Code Impossible: What’s Cool In IntelliJIDEA. Part I

Code Impossible: What’s Cool In IntelliJIDEA. Part I | Everything about Flash | Scoop.it
Eclipse or IntelliJ? NetBeans or Eclipse? IntelliJ or NetBeans? The dispute about the IDEs is the most popular among the software developers and hardly will ever end. I consider myself being a big IntelliJ fan, but I do realize that there are a lot of things that IntelliJ could do better and that NetBeans and Eclipse are better in some ways. In this post I’d like to make an overview of IntelliJ’s features which I like the most, and and beyond that. Also I’d like point out some of the aspects in which IntelliJ could do better.

Advanced break and continue Statements « JacksonDunstan.com

There’s more to AS3′s break and continue statements than you might think. Chances are, you’ve used them to skip to after a loop (break) and skip the current loop iteration (continue), but they can do so much more. Today’s article will cover some of the advanced ways to use the break and continue statements in AS3 resulting in nicer—and maybe even faster—code.

Improving Vector3D « JacksonDunstan.com

The Vector3D class debuted in Flash Player 10.0 as Adobe’s official implementation of, well, a 3D mathematical vector (not the pseudo-Array class Vector). Weirdly, it has a w component and is therefore technically a 4D vector, but its API inconsistently make use of the fourth dimension. There are also strange oversights, inefficiencies, and functionality it really should have always had. Read on for my custom Vector3D derivative—Vector3DExt—that fixes all of these problems by extending and improving on the original.

AaronHardy.com » Macrobot: Macro Commands For Robotlegs

Robotlegs is a fantastic micro-architecture for ActionScript. One pattern used with Robotlegs is the command pattern. Commands are generally short-lived objects that execute a segment of code in response to an event. By encapsulating code in a command, you can maintain low coupling in your app (the view and the command don’t need to be aware of each other) and reduce duplicate code. See the Robotlegs Best Practices page for more info regarding commands.

You may run into situations where you wish to batch commands. Macrobot simplifies this process and provides two ways to batch commands:

Frish's Blog: Binding Dependencies

A common problem I've noticed, even on the SDK team, was when you have one property dependent on another property (or a set of other properties), and you need that property to be Bindable. For example, in spark.components.VideoPlayer, volume is dependent on the videoDisplay.volume property. Usually to make such a property bindable, you add an event listener to know when your dependent property changes. In this case, if you check out VideoPlayer.partAdded(), you can see code like that. However, when I started using the presentation model pattern, this issue seemed to keep coming up quite frequently.
