American Red Cross Disaster Relief

More than 50,000 people have lost their lives in East Africa and South Asia in the aftermath of the earthquake and resulting tsunamis on December 26. The American Red Cross reports that emergency assessment and first-aid teams were on the ground quickly and are already working with local groups to support relief efforts. One hundred percent of donations made will go to the American Red Cross disaster relief efforts.

Mike Chambers’ Firefox extension

Mike Chambers, a Macromedia Product Manager, recently released an extension for Mozilla Firefox.
It’s a very simple extension which keep up with the latest Macromedia news, information and weblog posts.
…It places a small icon on the FireFox task bar that, when clicked displays all of the latest information. The extension will periodically check for new data, and blink when it finds new information.
It also has support for Thunderbird.
It has been localized into 5 different languages too (Portuguese, German, Italian, French and Spanish)


AMFPHP is dead, long life to INFRNO!

Recently Patrick Mineault joined the amfphp developer team and he gave a new life to the project! Also we’re choosing the new project name according to the PHP license which discourage the usage of the word “php” inside a project name (expecially point 3 and 4 of PHP license).

INFRNO seems to be the most voted name It’s always nice to slip a recursive acronym into a project title – it lend character. So the new working title ‘Infrno’ is actually “Is not Flash Remoting, NO!” which as you can see is pretty funny. I suggest you to stay tuned with the changes amfphp will take in the near future.. Now everyone is invited to post his own vote!
The email to vote is: Now, we will collect everyone’s wishes and gather the data to discuss.
If the vote is overwhelmingly one sided, it will be an easy conversation. This is not the deciding factor, just a mechanism to gather the communities oppinions and/or narrow down the options to make a more formal decision. The leading suggestions have been

Drag and Drop Tree component, yet another!

Yes, this is another drag and drop tree component ๐Ÿ™‚
It was a log I wanted to extends the built-in Flash mx 2004 Tree component in order to allow drag and drop operations.. but time was always my enemy.
I was lucky that i need one for work.. i look around and i founded some cool other similar components, but i wanted to be able to do it by myself ๐Ÿ˜‰
It just extends the base Tree component and you can set some drag and drop rules, just costants..
for example, i set these costants to be used:

  • TreeDnd.DEFAULT
  • TreeDnd.DENYALL

they can be used in combinations:
in this way you cannot drag a folder, only leaf nodes, and you cannt drop the dragged item into a leaf node, only into a folder or before/after another leaf node…

AMFPHP, method table automation

Christophe Herreman created a very nice PHP class in order to automate the method table creation inside your AMFPHP class.
In this way, using his class, you can instead of writing every time you create a new PHP class, or just editing it, the code like:

$this->methodTable = array(
"getParkTypes" => array(
"description" => "Returns list of park types",
"access" => "remote",
"arguments" => array ("arg1")
"getParksList" => array(
"description" => "Shows list of parks given a park type",
"access" => "remote",
"arguments" => array ("parkType")
"getParkDetails" => array(
"description" => "Return details on a park give the parkname",
"access" => "remote",
"arguments" => array ("parkName")

You can just use this code:

$this->methodTable = MethodTable::create($this);

The only problem for most of us is that this requires PHP5
