To HK bloggers: Adobe AIR Developer Derby

Filed under: Flash Events — betaruce @ 2:54 pm

This is probably one of the hottest news recently.

If you are >18yo and you are a HK citizen, you are eligible to enter the Adobe AIR Developer Derby.

You can create an Adobe AIR application (aka Apollo) and there are several categories to classify your work.

The prize is definitely amazing, which include:

  • One Mac Pro 8-core system with 4 GB RAM and 1.5 TB storage
  • Two Dell 2707WFP 27-inch widescreen monitors
  • One Sony PlayStation 3
  • One $200 gift certificate
  • One Herman Miller Aeron chair
  • One pair of Bose QuietComfort 3 noise canceling headphones
  • One copy of Adobe Flex Builder 3, Macintosh edition
  • One copy of Adobe Creative Suite 3 Master Collection for Macintosh
  • A trip and conference pass to the Adobe MAX 2007 annual user conference

etc etc….

Is there anyone in HK planning to enter that competition?

Thanks for all the support.

PhotoFlip - Create a flippable album and put on your site

Filed under: My Flash Programs — betaruce @ 4:10 pm

I have converted my previous pageflip program into one that allow people to load in their photos from external source. I build this website which allow people to define some variables (e.g. page colors, album title, etc), generate codes and paste to their site easily.

Here is an example which load in my Flickr photo set.

AS tips: \ in String

Filed under: Using Flash, Actionscript — betaruce @ 2:01 am

If there is "\" in a String variable, it will be "deleted" automatically and immediately (since "\" is usually used to represent something e.g. "\n" means a line break), and you won't be able to replace it e.g. with regular expression. To overcome this, you may use "\\".

  1. var link:String="C:\Program Files\Adobe";
  2. trace(link);
  3. // ouput --> C:Program FilesAdobe
  5. var link2:String="C:\\Program Files\\Adobe";
  6. trace(link2);
  7. // ouput --> C:\Program Files\Adobe

However, if the value is taken from a textfield (either dynamic or input textfield), the "\" will still remain.

  1. // There is a dynamic text field on stage
  2. // with value "C:\Program Files\Adobe"
  4. trace(txtField.text)
  6. // output --> C:\Program Files\Adobe

My Apollo app: PhotoFlip

Filed under: My Flash Programs — betaruce @ 1:08 am

I have converted my pageflip program, which was written in AS1, into AS3, and integrate into an Apollo application PhotoFlip.

The app allows you to type in the full link to a local folder containing your photos and display it in the book-like album.

Download the .air file

This is still the alpha version (so not much function besides flipping), but I think the pageflip program is better being used as a web rather than a desktop application. I will convert it to a web app which can load in photos from various source e.g. Facebook, Flickr, etc, and allow user to put it to their blog.
