This edition is all about AJAX and Flash. No, it is not the Greek god and its little helper, these two technologies that have been gaining momentum like no other. We show you how to show off with an AJAX Image Gallery and a Flash portfolio. This edition also teaches you how to print in Flash so you can print just about anything you’d like. Furthermore we have a bonus article on Creating Calendars in PHP.
Using your AJAX image gallery your visitors will be able to pick from a list of gallery albums and load the album’s thumbnails. In the second part we’ll show you how to add some new feature and improve upon the basis established earlier.
After that we’ll move on to printing in Flash. We’ll take you through on how you can use it to print the Stage from your Flash movie and then we’ll print out a movie clip that isn’t visible in the published SWF file.
Next on the list is creating a Flash portfolio movie. In part I we’ll build a portfolio web site by loading the data from an XML file. And in part II we’ll populate the interface from the XML file and have created a working application.
Last but not least. creating calendars in PHP. We’re first going to look at styling the calendar using CSS, then at the best way to store a time and date in a MySQL database and at how to change a datetime field into a timestamp.
