Implementing Skins for Flash Components (ActionScript3)

Skins


Skins. What are they?

Many people have been familiarized with a term ‘skin’ through WinAmp music player or Windows Media Player from Microsoft. Skins are the styles, which user can simply change to give the application or control or webpage a definitely new look and feel. Currently skins are widely used as in software development and also for web resources. WordPress or Drupal template is nothing else but a skin for a web-site.

That’s not a secret, that there are as many preferences in colors/shapes/sizes/locations as people on the Earth. And nowadays, when competitors are struggling with each other to attract customers’ attention to their product, a possibility to allow a customer to customize the look and feel of everything by his own taste gives an advantage to those, who provide such a feature. You may select you favorite theme of the message board you visit, choose the colors for your Instant Messenger and of course can tune your desktop. In general, all this is about skins.

Dolphin 7 first impression

527600Few days ago Boonex.com has made a public demo of Dolphin 7 alpha version.

here it’s http://www.demozzz.com/dolphin7a/
We reviewed it and here is some ideas we have about new dolphin 7.
First of all new design and structure of website is clear, the way new dolphin handle menu system is much better now. New dolphin 7 is more usable and easier for users to use it, navigate and find stuff.
New version has many new features, some of them are working now some does not but still there will be more betas and RC versions to dig dipper.
New dolphin looks very similar to Boonex unity with all features and design. This is not bad and not good this is just the way they did it.  I like it actually.
There were many talks about modular structure of all Dolphin to make it easier to use by developers and made really cool modules like for in WordPress or Drupal CMS. Everything in one folder and this opens great opportunity for CSM and developers. As new version of Joomla was big step for the CMS hope new dolphin would be big step for all community of Dolphin lovers, owners and developers.

Unfortunately I could not look into the code of new dolphin and tell my ideas of what is good and what is not. But I’ll do it the same day I could download new dolphin 7 and install it.

If boonex.com send me a copy of dolphin 7 to e-mail that would be great and I’d tell my ideas about it to everyone.
What I dislike in new dolphin 7:

  1. Continue reading ‘Dolphin 7 first impression’
