    AS3 101: The Display List – BasixPreview
    4 shares
    In this sixth installment of AS3 101, we'll be studying topics related to the "Display List", Flash's rendering system. With a solid understanding of how to program the Display List, a whole world of dynamic possibilities open up. You will no longer be tied to static display structure that you create on the timeline in the IDE, but you can create and destroy MovieClips (and more) with code. There is much to know, so we'd better get started. Our ultimate goal is a wall of clickable images (go and check out the demo). While simple, it introduces many Display List programming techniques.

With that said, we can all agree on one thing if we're truly honest with ourselves: this closure is long overdue! Read More…

    Create a Sparkling Bomb Mouse Cursor with FLiNT ParticlesPreview image
    This is a beginner to intermediate level tutorial in which I will explain the basics of the FLiNT particle system. We'll also take a look at how to create a sparkling bomb mouse cursor. It's something I created and used in a memory game which you can check out here if you're curious. I'm assuming you have knowledge of ActionScript 3.0, basic object oriented programming and setting up the classpath. This is all knowledge that easily can be found on Activetuts+ however, so don't be discouraged if you don't know it all just yet. With that said, let's start making particles!Read More…

    Control a Flex Video Application Using Mouse GesturesPreview
    Almost all PC user interfaces are designed around the notion of moving a cursor and clicking on objects. Buttons, menus, combo boxes, lists and every other standard UI control work in this way. The mouse is used to position the cursor, and the position of the cursor is used to perform an action. It’s a design paradigm that has worked well, but lately new technologies like touch screens and motion sensors (think the Wii) have challenged the notion of using a mouse, or even having a cursor on the screen at all..Read More…
