You can find a new video for my Tip Tuesday series on my site, this one deals with swapping image files out quickly across your application code in Flex.

Updated the video to show a new feature of my upcoming multi-platform application ‘I Paid Who?’.
Adobe has released to the public BETA’s of the newly rebranded Flex Builder which is now called Flash Builder 4 and Flash Catalyst the design tool for interactive development between designers and developers.
You can jump to the labs to read, download the applications and watch the videos. I strongly recommend watching the videos!
Personally I’m pretty darn excited about Flash Builder 4 and the new features, a lot of them are great time savers for coders, testers and rapid development.
In response to the many wonderful questions I am getting from people regarding topics like actionscript, flex and flash I have opened some discussion forums on my web site www.uibuzz.com where you can ask away and we can discuss solutions and share content with the World!
I have set-up some basic categories like Flex, Flash, ActionScript, web development and photography as they cover most of my posts here on my blog.
You can find my forums at this link, I look forward to discussions with you all.
I am wondering what to do, I have been getting a lot of questions lately on code problems people are having with Flex, Flash or ActionScript. Clearly comments with questions on threads makes this difficult to catch and discuss sometimes, and I want to try and help everyone that asks for it, this was part of the reason I created www.uibuzz.com.
So I wonder, would creating some forums to help people post and respond to questions be the answer? I can set some up with very little effort, I just want to provide the most effective ways to communicate with people who take the time to send me questions. I appreciate that you all take the time and value my response enough to ask me for help, and I will continue to do so in which ever form helps the most.
And a question for all, I know there is some way I can link a WordPress post to a forum to start a thread, anyone know how or what the plugin is?
I have received many responses to my original post to the ActionScript 3 code for loading external text or HTML, and a user encountered a situation loading the data across scenes. So I thought I would go back and revisit the code, this time making it modular with a class.
I have uploaded some sample code to demonstrate how you can add a prompt as the first item in a Flex ComboBox component without having to add it to the data and without having a default selection after the component is initialized.
I have uploaded a new set of sample files and example code for a more elaborate timer class that will countdown from a specified number of minutes or seconds and display the current count in a text field.
The class file and code is in ActionScript 3, rather than repost the code visit the post by clicking here.
