CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Don’t settle for Flex’s boring, standard user interface. Set your Flex
applications apart with the breakthrough skinning and programming techniques
found in Creating Visual Experiences with Flex 3.0 . Leading Flex developers
Juan Sanchez and Andy McIntosh show how to build stunning Flex and AIR
applications. You’ll learn how to take a design and translate that design into
Flex or AIR without sacrificing fidelity, and how to apply state-of-the-art
branding that adds value to all your Flex applications, no matter what they do
or who you’re building them for. Sanchez and McIntosh illuminate every aspect
of creating superior visual experiences with Flex 3.0 and AIR and discuss
planning, design, architecture, and proven user-interface principles, with an
emphasis on technical implementation. You’ll learn how to alter the standard
Flex interface using all the tools available to you: skins, styling,
transitions, effects, filters, graphics built with Adobe creative tools, CSS,
and ActionScript 3.0 programming. The authors reveal the trade-offs
associated with each approach to Flex visual experience design and help you
choose the right techniques for your applications. They explain each concept
and technique in detail, using real-world examples and exercises that solve
specific problems and provide samples throughout each chapter. If you want
your Flex and AIR applications to be a cut above the rest, this is the book
that shows you how.
