Flex cookbook from O’Reilly – call for more topics

Hello everyone,

Josh Noble, Todd Anderson, and Abey George are all hard at work on the print version of the Flex 3 Cookbook for O’Reilly Media. They’re writing new recipes and incorporating some of your recipes from the online Adobe Flex Cookbook. Get yours in now!

Deadlines are Nov 15 and Jan 1 for the topics. Check out the complete list of topics in my original post.

I’ll be updating that list with these ideas, which just arrived in my inbox from Josh today!

– Accessibility and Creating Accessible Components Module
– RSL library tricks, advice, recipes (I think we’ve got a pretty good range of stuff there but I’m sure we missed something and it is a big topic).
– Working with Bitmaps, BitmapData, and Images

Best of luck to you in getting into the O’Reilly print book!

    Hi Pedro,The Flex 2/Flex 3 SDKs don’t do AS2 compilation, they are only used with AS3. You can look at some other open source projects available on http://osflash.org for AS2 compilation if you’d like.

    Hi Amy,Sorry to ask this question here but i couldn’t find a better place to do so, is it possible to compile AS2 using the command line compiler for flex? And use the embbed tag?Btw, that’s great news that the book is out soon i’ll be getting one myself for sure! 🙂
