Basic Tag Cloud OOP AS 3.0 - 3. TagCloud - Flash Tutorials - Flash Components This class generates the cloud tag based on the tags inside the array that we've filled it with some words. The workflow of this class is as follows. And array is filled with words then we count the number of words ( without the repeating ones ). Based on the count we are creating our tags. An observation has to be made regarding the size of the tag. Once we've created the tag we are placing it on the scene. To see how the code behaves just press CTRL+Enter and test the movie. Thanks for checking out this tutorial and hope you found it useful an easy to follow. Visit my portfolio to see what else I'm working on. Techload
A simple guide to 9-patch for Android UI | @radley While I was working on my first Android app, I found 9-patch (aka 9.png) to be confusing and poorly documented. After a little while, I finally picked up on how it works and decided to throw together something to help others figure it out. Basically, 9-patch uses png transparency to do an advanced form of 9-slice or scale9. The guides are straight, 1-pixel black lines drawn on the edge of your image that define the scaling and fill of your image. By naming your image file name.9.png, Android will recognize the 9.png format and use the black guides to scale and fill your bitmaps. Here’s a basic guide map: As you can see, you have guides on each side of your image. The black guide lines are cut-off/removed from your image – they won’t show in the app. Your guides must be solid black (#000000). Also you should keep in mind that remaining area of the one-pixel outline must be completely transparent. *(updated 1/2012) This is actually a “fix” in the latest dev kit.
Fresh Free High-Quality Icon Sets Advertisement The most important aspect of designing an individual icon is that it has to be instantly recognizable, you have to know its function, and you need to know exactly what it is. If you are designing a set, the actual design becomes a lot harder, the designer has to face two initial challenges: each icon they design has to be individual and distinctive from the other, and, they also have to have similar features to show that they are related, completing the set. Not an easy task. Perhaps that is why we love those small indispensible graphical images so much, it’s an appreciation of the hard work, creativity and talent of the designer. In this post we present a round-up of fresh high-quality icons that are available for free download and (sometimes only for personal) use.

Android Holo themes with backwards compatibility | ChilisApps The Android platform provides a nice feature for app developers called themes. Themes allow developers to change the appearance of activities or the whole application easily. Developers can choose from themes like full-screen or no title bar, as well as ones that change the application from a dark to a light appearance. Lets take a look at an example of the problem and then I’ll explain an easy fix. I can’t simply change to the new holo theme as follows because it will break compatibilty with 1.X and 2.X phones: Luckily there is an easy solution to this problem! Your application will already have a values folder in its res directory, we can add a new one called values-v11. You will need to start by creating a themes.xml file in the values folder and add the following text: What we have done here is created three custom themes called Theme.Default, Theme.NoTitle and Theme.FullScreen and used the standard android themes as the parents. We’re all done.
How About Orange Here's a look at our upstairs guest bathroom. Last night I covered an accent wall with removable wallpaper. I love it! This bathroom has a peculiar layout. The kind folks at Walls Need Love sent the product to review. Like the Sunburst wallpaper I designed last year, this paper is essentially a giant self-adhesive wall decal, and it's easily to peel off and reposition. I measured the wall and cut a length of paper that would leave a little extra overhang at the bottom. After a couple tries I had it, and then it was just a matter of peeling off the backing paper gradually while smoothing down the paper with the tool provided. I cut another piece to place next to the first panel, overlapping the seam by a quarter inch to match the pattern. Then with a craft knife and straight edge, I trimmed off any overhang that wrapped onto the adjacent walls and baseboard. This stuff is really forgiving if you accidentally get it stuck to itself.
