Yahoo! Released ASTRA Flash and Flex components

Category: Flash, Yahoo!

The Flash-y folks at Yahoo! have released a slew of Flash and Flex components in their ASTRA suite:

New Flash components:

  • AlertManager — a user interface component that creates alert windows and manages their queue.
  • AudioPlayback — a set of controls for audio playback.
  • MenuBar — a component that renders hierarchical data as a row of buttons with nested menus (using the Menu component)

On the Flex front, we have:

  • AutoCompleteManager is a component that manages a set of input controls, popping up suggestions when a user types into one of the fields. Instead of replacing TextInput fields with a specific AutoComplete control, you can simply point the manager to one or more TextInputs, and you’ll get a slick pop-up or auto-fill interaction.
  • Color Pickers:
    • ColorPlaneAndSliderPicker is a user interface component that allows the user to pick a color value. It combines a one-dimensional color slider with a two-dimensional color plane.
    • ColorSliderPicker is a user interface component for Flex that allows the user to pick a color value. It combines a set of sliders where each slider represents a component of a colorspace. For example, a ColorSliderPicker displaying an RGB color includes a red slider, a green slider, and a blue slider.
    • DropDownColorPicker is a user interface component for Flex that allows the user to pick a color value. Similar to the standard Flex ColorPicker control, the DropDownColorPicker also gives the developer the ability to completely change the dropdown control to give the user a variety of color views.
  • IPv4AddressInput is a user interface component for Flex that allows the user to input an Internet Protocol version 4 address. This control includes a field for each separate byte and full keyboard navigation.
  • TimeInput is a user interface component for Flex that allows the user to input a time value. This control include fields for hours, minutes, seconds, and AM/PM. Styling options allow the time to be presented in 12- or 24-hour formats.
  • TimeStepper is a user interface component for Flex that allows the user to input a time value. This control include fields for hours, minutes, seconds, and AM/PM. Styling options allow the time to be presented in 12- or 24-hour formats. Up and down buttons allow the user to increase or decrease the currently selected field.

By this time next year or sooner, we’ll see Yahoo! ASTRA Silverlight components or something like that, if the acquisition is approved, won’t we?
