Confessions of a Flasher
11/23/2005 01:10 PM by Chris Toohey
When I was given the opportunity to not only get a pretty-wordly web solution to integrate with Domino but to also make some extra money just in time for the holidays... I didn't have to think too long and hard about it!
The project: the Flash banner you see before you now!
I hadn't touched Flash in years (literally, since about 2000/2001), but in launching Flash MX 2004 I realized just how long it had been.
Despite being able to pull this off, I still have so much to learn about Flash and just what I can do with it. It helps that I get to now use it as part of my toolbelt - and as such I hope to be able to pull of some pretty interesting/cool/fun things. My next trick, and I'm certain that this can be done(!), is to dynamically populate the Flash movie or application with an XML-formatted-Domino-driven datasource. I can use it to build really slick Salesforce-friendly reports from various Domino Logs and Usage Statistics, not to mention other unforeseen possibilities!
I guess we'll see just how far down this rabbit hole goes!
