New Articles at Community MX

I’ve fallen a bit behind in updating my site with new articles. The following is a list of the new articles I’ve written at Community MX:


You can also see an updated list on my Published Works page.

ECMAScript for XML (E4X): Overview

I just published a new article at Community MX earlier this week.  The article covers the new E4X specification published by ECMA International.  E4X stands for ECMAScript for XML.  ECMAScript is the language ActionScript is based on; therefore the likelyhood of this new XML funtionality making its way into future versions of Flash is very good.

Two new articles at Community MX

I have two new tutorials/articles over at Community MX. The first is on how to create a filter for the Macromedia V2 List Component. The tutorial also covers how to do this same thing in JavaScript. This will give you an idea of how the two languages compare.

Creating a Filter For the List Component

The second article was just released today. It covers a technique for integrating the browser’s history into your Flash movie’s navigation. Using this technique will allow you to log navigation events in the browser’s history, therefore allowing the back and forward buttons to control your Flash navigation.
