Operating System Detection in Flash Player

Flex / AIR , Flash 5 Comments »
Here is a great little script I found for detecting the OS. import flash.system.Capabilities; var flashPlayerVersion:String = Capabilities.version; var osArray:Array = flashPlayerVersion.split(' '); var osType:String = osArray[0]; //The operating system: WIN, MAC, LNX var versionArray:Array = osArray[1].split(',');//The player versions. 10,0,22,87 var majorVersion:Number = parseInt(versionArray[0]); var majorRevision:Number = parseInt(versionArray[1]); var minorVersion:Number = parseInt(versionArray[2]); var minorRevision:Number = parseInt(versionArray[3]);

Starting CF8 from the Command Line on Mac OS

Flex / AIR , ColdSpring 1 Comment »

Often when developing, I want to see exactly what Coldfusion is doing in real time w/o having to trace this out to the command line.  This is particularly usefull when developing Flex apps, where you cannot see what the server is doing.

Unfornutately, I keep losing the instructions on how to start up CF in OS X.  There are a lot of other postings out there, but many of them are using the multiserver installation of CF.

So here it is (more for my reference, but perhaps someone else will find it useful:

sudo /Applications/ColdFusion8/runtime/bin/jrun -start coldfusion

We were setting up a new development environment today. As such, we were making sure all the tools were up to date. And suprise: Flex Builder 3.0.2 is begging to be downloaded. Here are the details: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flex/articles/sdk32_fb302.html Most of the fixes/enhancements are related to Flash Player 10 (here is the link to solved issues: https://bugs.adobe.com/jira/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?pager/start=50).

Getting Flash metadata info CF

ColdFusion , Flex / AIR , Flash 7 Comments »

We are currently working on a large project requiring hundreds of Flash assets. On of the requirements is to be able to detect the end of an animation; in Flash 8, you use _currentFrame == _totalFrames.  This naturally has changed in AS3 to currentFrame == totalFrames.  When using the AS3 notation (inside a Flex app) to examine the Flash 8/AS 2 file, both values come back null.

We discovered that some of them were published for Flash 8, and others for Flash 9. Problem....

ColdFusion to the rescue.
