Here’s a little something I put together for the fans of Doctor Who and so I can keep track myself, it’s based on the popular Doctor Who Timeline Infographic but broken down to episodes and in html which means I can add, remove, change things with time and need.
If you need to limit user input on a UITextField to decimal characters only, either for currency or something else here’s a bit of code that accomplishes that.
Sometimes you need something else to be shown on the screen besides just a TableView, maybe you want a search bar at the top or a ToolBar or a bunch of other elements. In this case using a UITableViewController as your view won’t do it. This is a simple guide of one way to solve this (I’m sure there might be others).
Exactly one year ago today RedBandana took the first step into the world of casual games by releasing its first game JetBus.
As I’ve wrote before, JetBus was not meant to be a big hit that pleased the masses, it was an experiment with clear goals which I think were achieved and hopefully 1 year later now we are ready to continue this path and make a few more games but here’s some details of how the experiment went.
I thought I’d share a couple small classes that I had to put together recently for a project.
The goal was to create a list of toggle buttons but that would be laid side by side and then wrap at the end of the line. This allows for a really nice multiple selection component in contrast with having just a long list of checkboxes.
One of these days I had to create a a dynamic form and validate some of its fields which could be TextInput, TextArea, CheckBox or ComboBox and I thought of using Validators do accomplish this but although for TextInput and TextArea you can easily just use the StringValidator for CheckBox and ComboBox is not so easy to choose which one to use.
You might have noticed I didn’t post the last couple Weekly Updates on Sundays, I’m sorry for that but it has been a busy time and I have been also thinking of changing it to a Weekly Games post.
In the new format, which starts today, I’ll provide links to some new games and review 2 or 3 in more depth. This week we have Bubble Tanks 3, Flight and Insidia along with a few others.
As some of you might know our first game named JetBus came out 2 weeks ago. I thought I’d share our goals for this game and also discuss a bit our findings of how the Flash game industry “seems” to work, I say “seems” because with only 1 game released there is no way we can take anything for granted, maybe not even after 10 games released. This will be just my personal opinion of Flash games, casual players, portals, APIs etc.
