MadComponents Update and Stage3D demo

MadComponents version 0.7.6 and ExtendedMadness 0.1.8 are ready for download. SVN is refusing to do what it’s told – so the SVN repository is out of date. There’s a downloadable zip file of MadComponents source instead. (I don’t have the time today to battle with SVN).

Check out the download release notes.  New fixes and features in this version include better memory management, an xml setter method in UIForm to dynamically change the layout xml and form within it – and a new ExtendedMadness popUpButton.

MadComponents Stage3D

I’ve also included a demo of a forthcoming feature in the Stage3D accelerated MadComponents roadmap.  Stage3D transitions.  The Android .apk demo show six powerful Stage3D page transitions: Slide, Cube, Door, Flip, Swap, and Trash.  The source code isn’t available yet, because this is still a work-in-progress.

Please read the release notes before you download this demo.

    Awesome! This will surely be fruitful. Adobe needs backing such tools. I’ll surely be playing around with these today! Thanks Daniel.

    whoa this is exciting! I am sure this will be a very good library for building apps on mobile devices when all the other UI are done rendered on stage3d.

      @edi, MadComponents is free, Open-Source and unfunded. It takes up a little more of my time than I’m comfortable with, but it is a very popular framework. If YOU, or anyone else in the community would like to make some Youtube videos, then I’d be delighted. Also there are lots of other ways that YOU, and other people can contribute to this community project.

        Hello.. You are right but i can not test it on mobile at the mo. 😦

    Can you please explain how to test / see the different components?
    I see these are all AS3 .as files, but no mxml example file.
    I really want to see the different examples…

    Thanks for the time, Sean.

      @Sean, .mxml belongs to the bloated world of Flex, and there’s no place for it here. All the examples (on the Google code site, in the MadComponentsStuff, ExtendedMadnessStuff, and Pure..something.. folders – are Pure ActionScript. Just bring them into Flash Builder, ADT, or whatever, and run them. If you deploy them to mobile, ensure that GPU rendermode is set.

      Come and join the Facebook group. There’s loads of developers there who’ve been using MadComponents for a while – always eager to help out.

    Hi, is there anything like a data gird?
    Can I use UIList to make a scrollable ‘rows of fields’? Hint/example?
