What is Adobe Flex? Adobe Flex 3 is a development environment used to create both windows and desktop applications that can be run on Windows, Mac or Linux systems. Adobe Flex is used to create programs with Actionscript 3 and MXML. It is perfect for Rich Internet Application Development and is easy to learn– especially if you already know HTML or Actionscript programming. Adobe Flex 3 is similar to Flash, but the environment uses a screens metaphor instead of timeline metaphor for development.

This Adobe Flex tutorial takes you through developing your very first interactive application in Adobe Flex. The tutorial is in two parts. This is part one of two.

If you’d like to see a written version of this tutorial it’s available on LearnToProgram.TV’s web site (www.LearnToProgram.TV). Please feel free to share this tutorial with others.

This video is hosted by long time corporate technical trainer Mark Lassoff. In the tutorial Lassoff will guide you through creating three controls in ‘code’ mode and compiling and running your first Flash application.

  • My gosh duuuuuuuuuuuuude! I understand only you! My polytech lecturer can't match ya mate! Ty!!!!!!! <3

  • oh man, you just made a record, made me hit the dislike button in 2 secs !! congrats !!

  • Great video, tyvm!

  • This video is so helpful. Thanks a lot !

  • Thanks for the video. What does the numbers in "flex: 2 3 30px" each referring t? I guess '30px' is the base? What about '2' and '3'?

  • Watch @ 2x, this guy speaks in slow motion

  • Question: Safari 10.3 doesn't support Flexbox and is pushing elements all over the screen. My sites work perfectly on every other browser bar Safari 10.3! Is there a way around this using the Webkit? Thanks in advance — Liam

  • as a complete n00b to flexbox this is incredibly useful, thank you. I can't wait to see what else I can learn from your videos. Thanks a lot man.

  • Awesome video m8

  • Awesome Explanation…Love it!!

  • Awesome video 🤘

  • sir what software your using???

  • i was not getting the use of flex-flow, after watching this video i got it thankyou

  • Superb ! Really enjoyed!

  • nice tutorial ,excellent voice and great explanation

  • flex is a combination between html+css+javascript

  • @gaga1298 no its not, you create swf files, they are neither html, css or javascript.

  • is flex builder 3 a free software ?

  • @saiazad No. While the Flex Platform is open source and free, the Flex Builder software is available from Adobe. Adobe does offer a free trail on their web site if you'd like to try before you buy.

  • @LearnToProgramDotTV – torrent!

  • That IDE looks a hell of a lot like Eclipse, icons and all.

  • @AlexanderLee1 Wow I need to watch the whole video before commenting; it is based on Eclipse.

  • @LearnToProgramDotTV I think the major problem of Flex Platform is that the beginner doesnt know that Flex is Free and you can use Eclipse with it and have a ultra-similar interface to Flas Builder

  • Thanks for the basic descriptive beginner tutorial. This is my first introduction to Flex. My only question on this tutorial is about the syntax, I am very new at AS3 and the other languages. Is this very "case sensitive" like the others. I will follow your example exactly and see if I can code your project and get it to work, I will follow your other tutorials and try to learn something.
    Thank you, Eric

  • thanks
