I have been programming with flex for a couple of days now. I
understand most of the concepts of mxml and action script. I am
really impressed so far and have decided to develop an upcoming
website I am to work on in Flex 2. I have seen a ton of tutorials
from Adobe, many of which are helpful, content from lynda.com and
safari.oreilly.com, both of which I am a member.
I am having varying degrees of success picking up mxml and
AS3. I understand that mxml gets compiled into AS3. So I am
guessing I should start with a more through understanding of AS3?
My main stumbling block is the overall program flow. For example I
am trying to write a login page that will verify user credentials
against an xml response from a PHP call. Seems simple enough:
But... I am having a hard time trying to figure out how to
get the login button to invoke my http call... Is this something
that I should be writing into AS3 so I can have more flexibility?
Basically I just need to ramp up and get a better
understanding of the overall process flow of Flex "pages" If anyone
has any thoughts on a good resource for this type of information,
please let me know... Thanks.
