TexFlex09 Spark Skinning files

TexFlex 09Well, I admit it took me entirely too long to get these files uploaded and I apologize to anyone who may have been waiting to get them. For those that weren’t waiting, the files I’m talking about are the files from the Spark Skinning session held by me and Chris Long at TexFlex09 back in November.

If you visit my TexFlex09 page, you’ll find a few things there including links to the two examples and a link to download a zip containing Chris’s PowerPoint and two Flex Project files (one for each example). One important thing to note is the Flex SDK build number used in the examples.

Again, sorry for the long delay in making the files available. Enjoy!

I’ve just posted the follow up to my first article on InsideRIA. Last time I wrote about getting started with Spark skins and we created a button. This time we add transitions between the states of that button.

Go check it out and let me know what you think.

My InsideRIA debut

I finished up my first blog post for InsideRIA this morning and thought I’d share on here as well. The topic I decided to cover is “Getting started with Spark skins”. I hope it helps someone out and I look forward to posting more on InsideRIA in the future.
