Our Flex Developer Derby entries
We submitted two entries for the Flex Developer Derby, which, for some reason, are not yet posted at Adobe Labs.
Home Locator is a complete revamp of our Real Estate sample application. We changed the functionality and included a Yahoo! Map that shows the property location. We actually didn't use much of the old code and we focused much more on the usability and look and feel of the application. We spent an incredible amount of time during the design, not even doing actual code. Most of the hurdles we encountered were due to Yahoo! maps not wanting to behave and bugs in the Flex framework, specially when we wanted to skin the application, going away from the default halo (or whatever is called now) look. At the end, we are happy with the outcome. Before you ask, no, we are not planning to give the source away, at least not for now. We are, however, going to post the source for the original Real Estate application for the Beta 3 release.
We have no hopes of winning anything with the other application, My to-do list, since it does not compare to the other entries. It is really a very simple application, and it was developed as part of an article for the ColdFusion Developer Journal. So you can expect to see a step-by-step tutorial based on it and the complete source for download soon.
I went to the FDDerby showcase and couldnt find your entries either.
Hopefully they will update their showcase site soon.
WOW, your application is so cool, I love it`-`
The MyToDo is actually cooler than the screenshots show it to be. :)
I do have a question that is not directly related to the app. I have updated using the updater to CFMX 7.01, since this The reporting module part of our apps dont work.
I have used the MX 7.01 updater which is now version 7,0,2,137072 . Since I have run this updater I get a error when I run a report, error as follows:
Measage:Report compilation error. Error at (135, 20: null
Thanx again for all you have taught us over the last few months.
Fantastic work. The Flash Forms version was amazing, but this really takes the cake! Do you plan on releasing the source code for it? Also, any idea when Mango is going to be ready? Fantastic work!
