FlexMapTools and git issues

So I had an oops moment when apparently I navigated to my local git directory using all lowercase letters and pushed my commits this evening. Although the folder structure in my local repo and the folder structure when I pulled my repo from github were identical, the github page had a FlexMapTools and a flexmaptools…


F’ing with FMap in FlexMapTools

I’m going to try to use the next few blog posts to go over how I use the tools I’ve provided in the FlexMapTools toolbox I put up on github. The first is the FMap component, which extends the ESRI Map component. This component started as a way to control the position of the ESRI…


FlexMapTools for ESRI Flex API

For a couple of years now, I have been working with the ESRI Flex API to build Flex Mapping applications at work. Over that time, I like to think I have learned quite about programming and Flex/Flash in general. I would consider myself an intermediate and I continue to learn more everyday (more like shoehorn…


Custom GeocodeProcessor with Swiz

One of the interesting features of Swiz 1.0 (still pre-release) is the ability to create custom metadata processors. To get more familiar with the idea, check this docs page. Note that some items from the docs has changed, such as you no longer extend MetadataProcessor, but extend BaseMetadataProcessor. There is a Yahoo Finance Processor, a…


AS3-Signals in Swiz, keepin’ it simple

So, previously I had talked about using Swiz and AS3-Signals (Swignalz!). My example was crude and honestly, it was not good. Ben Clinkinbeard did a much better job of showing how easy it was to drop some AS3-Signals around with Swiz. This past week, I have been tinkering around with a project that will be…


Swignalz!

Recently I decided to take a crack at AS3 Signals. Robert Penner has done some really nice work putting signals together. AS3 Signals is basically meant to replace using custom events to dispatch your payload around. I’m not sure I’m entirely sold on the concept of introducing another API into my apps, but I was…


Look ma, no wires!

Recently, I have been using Swiz on a couple of smaller projects that are in the works. Swiz is a great little framework that is incredibly light weight. You can see some great examples using Swiz as well as some good discussion in the google groups. I am still using 0.6.4, but the 1.0 alpha…


>ESRI Flex Map with Robotlegs

Well, I’m not really one to leave well enough alone and I just had to give another Flex framework a try for my ESRI Flex mapping needs. My latest victim was Robotlegs. If you look at my earlier blog postings, you might have seen me mention that my first Flex framework was Cairngorm. I didn’t…
