New Flex 2 Training Video

Totaltraining.com has just released a new Flex 2 video "Adobe® Flex 2 Advanced Visual Programming" hosted by Leo M. Schuman. This is actually very timely for me. I've got a couple of apps that I have just "finished" that I would like to dress up with some transitions to make the UI a little friendlier. Can't wait to see it!

Have you built the application "Natural Experiences" yet? I've had some trouble with images not lining up correctly. "All" works fine but "Animals" (when chosen from the combobox) leaves the images scattered in the gallery window. Any ideas on what I'm overlooking?

Flex Builder 2.0.1 was released shortly after I recorded "Flex 2: Advanced Visual Programming" for Total Training. Changes in this update create two small, fixable issues for anyone using these training materials with Flex Builder 2.0.1:

1) the project metadata format changed, so the project files must be manually created, and cannot simply be imported as shown in the video; and
2) the internal implementation of the ArrayCollection class changed slightly, requiring additional code for the gallery filter to perform properly.

I've documented the fixes, in a step by step "how to" format, in a PDF available here:

Hi Leo, thanks for clearing that up.
