Flex Programming Tips of the Week 0806d

Posted by Charles | June 28, 2008 .

Skin Flex with Flex 3 and CS3 – The reason you are doing Flex is not because you can’t resist the appealing of ActionScript, over Java, C# and all sorts of languages, or even Flex Builder. It’s because Flex offers you the sky as the limit to express your creativity. If you are a visual person and like your Flex to stand out, learn how to skin it. This tutorial is a good starter.

Flex Needs Some New Thinking – Can’t agree more with the author. What we’ve seen with Flex, in terms of programming, are pretty much bunch of clones of the Java bodies, which is a doubtable place to emulate. All those MVC heavy duty based-on-design-pattern-and-fatty-the-client-with-many-layers-of-layers stuffs is just starting adding burden to Flex. Without other options they are the necessary evils we have to take and live with. However, new thinking is needed indeed.

Online Payment with Flex – Flex world is not a volunteers’ world. Sometime you need an app to make doughes. This post doesn’t give too much substance but it’s a good starter to exploring options.

JavaScript AIR Application – A big chunk of AIR’s strength is to work with JavaScript and easily turn a existing JavaScript to be on AIR. The post is an example.

Flex 3 on Rails 2 – Flex on Rails is my favorite topic. This DZone card is a free PDF based on the book Flexible Rails by Peter Armstrong.

Make Flex Chart Interactive – Chart is pretty but pretty face is not good enough for interactive application. That’s why we bring up this example to demonstrate that Flex chart itself could be as well a rich playground for your creative spirit. Play this demo and see for yourself.

Have a good weekend and remember to subscribe Flex RIA!
