CKEditor On Air

15 07 2010

Although Adobe has provided a new (opensource) Text Layout Framework with the release of Flashplayer 10 and Adobe AIR 1.5, i am more curious whether it was possible to use a javascript editor like the CKEditor within for example Adobe AIR.

After some searching on the web, i found out that it should be possible to use javascript/html editors like CKEditor within Adobe AIR, but little info was available on how to do that.

So this blog post describes the steps i have made to successfully integrate the CKEditor with Adobe AIR, called CKEditorOnAir. Download for full example code.

Fileupload using Zend AMF, RemoteObject and Flash 10

In one of my earlier posts i described a method for uploading files using the RemoteObject class found in the Flex SDK. For the “back end” i used the still very popular amfphp implementation of the AMF protocol.

RemoteObject using AMFPHP and Actionscript 3

6 09 2008

In my daytime job i am currently involved with a Flex3/BlazeDS project.The question arises to me quickly if it was possible to use Actionscript 3 RemoteObject classes with a PHP back end. A quick search with Google showed me some examples where Flex mxml in combination with amfphp 1.9 was used. This particular version of amfphp has support for AMF3 messaging protocol and therefore can be used natively with AS3 RemoteObject.

In my example i wanted to do something different by using AS3 RemoteObject classes and creating Channels at runtime, so no server-config.xml is needed during compile time.
