Adobe RIA Developer Summit in India

Posted by | September 9, 2008 .

  Having jumped on the RIA bandwagon only a few months ago, it is understandable that I haven’t heard about the Adobe RIA Leadership Summit (Oct, 2007) and the Adobe RIA Architect Summit (Apr, 2008) held in Bangalore, India. Both would probably have gone six feet over my head. But missing all news about the Adobe […]

Keeping rotated content clipped

Posted by | July 22, 2008 .

Every container in Flex by default clips its content, when that exceeds the boundaries of the container. Clipping appears to be a computational behaviour that kicks in once a display object exceeds the container boundaries either due to its position coordinates (x,y) or its size (width, height) .

In cases where data are edited in a Flex client and subsequently have to be saved on a server, one has to manage the frequency of those server calls. One way of doing this, is adding an extra step, for the user to save the changes made. So image you have an editable data grid, […]

Enhanced search string ComboBox

Posted by | July 3, 2008 .

The standard behaviour of the Flex framework combobox, is to adjust its selected option as the user types in characters. However values are looked up only by the first character, i.e. user types in ‘a’ and the first option starting with ‘a’ is selected.

Driving Simulation on Google Flash Map

Posted by | June 15, 2008 .

Katsuomi Kobayashi has developed an interesting driving simulation using Google Maps API for Flash. This is his second driving simulation, the first was simply a flash toy and a time-waster that I admit cost my previous employer some productivity. Kobayashi was trying to develop more complicated courses but found ready made courses in Google maps. […]
