The label rotation won't work unless the fonts are embedded.

Another option would be to target Flash Player 10 and use a device font for 
your labels.  Device fonts in Flash Player 10 can be faded, rotated, etc.

Just a guess, but maybe it IS staggering your labels. Perhaps it's difficult to 
observe because the fonts are so small?

Are you using a DateTimeAxis? Have you set any of the properties on 
DateTimeAxis like: dataUnits, dataInterval, labelUnits, interval, unitSize, 
padding, etc? 

Not saying any of those properties will address your problem, but not a bad 
place to start.

 Hi all,
 I had a question regarding an AIR utility class that I am trying to finish.
 The class is pretty simple, it is basically an AIR implementation of the Mac
 Growl UI (notification windows that pop open on the right edge of the

 functionality so I decided to write a generic one that I could open source
 and let everyone use it.
 My question is pretty simple. Like growl, I wanted to bring out a number of
 rectangular notification windows that fade out after some time. There are 3
 ways I can see this being accomplished:
 1) Open new NativeWindow for each notification
 2) Open one transparent nativeWindow add children to it calculate its size
 based on the number of children being added (notifications), and then place
 the window appropriately on the screen's edge
 3) Open one transparent nativeWindow to the size of the screen (resolution),
 and add notifications to its right edge.
 Is there one implementation over another that may have better performance ?
 #2 seems it may since it creates one native window of the exact size it
 needs, but its the most work.
 Any thoughts ?

Um, I think you just need to think about this a little differently.

If you want a child component to be half the width of it's parent container, 
then you set 
the child component's width to be 50%... just like you would do in HTML.

If that's not making sense, post some sample code and perhaps I or someone else

2009-02-13 Thread sunild999999
If your SWF is hosted on server A, and it needs to access data from servers B, 
C, and D 
then you need to put a cross domain policy file on servers B, C, and D that 
permit access 
from server A.

Note, these servers (A,B,C,D) are different servers ... the names are not 
aliases. It kind of 
sounded like one of your host names is an alias for the other.

The cross domain policy file you deploy on each web server should allow access 
server A, since that is where your SWF is hosted:

allow-access-from domain=serverA.domain.com /

Also, newer versions of the Flash player will complain if your cross domain 
policy file does 
not have a site-control tag.  Here's a simple one I use:

site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies=master-only/

Which means there's only one policy file for my site.

Adobe has some good resources on their site:

2008-10-03 Thread sunild999999

When there is no data for a given day, are you representing this with an actual 
0 (zero), or 
a null value?

My experience is that when the data is 0, the chart plots data on the axis and 
often it 
looks like there is no value at that point (because the chart line is plotted 
on the axis 

Enable dataTips for your chart and mouse over a point with no data, does a 
tool tip 
appear?  I would expect no tool tip when the value is null.

The way I understand it, interpolateValues is only used when the data is 
missing (null), not 
zero.  So it sounds like you have no value, not a zero value :)

I concur, massaging the data is perhaps the way to go.  Another option would be 
to just 
generate your chart and rotate it 180 degrees ... but this might have other 
issues (i.e. 
upside down text, or data-tips, etc.)

I did a data massaging approach here:

Two important things to note:

1) I used the dataFunction property of the AreaSeries (LineSeries in your case) 
to massage 
the data.  In my case I negated the value of each data point.  This modifies 
the data to be 
plotted, not the actual data itself.

2) I used the labelFunction property of the LinearAxis to format the labels.  
So even though 
my data was plotted as a negative number, the axis labels show them being 

I think you can achieve what you're looking for by doing something similar.

I think this depends on how you've setup your effects.

For example, I had funny problems w/effects that were part of view state

[flexcoders] Re: Issue with runtime adding of axis labels in DateTimeAxis

2008-09-16 Thread sunild999999
For what it's worth, I do this all the time with charts: call removeItemAt(0), 
and then call 
addItem( newDateHere )

It works well. The oldest date is removed from the beginning of the array 
collection and a 
newer one is tacked on to the end, the chart updates automatically.  No need to 
call any 
other methods (like refresh).

As suggested a code example would help...

the end of the list and the call to refresh() should ultimately makes the chart

 i guess flex caches the dateTime axis labels which is ultimately causing this

[flexcoders] Re: Displaying a date in a line chart

2008-09-10 Thread sunild999999

Here are two approaches I've used:

1) Using a DateTimeAxis:
 If the data representing your dates is in the format that can be easily 
converted into a 
Date object (see docs for the Date constructor), your DateTimeAxis will 
understand the 
dates implicitly. Otherwise, you need to write a parseFunction (see 
DateTimeAxis docs) so 
your data can be converted into a Date object.

Then as Tom suggested, use the labelFunction property to specify a function 
that will 
return a properly formatted date string ... in the labelFunction use a 
DateFormatter to 
print the dates in the UK format ( or just use the Date object's toLocale 

2) Using a CategoryAxis:
Instead of using a DateTimeAxis, consider using a CategoryAxis. This approach 
is similar, 
except now you don't need to worry about writing a parseFunction.  Just write a 
labelFunction as described above.

The CategoryAxis won't deal with dates as nicely as DateTimeAxis, but it works 
nicely for 
fixed date ranges (it wouldn't be so good for doing a Google Finance type of 
chart where 
you can change time frames of the chart).

Check out the docs for the labelFunction and parseFunction properties of the 
DateTimeAxis (or CategoryAxis). They show the function signature that's 
required, from 
there it's easy :)

[flexcoders] Repeat SSL certificate warnings in AIR app on Windows

2008-08-04 Thread sunild999999
I'm working on an AIR project that uses a Timer to fetch data w/an HTTPService. 
 The UI 
for the appliance uses a self signed SSL certificate.

As expected, the AIR app throws up a warning dialog about not trusting the self 
cert.  But I get different behavior on this between Windows and Mac OS:

- On the Mac OS X 10.5, I am warned only once about the cert.

- On Windows XP, I am warned each time an HTTPService is used (when 
w/the appliance, and each time the Timer triggers an update).

I know I can install the certificate in the browser to make it trust it... 
but the average 
user of the appliance wouldn't necessarily know this.

This seems like a bug, any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Here's a really simple app that exhibits this behavior. Clicking the Reload 
button on Win 
XP generates the cert warning each time, but not on Mac OS.  Sorry, the URL 
below is for a 
private IP ... the example is so simple, you don't need to run it anyway :)
