I want to design an HTML5 (+JS & CSS), self-study course for myself. I'm a seasoned Flash/Actionscript developer, but I want to keep relevant if Flash dies. (Please spare me from pro/anti-Adobe politics. I don't care which technology wins. I want to be good at them all.) [more inside]
I build Flash applications for a living. I generally make them configurable via an xml file. I'm looking for a quick and easy solution that would allow me to set up a form that clients could fill out when they want to update the xml. NOTE: everything needs to be hosted on the client's site, to which I often have limited access. So I don't want a solution that involves complex DB management. [more inside]
Programming/geometry: in a Flash program (you don't need to know Flash to answer this), I'm trying to place rectangular images at random positions on the screen. There are already images on the screen. I need to make sure that the new, randomly-placed images don't obscure the images already there. [more inside]
Help me teach people how to program: I need simple examples of functions, classes, etc. [more inside]
I just finished programming a Flash site for a client. During tests, the client insists that scrollbars sometimes lose their ability to scroll. I can't recreate the error. Furthermore, I'm just using Flash's built-in scrollbar (I didn't alter it). This is the scrollbar component that came with Flash MX (not the MX 2004 TextArea). Has anyone encountered this (bug?) before. The site is here (sorry about the self-link, but I don't know how else to get help on this one). To test the scrollbar, click "Production Designers" and try the various names. NOTE: some names won't have a working scrollbar, because there's not enough text to scroll.
XML: I'm writing a Flash/Actionscript program that reads in an XML data file. The info needs to be sorted alphabetically, but people will be continually adding new data to the end of the file, so it will have to be resorted often. There's no easy way to sort XML data in Actionscript (and doing so would slow down the program too much, anway), so the data-entry folks will need to sort the data externally to the Flash app. Are there any (free?) applications that can sort XML data by a node of your choice? I need a solution that can run on a Mac or a PC -- or it could be web based.
Inside, I've posted a question about computer programming, regarding organizing class libraries and packages -- and also regarding good programming practices. [more inside]
