Flex and Ajax

They made me a movie star. ADC had the guts to release some of my videos. If you can get along with my spectacular stammering and pass the feeling of pity or convulsive laughing this might be a good starting tutorial for using Flex and Ajax together.



Sorry for taking me so long. Here is a link to the archived project file. To import this project you should right click in the Flex Navigator, choose Import… -> Flex Project and then choose the zip file and follow the import wizard steps.

Adding Desktop functionality to Web Applications (My MAX Milan DW + AIR sample)

December 10th, 2008 Comments off

One of my MAX Milan session was on how you develop AIR applications using Dreamweaver CS4. During this talk I’ve took a web application (actually I copy paste a sample of using the MSN Messenger JavaScript API) and add it some Desktop capabilities. So the little sample AIR MSN messenger now display notification when your friends will change their status message. The notification library I used is as3notificationlib done by Christian Cantrell so you can see how easy is to call Flash code from JavaScript inside the AIR runtime.

You can also test the msg.html (sandbox/msg.html) file inside a browser (doesn’t seems to work on Mozilla, or on my Mozilla). The code that pushes the notification in AIR is located at line 204 and is the only modification that I’ve done to the original MSN Messenger sample.

You can download the code from here.
