update(2010-03-22): A reporter waiting on front of , but Google China keep mute

 

 

 

“I have received information saying that Google will leave China on April 10, but this information has not at present been confirmed by Google,”

the unnamed agent told the newspaper.

“Accusation that the Chinese government participated in cyber attack, either in an explicit or inexplicit way, is groundless and aims to denigrate China,”

the spokesman said.

“The United States often gossips about other countries’ policies on administering the Internet, but at the same time it takes similar measures to minimize the spread of illegal information,”

“That shows that the United States takes a strict line with other countries, but not with itself.”

the news service wrote in the editorial.

Anyway, it is not only Google’s China problem, but also China’s Google problem. We can NOT say Google is right or China is right, but Google as a company with mantras “Don’t Be Evil”, the time of cast this event is doubt. What we need to do is only document the fact.

How To Open Word Doc In Flex or ActionScript

 

Create a PDF template with Adobe Livecycle Designer with the relevant fields, send XML data to PDF remote object with the name of the XML nodes matching those of the fields in the , then your Flex applications can open PDF, or simply put the PDF file on your webserver and call it with the url, then the same thing can be done. But how to open word doc in a Flex application?

 

 

In AIR, just simply create a URLRequest that calls it from the user’s local file system. The source code like:

  1. public function clickButton():void{
  2. var request : URLRequest = new URLRequest(‘C:\documents\test.doc’);
  3. navigateToURL(request )
  4. }

Because Flex applications can communicate with javascript and VBScript, carate a Microsoft Word object with the code like following:

  1. var oApplication=new ActiveXObject(“Word.Application”);
  2. oApplication.Documents.Open(“wordFileName”);

and the file name can be passed from Flex with External interface. It will be a probably solution for most of us.

Additional, I tried to find other solutions with ask google, The following is one point from nabble.com:

Unfortunately no! Flex files are compiled into SWFs and SWF natively does not even have the capability to load an HTML files, leave alone word and excel…

And I dont think Adobe is even thinking of doing that! Atleast not with Flash Player 10…

But http://issuu.com/jackzhang1204/docs/word_test seems load the word doc perfectly.

 

A similar question of opening an excel sheet was discussed and a possible alternate for using OWC is also discussed. Because there no more details on above solution I don’t know if OWC or any Word Parser or others be used, anyway, it is not a non-solution issue, if you know anything left a comment pls.…

9 Very Useful Animation LibraryEngine For AS3

 

In previous article 9 Excellent 3D Engine For Flash/Flex/AS we have introduced some excellent 3D Engines. But we think you must need much more. Some very small lightweight, flexible animation Library will help you save effor in development work. You can handle animation or other time functionality with code by using of them in a smart way. Now let’s start.

 

 

TweenLite

 

TweenLite is an extremely fast, lightweight, and flexible tweening engine that serves as the foundation of the GreenSock Tweening Platform. A TweenLite instance handles tweening one or more numeric properties of any object over time, updating them on every frame.

 

 

GoASAP-Go ActionScript Animation Platform

 

It’s a versatile, generic base library for building animation tools in ActionScript 3.0. It enables any AS3 coder to build a rock-solid animation library of your own design! So instead of being stuck with one kit’s set of limitations, you’ll be able to constantly expand your own set of tools for each project – keeping you engaged and inventive.

 

 

AS3 Animation System v2.0

 

AS3 Animation System is a powerful animation tool that can provide you with both simplicity and complexity at the same time. It is also a clearly defined API for auto-completion; one that is nicely documented to make your life easier.

 

 

KitchenSync

 

KitchenSync is an ActionScript 3.0 library for sequencing animations and other time-based actions. It is designed for developers who want a smart way to handle animation or other time-based functionality with code.

 

 

gTween: A New Tweening Engine for AS3 Developers

 

gTween is a small (4.5kb), fast (1500 instances, 0.5s duration, ~25fps), instance based tweening class, with a huge number of options and capabilities.

 

 

Gyro

 

Gyro is a customizable and extendable tweening engine. It is in alpha (NOT complete) and event-based. It can tween by time or frames (steps)

 

 

HydroTween + HydroSequence rev37

 

Fuse style functionality has been moved from HydroTween to a separate class called HydroSequence! This decision was made to offer an easier and more flexible way to control sequences by having clearer access to SequenceCA super methods. Also makes it easier to enhance the functionality of the sequencing parser.

 

 

GeneralRelativity Flash Animation Library

 

It break animations into 2 component parts: a path and a curve. The path represents the spatial component of the animation and the curve represents the temporal.

 

 

Tweener

 

Tweener (caurina.transitions.Tweener) is a Class used to create tweenings and other transitions via ActionScript code for projects built on the Flash platform. The general idea of a tweening Class is that dynamic animation and transitions (created by code) are easier to maintain and control, and more stable than animation based on the regular Flash timeline, since you can control it by time rather than by frames.…
