MAX: Integrating Flex and Flash Content with AJAX

October 19, 2005 ·

Mike Chambers gave a great overview of how to use the open source Flash / JavaScript integration kit to communicate between rich media and HTML together on a single web page. He used the MXNA click report as an example: you can interact with the chart and the HTML on the page updates accordingly (without a page refresh); you can also click on categories and feed names (in the right hand column) and the page content - both Flash and HTML - updates without a page refresh. It's a slick experience and Mike showed that it really isn't that hard to achieve. Then he talked about the new-in-Flash Player 8 ExternalInterface API that makes it even easier to interact between HTML and Flash using JavaScript. Impressive!
