighting the words that match your query. For users of Mac OS X, Linux, or even Windows with Cygwin installed, this web-based workshop (or desktop version) is a great way to get uninhibited but real practice at file-sifting. RegEx's desktop versions require the Adobe AIR platform installed to run.
