Supported HTML Tags

This is a very boring entry, but I want to contribute a little bit to the knowledge out there. I just stumbled by chance over the <LI> bulletpoint tag which looks like it is supported by the htmlText of Flash MX. I...

Fixing Textfield.htmlText Bug

Perhaps you haven't noticed it before, but there is a little bug in the .htmlText property of textfields: whitespaces between html tags are automatically removed. You can prevent that by using &nbsp; instead of spaces, but Casper Schuirink has presented a nice...

More On Page Turn

If you are interested in page turns you might want to have a look at this interactive diagram by Eric Natzke where he illustrates some of the Math involved. What is missing is some of the line intersections, but as Eric says...

Madman Experiments

I must say that this is the most disgusting packaging for Flash experiments that I ever came across. But it's great. And daaark... [Via coolstop]...

Web Speed Simulator

I always wondered why nobody ever built something like this and finally I came across this: xat.com has a tool that can simulate real world internet speed. Well, 99$ is not really cheap for something that simply slows down the connection, but...

How To Make Snow

The closer you get to Christmas the more requests are out there for tutorials on how to create snow with Flash. I guess there are zillions of possibilities, but let me mention just a few. If you know of more, feel free...

FlashSim

Finally it's in the stores: Flash MX for Interactive Simulation by Jonathan Kaye and David Castillo. To my knowledge this book is the first one to cover the area of simulations in Flash. This means you will hear things like "States", "Event-Action-Tables"...

Kinematics

It looks like kinematics in Flash are becoming en vogue again. At least there is this thread on were-here.com which created some interesting results: Bit-101 has created this arm which looks very promising (source code is here). Elrik contributes two demos: this...

It looks like there have been some additions to the Flash blog community: JABBy Panda aka "just another blog by Panda" seems to be focussed on working with components. Флэш Потрошитель or Flash Ripper is a russian Flash Blog, so I cannot...

Too late...

Some weeks ago websites with pageturn effects have been all over the place. All of the sites had one thing in common: the pageturns were keyframe animated. So I started to experiment a little and came up with this. Unfortunately I didn't...

Search Flash

When it comes to search engine indexing, Flash has definitely one big flaw - it doesn't register. Macromedia tries to change that with their search engine SDK, but the question remains if or when Google will use it and on top of...

Pathfinding Class

Grant Skinner has just released the source code for his pathfinding class. The algorithm is not the normal A*, but his own flavour which is speed optimized for flash - as a tradeoff it might fail sometimes for long paths. But, as...
