The new Flex Viewer is even better

Posted by Moxie Zhang | March 26, 2010 .

I was sick and was not able to present the new Flex Viewer at the ESRI Dev Summit. My colleagues Bjorn and Mansour(@mraad) did a very good job put the new viewer under the spotlight. So far I’ve heard is, EVERYONE LOVES IT!

The ESRI Ireland folks post a fairly comprehensive blog entry to describe what the new Flex Viewer is. I have to quote what it said in the end:

The existing Viewer is great. The new Viewer is even better - that’s progress.

Thank you the Ireland friends! BTW, they’ve done very impressive works customizing the existing Viewer. I’m very proud of them!

Here are some comments I’ve got from tweets:

@cageyjames The new flex viewer is exactly how it should be. The old wacky zooming window bubbles is dead!

[come on, the old on is not that bad:-) It's just got tired]

@geeknixta Looks like the Flex team’s been listening. Good enhancements to flex viewer. Also, now demoing data extraction. #DevSummit

[Of cause we do. I even joined the team.]

@dafkobyte It seems that customizing the look & feel of the Flex Viewer will be easier now. #devsummit

[You got that right my friend. That's a major focus of the new viewer design and dev]

I’ll be honest with you, what you’ve seen at the #DevSummit was small portion of what on my mind. I was a bit of surprised by the overwhelmingly positive feedback, even though it’s indeed very encouraging. The #DevSummit is kind of coming out of shadow session. The biggest splash will be in the coming UC. Just wait and see.

    you have a bug:

    function sm2(){
    setTimeout(”setInterval( ‘flashtext()2′, 1500 )”, 2000);
    }

    I think should be:

    function sm2(){
    setTimeout(”setInterval( ‘flashtext2()’, 1500 )”, 2000);
    }

    Browser gives the error:
    missing ; before statement
    [Break on this error] flashtext()2
