Flex 4 Gumbo Custom Spark Layout: Paged Layout

September 16th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Update: For the final version of the PagedLayout source, please visit Part 3. I am intrigued by the possibilities of the new layout architecture in the Flex 4 framework (currently in beta, code named Gumbo). I have seen some really neat stuff materializing already: Evtim’s WheelLayout and FlowLayout, Andrew Trice’s CircularLayout, and Ryan Campbell’s collection of […]

I spent my Memorial Day evening setting up a PaperVision 3D project to serve as a demo for a customer and I just so happened to save the project as I was getting the basics implemented.  I thought it would make a perfect blog post for those just getting started with PV3D. The project covers […]

URLLoader Caching Nightmares

January 11th, 2009 · 4 Comments

Why people are still using Internet Explorer 6 (or any version for that matter) is beyond me; but recently when developing a trending application for a company that only supports IE6 I ran into the age-old caching issue.  Normally, I would add a random number at the end of the URL string, however, this application […]
