Google Maps API

 

 

  • Type in and search for cities, addresses, and land marks within Flash
  • Different views including satellite imagery
  • Reverse Geo-coding:  move the map and the address of where you are displays on the bottom
  • Added my own interactive layer “Drag Radius”

Launch Flash!see it
The task at hand was to build an “Area Selector” in Flash. You could go to an address, drag a highlight over the area, and then get the coordinates and size. Future plans were to hook into databases with coordinate information and extract other data for marketing purposes.
Currently it shows LAT/LONG/area/radius. Adding the area and radius was not easy. It has to account for the zoom level. So, a 1″ radius could be 1/10 sq Mile, or it could span half of the planet, depending on your zoom level. The other feature I added was Reverse Geo-coding. The center point reveals the address of the building underneath (if there is one). Dragging the map more triggers address lookups on each move.

The Google Maps API for AS3 is here: http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/flash/

You have to sign up for an API key, but its well worth it.

Vandalize

 


 
Launch Flash!see it

  • doodle on pictures using different colors
  • save as jpeg and set compression quality
  • your picture gets placed in the Vandal Hall of Fame where people can see it
  • people can comment on your picture
  • live preview generation
  • several communication methods in it’s own “Vandalize Service”

This was a prototype for a FaceBook app, designed by the UX ( User eXperience) designers at speakTECH back in 2007. I created the back end and front end, making it functional based on some nice specs from the team. The back end was it’s own remoting service called “VandalizeService”.

Portfolio Application

 

 
I was looking for a way to display CS4, CS5, Flex 3, and Flex 4 content all in one contiguous Flash experience. Turns out Flex 4 (FlashBuilder) was the best choice! It has proven very stable compared to CS5 as a swf in swf container environment, and does not seem to have any issues with Flash components. Whenever I had free time, I added more items to the portfolio or more features to the portfolio application.

Launch Flash!see it

Perhaps the biggest piece of programming in my online portfolio is the portfolio application itself. It’s not described anywhere in the portfolio, so I’m doing it here.

Here’s a list of features it has:

  • Database Driven: All portfolio items are assembled in a mysql database with info such as title, description, swf path, etc. From the database, you can choose items in the sliding “accordion” component, or the 3D image wheel – both on the left side.
  • Data Services: Data is fetched using Flash Remoting, I wrote the PHP services that feed my ActionScript structured, binary compressed data
  • Integrated WordPress Blog: Portfolio Items described in the blog are linked to the items in the portfolio, and the blog entries can be read while in the site. Click the “W” icons to see.
  • XML Menu system: I can easily add links and items that trigger AS3 functionality. Also, items can be launched in a JavaScript LightBox just by populating the xml
  • Windowing system: Allows you to view multiple items at once and move them around
  • Layout Control: Sizes to any ( decent ) resolution and automatically adjusts the layout to compensate, even when you resize the browser during viewing
  • 3D Item Selector: A custom PaperVision 3D component I built to select items. Selected items have a yellow 3D polygon above them, and highlighted items use a glow effect.
  • Deep Linking: Using Asual SWFaddress, you can link directly to individual portfolio items such as the Slideshow example: https://arnoldbiffna.s3.amazonaws.com/asd001/index.html#/id43
  • Shadowbox: Some portfolio items launch in a JavaScript box overlay. This allows it to launch html content in a separate window without “leaving” the site
  • Full Screen Mode: Click the “Max” button in the top right corner
  • Cascading Windows & Close All functionality: in the Appearance menu
  • Code Generated Wallpaper: in the Appearance menu. Uses a radial gradient

The structure of the portfolio could be reused to develop a large application where interactive modules are loaded and unloaded as needed. Floating windows and dialog boxes, along with the menu system are all elements of this. The code is an MVC ( Model View Controller ) structure that I find easy to update and build on.

The portfolio was rendered dynamically from the database, following a path of mysql -> PHP -> AMFPHP -> Flex.

INSERT INTO `portfolioFlex` (`ID`, `p_order`, `active`, `p_category`, `p_title`, `p_description`, `p_imgswf`, `p_link`, `swflink`, `launchtext`, `launchbutton`, `skills`, `width`, `height`, `previewID`, `notes`, `creationdate`, `features`, `lockroot`, `blogkey`)

MP3 Player

 

  • Stereo output level display
  • Spectrum Display
  • Volume Control
  • Balance Control
  • Stop, Play, Pause, Previous & Next Track
  • Loop feature
  • Time / position display
  • Flash Remoting based playlist, autogenerated

This version was an extension to the original version I made, adding the spectrum display. To avoid copyright issues, I grabbed some royalty-free music clips off the web and put them in a folder. The PHP getDirectory call in PortfolioService grabs all the mp3s in a folder and returns info about them to generate the playlist and play the music. Launch Flash!see it
