Wild Heart Bulk Landscape Supplies Exciting New Website

Wild Heart Bulk Landscape Supplies is a woman owned business with a goal to create superior work and service at a reasonable price. Wild Heart offers a  wide variety of products and services from their store in Hillsborough, NJ. To help the company grow Corner Edge has designed and developed a new web site that highlights  their bulk products, custom sheds and landscaping and maintenance services. Corner Edge custom developed specially designed calculators to help customers and staff to determine the volume of product needed for a given project. The site also includes order request forms for bulk supplies and sheds, which will soon be incorporated into a full online e-commerce site linked directly to the company’s sales ticket system also developed and securely hosted by Corner Edge. Be sure to visit the various services pages to see some fun Flash animation created to represent each service. In addition to Flash Corner Edge has begun implementing the latest website development techniques available through the use of  html5 and CSS3.

Corner Edge is proud to announce the launch of cr-law.net

Carmagnola & Ritardi, LLC is a law group located in Morristown New Jersey, offering specialized representation in labor, employment and commercial litigation matters. Carmagnola & Ritardi has contracted Corner Edge to be their IT service company. Corner Edge provides the law group with secure data hosting, CES Back Up Service, Email hosting with complete small business services and support as well as web hosting. When CR Law joined the CES client roster it was apparent that they were in desperate need of a website makeover. The design team at Corner Edge provided the client with 2 initial concepts to get the ball rolling. Then the decision makers at Carmagnola & Ritardi cherry picked their favorite elements from each design and offered some creative input of their own.

The New CR Law Site

Corner Edge Design redesign of cr-law.net

The result was an updated “CR” logo with a 3D platinum look and clean new website design that is easily navigated. The home page features a Flash animation of the CR logo and animated text. iPad/iPhone and mobile visitors are redirected to an alternate home page. Even though the site has a few “under construction” pages on it we are very proud to launch this new web presence for Carmagnola & Ritardi LLC., and to address those “under construction” pages the Corner Edge development team is planning to implement their web based on site content editing system so  Carmagnola & Ritardi will have complete control over their site content.

Flash AS2 Tips for Designers, variables in target paths.

How can I use a variable in a target path? This may be a well known bit of info for many Flash developers but for this designer who is not code jockey it was a  quite a challenge. I have a flash file that has a movie clip (myclip) attached to it dozens of times, each clip is dynamically named (myclip1, myclip2, myclip3, etc.) and each contains a variable (var_in_myclip) which is loaded from xml. The root contains 2 variables, one is a number (var id:Number;) and the other is a string (var whichclipvar;).

So I need my “whichclipvar” to be the same as one of my “var_in_myclip” in one of “myclip” movie clips and I want to use my “id” number to target a specific “myclip” to get it’s var, like this

whichclipvar = _root.myclip1.var_in_myclip;

But I need the myclip1 in the target path to change if “id” changes.

The solution is to create a new variable that can be used as a string in the target path. Like this:

var myclippath:String=”myclip”+id;

Then use [myclippath] in place of the movie clip in your target path. The square brackets are important for this, and no preceding “.” who knew? The whole code looks like this and requires a movie clip on the stage with an instance name of “myclip” and its symbol properties must be set to export for action script and named “myclip”:

var id:Number;

//// NOTE: the id var can be set in any way that works for your purposes///

var whichclipvar;

var mycontent:XML = new XML();

mycontent.load(“my_content.xml”);

mycontent.ignoreWhite = true;

mycontent.onLoad = function (success) {

if (success) {

var myxml = this.firstChild;

for (var i=0; i<36; i++) {

myclip.attachMovie(“myclip”, “myclip”+i, (0+i), {var_in_myclip:myxml.firstChild.childNodes[5].childNodes[i].childNodes[1].firstChild.nodeValue,});

}

}

var myclippath:String=”myclip”+id;

whichclipvar = _root[myclippath].var_in_myclip;
