  • How to save files from Flex to your server with PHP

    For my AMDawing I searched a lot for . And all the solutions that I found are too complex in my opinion. I saw all the examples with remote objects and AMFphp or ZendAMF. Finally I found the solution at thinkerlog.com. I think it is the most straight forward solution. This are the basics: First…

  • Augmented Reality

    A few weeks ago I was busy finding a graduate project. And during that time augmented reality looked very interesting. Most of you know what it means, for the others here a small explaining line from wikipedia: Augmented reality (AR) is a field of computer research which deals with the combination of real-world and computer-generated…

  • Draw on 3D object

    Here in Holland you have free news papers that you can read when you consume any kind of  public transportation.  In my childhood when I was bored I took a newspaper and draw all sorts of objects on  photo’s of famous people,  like: glasses, moustaches, beards and acme.

  • Why has AIR file.browseForSave no FileFilter option

    I try to create my own extension with a saved AIR file. The point in doing this is that the user knows what files are created by what program and a file without an extension is just plain ugly. When you save a file in other programs you can choose to overwrite a file (that…

I’m busy building an AIR application that can be used on Windows and Mac OS. I have to take care of the file structure…

  • Direction of the TileList behaves strange

    I stumbled into an incorrect working function of the TileList in Flex. It looks like they swopped a few variables around. If you set the direction of the TileList to horizontal it looks like Flex doesn’t care about the option and just scolls vertical. After that I checked an Adobe quickstart guide to know sure…

  • More playing with 3D and 3D physics engine

    I extended the Flex 3D example of my previous post some more. Now you can drag (left mousebutton) the objects and bounce them into each other. I think the smart visiters will see that it look a little like TileUI from Doug McCune or TileUI copy of Bill White. I tried to make something like…

  • Get full file path in AIR

    Normally if you want a file path in Flex to upload a file you use FileReference() with a browse(). Last week I tried the same technique to get a file dragged from the desktop to my AIR application. After fixing a strange problem the code worked but the next problem appeared to me.
