Mouse Capture

I wrote a simple Mouse Capture component for Flex 2.0.1 – this will save the mouse position every N seconds and on every click. After capturing it is able to draw the path the mouse has gone as well as any clicks. This is very simple and will be a lot of more a tutorial on how to use timers an events. Be sure to check it out if you are new to Flex but also if you like the idea

Features

  • Set time interval for storage
  • Capture clicks only
  • Only import the class and use it
  • Comes with full flex builder project and all sources

Downloads

You can get the file here.

Example Usage

Download the package and put it in one of your Source Folders – then import the class via: import de.aggro.display.MouseCapture

Just press start, click a few times into the White Canvas, then press stop and after that show to test the drawing method.

Example

Coming soon…

Welcome on myFlex

Hi Folks,

Since blogging is cool and the hottest you can do as a developer I’m starting out this Blog for all my Flex regarding stuff. Since I’m German please excuse weird grammar from time to time.

So let’s start out, yesterday Marc Hughes released his new version of the Object Handles Component for Flex – I did most of the code for the rotational support so go and get it. Primary Changes are:

Changes include:

– Initial rotation support added (still needs some tweaks) – my part 😉 .
– Metadata for events added. (Thanks Thomas Jakobi!)
– Bug fix for making ObjectHandles dynamically through actionscript
instead of in an MXML document.
– Ability to turn mouse cursor support off (since they are ugly right
now).

See the full blog post here and the components main page here with a demo to try it. There’s also a google code project if you want to particiate something. Marc has a lot of nice components and several other things so go and check it out.
