Another example of using robotlegs to create simple flickr search widget/gallery.
Required library: robotlegs-framework-v1.4.0.swc Flickr API used for service
Flash Builder 4 used to run and compile project. update
added “FlickrSelectedImageMediator” for the “FlickrSectedImage” flex custom component.
Moved Component opening/closing logic inside FlickrSelectedImageMediator.
last 2 Weeks I was playing with Robotlegs (yeah, again), before using it for the specific project I decide to make couple of examples to fallow the “right” path and of course get input from community experts. The example we are building here gonna be simple rss reader: input field, load button, result.

The fallowing example shows how to make simple jQuery sliding gallery.
Images will be loaded after request to give flexibility to use/show large amount of images without westing time to preloading them all at once. Continue reading →
Another gallery/slideshow example with jQuery, this time we will load image after user selects one of the controls(next/prev).
We will wait until next image is loaded(main time show loading information) and after make smooth fade in/out transition with our current and new image.
Unlike previous post, in this example we are not loading all images from the beginning, which makes this gallery perfect for using with large amount of images. Continue reading →
The fallowing example shows how to make slideshow of images with fade in/out nice smooth transition. jQuery makes everything easy.
Note that all images are defined at the start(they will load all together from the beginning) and while this will work for small amount of images it might be wrong solution for gallery of 10 images or more.
Example also uses corner jQuery plugin to round image corners. Continue reading →
Was playing with jQuery couple of days, remember me old good as2
Building simple rollover navigation with fade in/out is pretty simple.
Example is done based on the image ( click to open in the new window ):
I remember ~5-6 years ago when I decide to make my first flash components using actionscript only, scaling image slideshow was one of them.
I got lots of feedback, comments and after that I start my freelance flash development carrier.
In fact, the slideshows, galleries are the flash elements that I’m using almost in all flash projects/websites, so I think it might be useful to share some code for scaling image gallery. Continue reading →
pause() method is added, example .fla file is updated.
As far as I know there is no way for adding cue points in flash Sound, but using SoundChannel.position property we can check playhead current position and simulate cue points for Sound.
So I wrote simple utility Class for simulating cue points for Sound Class In AS3.
CursorManager is simple as3 class that lets you change cursor at runtime.
Example uses also Event.MOUSE_LEAVE event to hide/remove custom cursor when mouse leaves flash display area(with combination of MouseEvent.MOUSE_MOVE to show back cursor). Continue reading →
Here is the example of easing, reusable preloader that I am using in some of my projects.
The general idea is to tween the loader bar to the next point instead of just jumping to it.
The easiest way to achieve that effect is using one of the tweening libraries. Continue reading →
