NiceComps – AS3 UI components for Flash
5 years ago
NiceComps is a set of ActionScript 3 UI components that I have been slowly working on over about the last six months. I got tired of the ugly built in components that come with Flash and I don’t particularly like the look of MinimalComps. I wanted UI components that looked nice and were easy to use so I set out to create my own. The design of NiceComps was inspired by the Windows Phone 7 UI and one unique feature I wanted to include was the ability to easily and dynamically change the colour of all components being used at once at runtime. Since I started them they have evolved quite a lot as I’ve used them in projects, and therefore they are still not 100% finished. But I have decided to release a ‘Beta’ version which you can try out. There is a demo below of all the components so far (I think it’s all). The code is quite messy at the moment but I plan to tidy it all up in the near future. And please let me know if you find any bugs. Currently the most stable components are the DisplayScroller, CheckBox, InputBox, Button and DropDown as these are the ones I use most. I’ve got a lot of optimising to do because there is quite a bit of duplicate and unused code.
