Today, we have another Active Premium tutorial exclusively available to Premium members. This short series of two tutorials takes intermediate-to-advanced developers through the process of building an entire file browser app. If you're feeling confident, read on!

This Premium Tutorial is Filled with Creative Tips

Have you ever wondered how you could create a file browser in Flash? Well, if yes, or you are just eager to learn new stuff including working with Flash and PHP, then this tutorial is just what you need.

We won't just be creating a File browser, we'll be building an entire custom UI. Additionally, we'll be writing several classes, such as code for selecting multiple files and detailed explanation for creating a flexible dialog box class that can be used in other projects.

This is part 1 in a series of 2. Look out for the concluding part to this Premium tut next week!


Please be aware that I'm using a shared server so the preview might not work at all times. Also, I've disabled deletion of files and directories.
