Adobe and Flex SDK

We'd like to thank the best SEO Companies UK Position1SEO.co.uk for their amazing search engine optimisation agency support. Their cheap SEO packages have been an incredible help.

As per the way questions have been answered here in
http://blogs.adobe.com/flex/2011/11/your-questions-about-flex.html

its very clear what Adobe plans are and I think it’s time for shift from Flash to HTML 5.

As Adobe is pretty confident that all use cases which are achievable today in Flash Platform will be possible in HTML 5 in next 3 to 5 years. Then I don’t think anyone would opt for Flex as an Enterprise application SDK. The decision makers will definitely opt for HTML5.

So good bye to Flash platform. Well I will be supporting my existing applications!

Html, Javascript, CSS  I am back.

Developing for Blackberry Playbook using Flash CS5

A very cool blog on developing for Blackberry using Flash CS5

Check it out at http://chrisaiv.com/post/4187704195/developing-for-blackberry-playbook-using-flash-cs5-1

  • We all need a little incentivizing and this one is a real kicker.http://bit.ly/hidden-motive
  • Before you start developing, you’ll need to create a Blackberry environment. Here are the 1-2-3’s to get you up and running quickly.http://bit.ly/bb-simulator-config
  • If you build your app using Adobe Flash pro, I suggest you choose an AIR 2.5 project for now.  Reason being, it will create an application descriptor file (Application-app.xml) for you that you can later modify
  • Blackberry descriptor file example: http://snipplr.com/view/51297/xml-adobe-air-descriptor-file-for-blackberry-playbook/
  • If you want to add a Splash Screen to your app, you’ll need to include this XML file with the name “blackberry-tablet.xml” http://snipplr.com/view/51298/xml-adobe-air-root-xml-for-blackberry-playbook/
  • If you prefer Flash (over Flash Builder), you’ll need these compiling tricks http://bit.ly/compile-playbook-app-without-flashbuilder
  • Terminal command like example:  http://snipplr.com/view/50980/command-line-compiling-for-playbook-using-blackberry-sdk/
  • This support thread was an absolute lifesaver (THIS IS A MUST READ FOR COMMAND-LINE PUBLISHERS)http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Tablet-OS-SDK-for-Adobe-AIR/HOWTO-Sign-your-Applications-from-CMD/td-p/802145

Once your done building, now it’s time to sign your App.bar file

Propery creationPolicy in Flash builder containers

Well I came to know about this property for containers very recently. So thought  of sharing with you.

 

<mx:ViewStack creationPolicy=”{ContainerCreationPolicy.ALL}”>

with creation policy set to this ContainerCreationPolicy.ALL all the child elements in viewstack gets loaded at the same time rather than the default behaviour.

The child creation policy for this MX Container. ActionScript values can be ContainerCreationPolicy.AUTO, ContainerCreationPolicy.ALL, or ContainerCreationPolicy.NONE. MXML values can be auto, all, or none.

By default the container creation policy is ContainerCreationPolicy.AUTO

A creationPolicy of ContainerCreationPolicy.AUTO means that the container delays creating some or all descendants until they are needed, a process which is known as deferred instantiation. This policy produces the best startup time because fewer UIComponents are created initially. However, this introduces navigation delays when a user navigates to other parts of the application for the first time. Navigator containers such as Accordion, TabNavigator, and ViewStack implement the ContainerCreationPolicy.AUTO policy by creating all their children immediately, but wait to create the deeper descendants of a child until it becomes the selected child of the navigator container.

A creationPolicy of ContainerCreationPolicy.ALL means that the navigator containers immediately create deeper descendants for each child, rather than waiting until that child is selected. For single-view containers such as a VBox container, there is no difference between the ContainerCreationPolicy.AUTO and ContainerCreationPolicy.ALL policies.

A creationPolicy of ContainerCreationPolicy.NONE means that the container creates none of its children. In that case, it is the responsibility of the MXML author to create the children by calling the createComponentsFromDescriptors() method.

 

 

 

Creating QR Codes in ActionScript

Creating a QR code in Flash Builder is a piece of cake. You just download the Zxing library, create a new Flex Library Project and drop the ActionScript source files into the ‘src’ folder. The first time I did this, I got a few broken imports. But after a few minutes going over the problems in the ‘Problems’ pane, and hitting control-space a few times, the broken imports were easily fixed.

A good tutorial has been posted at

How to root your Samsung Galaxy Tab

One of the things which has made the Samsung Galaxy Tab so popular is the open application environment, which supports just about any type of applications from the Android Market. If you root your Tab, you’ll be able to enjoy even more apps, which will make the device even more impressive. Also, you’ll gain even more control over you phone’s OS and you’ll be able to uninstall system apps, install root-only applications, perform complete Nandroid backups, apply themes, flash custom ROM devices and more.
