Liquid Components, now Open Source !

Liquid Components

For those interested, the Liquid Components are still alive !

I have just joined DDB Paris as a Technical Director, it is a great news for me (and DDB I hope). Unfortunately, this new job gives me very little time to work on my personal projects like the "Liquid Components".

I decided to publish the Liquid Components as an "Open Source" project under a Creative Commons license.

I hope a lot of you will download them, extend, modify, and do whatever you want with them for your personal and professional projects.

For those who did not participate to the beta program, here is a short "état des lieux" :

Architecture :

The Liquid Components extends the CS3 Components. It means that the liquid components can coexist with the CS3 components, they are totally interchangeable.

A big thank you to Grant Skinner for the the great work he has done on the CS3 components framework ! Liquid Components are made possible thanks to the well thought CS3 components framework.

Components available :

The components below are available :

  • LiquidComboBox
  • LiquidList
  • LiquidScrollPane
  • LiquidScrollBar
  • LiquidButton
  • LiquidCheckBox
  • LiquidRadioButton
  • LiquidTextInput
  • LiquidIcon

    One more thing to answer which I’ve also dealt with and noone answered here: You can’t attach the LiquidScrollbar by default to a multiline TextField – the reason is it extends fl.controls.ScrollBar, which doesn’t support scrollTarget. There is quite easy fix though – download the source codes and in the LiquidScrollbar source change “extends ScrollBar” to “extends UIScrollBar”. Also change the import to import “fl.controls.UIScrollBar”. Export it as SWC component or otherwise recompile, and you have the liquid scrollbar with textarea support :) Reason is, UIScrollbar is the same as ScrollBar, it just adds the textfield functionality.
