This is my latest experiment which I’ve named the “PeekPanel”. I saw this type of animation done on my phone and figured it would be a cool way to hide options or preferences in an application. It borrows the look and feel from the FlexBook/PageFlip components already out there, but instead of simulating a book, this… Read More »
This is a video of a prototype I put together a while back. It is a system to monitor incoming airline flight information that I wrote using Livecycle Data Services and UI components I scavenged and modified from the Flex Interface Guide site and the Network Monitor demo. Incoming JMS messages containing flight information are… Read More »
This demo shows my initial attempt at using Degrafa skinning. I wanted to customize the tiles in the list so that they would look unique and also provide a nifty way of displaying a list of options for the selected tile. You can see the result by clicking on the lower right corner of each… Read More »
Ever since Doug McCune first showed what could be accomplished when you combine Flex with physics and 3D in his TileUI project, I’ve been curious in learning how he did it. He hasn’t posted the source yet and rather than wait for him to give up the goods, I figured I’d try to break down… Read More »
This version is not nearly as cool as the previous one I posted. It doesn’t have any of the cool selection or stacking features and there is no 3D in this version. It was just a test app that I built to experiment with FOAM. While I was ripping off Doug’s TileUI project that I showed in… Read More »
Here is a Flex list component that animates the rows when an item is selected. There are also animations for the ‘new’ and ‘delete’ operations. It is one of the first Flex components that I wrote and I posted this example a few months ago, but it was before I joined the MXNA aggregator so… Read More »
I’ve been refining my custom Flex component development for a while but I still smile when I come across someone’s definition of the basics that makes what I’ve already learned even more understandable. I came across Mike Nimer’s post about slides from the Flex Camp in Chicago and after reading through them I figured I’d… Read More »
This is my first Flex example that I’m posting on my blog. It is a custom list component which animates when an item is selected. There are also animations for the ‘new’ and ‘delete’ operations.
