Wanna see my AIR Derby entry?

vizX LogoWell…. OK. I was planning on releasing it to the public sooner or later and with the deadline for the AIR derby being tomorrow night (Sept 5th), I don’t think it’s going to hurt to go ahead and tip my hand by putting it out there now.

So without further ado, here is my entry into the Adobe AIR Developer Derby:

Application Name: vizX

Application Description: vizX is a visual XML editor which displays nodes in a tree structure on the left while details of the selected node are displayed on the right. The details include the name and text value of the node, its attributes and the ability to add child nodes and new attributes.

Application Download:

  • 1. If you don’t have the AIR runtime installed, you’ll need to download and install it in order to use vizX. You can get the installer for your particular system (OSX or Windows) from this link.
  • 2. Download and install vizX from as either a .zip file or an .air file.
  • 3. Let me know what you think if you get a chance to check it out.

You can also use the “Install Now” button below (Thanks Doug).

Whoa. You need to install Adobe Flash Player.

  1. Best of luck in the AIR derby. You should also consider adding an “Install Now” button to help non-techies install your app. See my blog post for details. http://olddougnewtricks.blogspot.com/2007/08/using-swfobject-and-air-install-badge.html

    In the case of vizX, the script code would be:

    Whoa. You need to install Adobe Flash Player.

    var so = new SWFObject(“badge.swf”, “badge”, “217”, “180”, “6.0.65”, “#FFFFFF”);
    so.addVariable( “appname”, “vizX” );
    so.addVariable( “appurl”, “http://flash.fincanon.com/dl/vizX.air” );
    so.addVariable( “imageurl”, “http://flash.fincanon.com/wp-images/vizXLogo.jpg” );
    so.addVariable( “airversion”, “1.0.M4” );
    so.addVariable( “buttoncolor”, “008811” );
    so.addVariable( “messagecolor”, “000000” );


  2. Thanks Doug! I’ve added the Install Now badge as an option.

  3. You have no idea how much time you just saved me with this. Thanks.

  4. Awesome! Thanks Rob! Did Klok win the derby yet?

  5. Not anymore supported by the current air framwork?

  6. Hi Chamo. It will be supported again soon. I’ve been extremely busy with my two children (one is 3 and the other is 1), we just moved to a new house, I switched jobs, etc, etc, excuse excuse. Anyway, things are slowing to a normal pace again and I’ve got a lot of catching up to do (and one of those things is to update vizX).
