This Week’s Top Posts Blogroll

Somebody recently asked me which Flex blogs I subscribed to for my “This Week’s Top Posts” posts. So I spent a few minutes trolling through my Google Reader feeds and came up with this list. Enjoy.

Flex SDK/Flex Builder/LiveCycle/Etc.:

Flash Authoring/Flash Player:

Adobe Developer Connection, Flex Developer Center, Flex TechNotes, Flex Builder Tech Notes:

And remember, my “Top Posts” updates only include Adobe employee blogs. I still read and enjoy dozens of other blogs from various Flex developers. If you think I’ve omitted an Adobe Flex, AIR, Thermo, Flash Authoring, or Flash Player blog (by Adobe employees only), leave a comment and I’ll update this list add the link to my Google Reader.

Did I mention that Adobe AIR was released for Flash Authoring and Dreamweaver also?

This may have been a bit lost in the shuffle, but Adobe AIR was also released for Flash CS3 and Dreamweaver CS3. For more information, check out Jen deHaan’s blog post over at Flashthusaist.com, So this AIR thing was released but I use Flash CS3… what now?.

Flashthusiast what now?

It seems like Adobe’s own Jen deHaan (no relation) has started up yet another blog, Flashthusiast.com. It seems she has a thing for unpronounceable and unspellable domain names.

So, for those of you keeping track of Jen’s imaginary made-up words, that makes:
deseloper = designer + deseloper;
flashthusiast = flash + enthusiast;

Are you a Flashthusiast, interested in all things Adobe Flash related? Head on over and sign up to the official Flashthusiast RSS feed. With any luck she’ll update the blog 2-3 times before getting distracted by some shiny object and then starting up yet another blog. ;)

Using embedded fonts with the Flash CS3 DataGrid component

A reader asked me the other day if it was possible to embed fonts into a Flash CS3 DataGrid control’s HeaderRenderer in an ActionScript 3.0 project.

After a bit of code shuffling, it seems it is possible. The trick was I had to create a HeaderRenderer instance and set the embedFonts style to true. Next, I set the row renderer’s embedFonts style to true and the textFormat style using the setRendererStyle() method, and finally set the headerTextFormat style using the setStyle() method.
