Those of you following the progress of my company’s Adobe Flash IDE, Amethyst, might be interested to take a look at the latest ’edge’ release.
It’s still in beta but getting ever closer to the full final version now. This new release has a ’live mode’ in the visual Design workspace which lets you ’activate’ all the controls. That means that radio buttons can be checked, text entry fields can have text entered into them and rollover buttons change colour (etc.) when the mouse hovers over them. This is pretty darn’ cool, if I do say so myself!
