If another object changes the transformation matrix of a DisplayObject, the DisplayObject has no means to recognize that it has been transformed, as it is transformed automatically.

Recently I wondered how I can get rid of that “View Source” entry in the context menu of Adobe Air as I wanted to add my own context menu there. It turned out that I had to remove all the source folder entries in the project’s run configuration (see in the image above).

Important: I discontinued the work for fiducialtuioas3. If you are starting a new project, consider using our new AS3 Tuio library Tuio AS3. As you most certainly came here because you want to use fiducials in AS3 find the according Tuio AS3 fiducial howto here. In his Bachelor thesis Frederic Frieß enhanced the original Touchlib […]
Great article from Ben Longoria about how to get smooth image scaling in Flex.
Recently, I needed an image reflection effect in Flex. This would not be complicated to achieve for a Loader image object in Flash Actionscript 3 but the more for Flex as everything needs to be a bit more complicated in Flex when it comes to customizing.
This article from Kevin Hoyt’s blog has been a hell of a lot useful for me. It describes how thumbnails can be generated on the fly of high-res images with Adobe Air and how they can be saved to HD. As some code is missing in Kevin’s tutorial, here is the code of two Adobe […]
This video presents the results of the Bachelor thesis of Frederic Friess at the Vislab of the Wiesbaden University of Applied Sciences. I have been Frederic’s mentor under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Doerner for this work.
This video demonstrates the fundamental multi-touch functions of Vispol. The demonstrated functions contain the creation and modification of persons and objects and connections. Additionally, examples for the application of the layout functions in Vispol are being introduced. Click here for further information about Vispol. You can try out the mouse version of Vispol here.
