Subject: [Flashcoders] Junior Developer Flash/Flex Salary?

Does 30-55K a year sound right with benefits for a junior developer? I
have
a college degree and an extensive IT background but, I'm just now getting
into a professional job environment developing but, I have been using
flash
for some time now. 30K sounds wa too low, would you agree? If someone
had 2-3 years experience, what should a flash/flex developer get? What
should they start at?

Thanks

[Flashcoders] Array like access to custom class?

2005-12-20 Thread Dan Thomas
Can I provide array like access to a custom collection object?

E.g.

Class MyClass
{
private var myArray:Array;

public function getArray():Array
{
return this.myArray;
}
}

This would allow access to the array items as so:

var someClass:MyClass = new MyClass;
thisItem = someClass.getArray[0];

How can I change it so I can achieve the same thing but with access to
the items like this:

var someClass:MyClass = new MyClass;
thisItem = someClass[0];

Hope that makes some sort of sense?

Cheers,

DannyT

Use __resolve:

private var myArray:Array;

public function __resolve(name:String):Object
{
if (!isNaN(name)) {
return myArray[Number(name)];
} else {
return false;
}
}
}

But it will not strict type properly at all, so you lose major 
benefits of using as2 this way. I'd do it:

class MyClass
{
private var myArray:Array;

public function elem(n:Number):Object
{
return myArray[n];
}
}

And:

var someClass:MyClass = new MyClass;
thisItem = someClass.elem(0);

Then you will get proper validation of argument, parameter and return
types.

RE: [Flashcoders] flash and ASP.NET

2005-12-10 Thread Dan Thomas
For what its worth I have managed to get WebOrb working (with a bit of help 
from Scott Hyndman), yet to do anything other than take a look and mess around 
with the samples it comes with but looks pretty decent. Certainly a nice viable 
alternative for .net heads.
 
From their downloads page I downloaded WebOrb for .Net after setting up my 
local IIS to run .net properly and it worked fine.

Why don't you just use XML for the communication between flash en ASP.NET. 

Just use .net for the database connection and read/write actions. 

Write out your XML with .NET and import the page just like you would import 
XML in Flash. 

Use that all the time and it works like a charm...

however was also a little confused, i downloaded the free edition that 
supposedly supports remoting with asp.net but it didn't seem to include all the

I am not a user so I am not an expert on flashorb. But as I understand
it, weborb is just the most recent version that, along with handling
flash remoting also does ajaxy stuff.  I believe the free version is the
standard edition. If you cant find the weborb, I think the flashorb
standard edtion is fine since all that weborb does is add support for
ajaxy stuff.

[Flashcoders] Swtich Statement issue!?

2005-12-06 Thread Dan Thomas
I have a method that returns a number which I know to be of value 1
I have a static number variable in another class (SWF_STATE) which I
also know to be 1.
In an if() statement they evaluate to equal the same, however in the
following switch statement it will not evaluate?


trace(TYPE:+currItem.getMediaType()+ COMPARED TO: +
VideoVO.SWF_STATE); // this traces TYPE:1 COMPARED TO:1


if(currItem.getMediaType() == VideoVO.SWF_STATE)
{
trace(wtf?!);//this evaluates and traces
}
switch(currItem.getMediaType()) // this switch always traces the
error (default branch)
{
case VideoVO.FLV_STATE:
this.currentPlayer = swfPlayer;
break;
case VideoVO.SWF_STATE:
this.currentPlayer = swfPlayer;
break;
case VideoVO.MP3_STATE:
this.currentPlayer = swfPlayer;
break;
case sometest==VideoVO.JPG_STATE:
this.currentPlayer = swfPlayer;
break;
default:
trace(ERROR: NO MEDIA TYPE!);
}

trace(sometest); // traces 1
trace(VideoVO.SWF_STATE); // traces 1

Any help on this very much appreciated!
