This component is similar to the Slide Deck, with an added auto-advance. Inside the state rotator component, you can create text specifying the timer delay, and assign it as a skin part. Check out the Slide Deck and the beginning of this series for an example.
Here is a link to the updated .fxp file. Let me know how this one works.
It's time for the second custom skinnable component. It's an Advent Calendar! It even lets you cheat if you want to take a peek forward or backward in time
More on the component structure after the jump.
If any of you tried to make fullscreen applications in Flash Catalyst 1.0, you know that there was some tinkering necessary in Builder. While it's a great way to get your feet wet with Flex, sometimes you'd like something easier. So, I present to you, the Fullscreen Button Component as the first skinnable component of Christmas! Just skin the button, specify the button to make your application go fullscreen, and the skinnable component will handle the rest.
So let's get cooking!
The FlashCats crew has been super busy recently. The Panini preview release is keeping us all on our collective toes. But, with the holidays just around the bend, we thought it'd be nice to share some entirely non-denominational gifts. And, seeing as how Panini is our bread and butter (har har, I crack myself up sometimes), we thought we'd share some custom skinnable components to get everyone in the holiday spirit. Now, we're going to try to get these out on a semi-regular schedule, but with the chaos that always comes right before the holidays, no promises. We may not finish before Christmas, heck, we may not even finish, but we're darn well going to try!
