TileList Creativity …

I love to break out of the Flex look whenever I can. Flex does give me a lot of functionality that I don’t have to write from scratch in AS3 but for entertainment oriented applications, the default look doesn’t always work. Of course, being lazy, I always love it when I can make something look interesting without that much work.

So here is a rather simple extension to the TileList component that adds some personality to it. The code is simple enough, I just randomly add a small rotation to the images to give it more of a scattered deck of images look rather than a standard grid. A custom cell renderer adds to the effect. I have also added a ‘hover to see larger image’ thing there but that part isn’t completely done yet and so the images are getting clipped but its an interesting experiment on creating custom toolTips.

  1. Arpit, you weren’t kidding! This really creates visual interest to the images and the rollover enlarge just adds to the fun. Keep going!
