Free flex uploader is coming along pretty great

Hello All,

I’m developing an Uploader component, for free use in your website or blog.

I’m using Adobe flex builder 3 for it, so the final result will be an swf you can simply embed in your real life website.

Well, this is not a release note, just an update.

I have completely changed the way you will configure the uploader. It used to be a couple fo JavaScript predefined function you should have used. I changed it to an XML config file, it has all of the parameters I could think of.

I’m pasting the xml straight from the development environment, its really important to me to hear what you have to say, I want it to be as user friendly as possible.

Please, if you think I should add another param or whatever, please drop me an email or send a contact through the contact page.

Here’s the xml


 1: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
 2: <uploaderConfig>
 3:     <!--
 4:  Should be: :-) 
 5:  -->
 6:     <uploadScriptUrl></uploadScriptUrl>
 7:     <!--
 8:  Should be javascript funcion that gets a single param like so: progressEvent(progress)
 9:  You can display this to the user, or do other things you want.
 10:  -->
 11:     <progressEventListner></progressEventListner>
 12:     <!--
 13:  Same as before, javascript function that gets a single param > Error Message
 14:  errorListner(errorMessage)
 15:  -->
 16:     <errorListner></errorListner>
 17:     <!--
 18:  What do you want your users to upload?
 19:  jpg;mpg;wmv;flv
 20:  all other file types you want type here will be disregarded and an error will be raised.
 21:  -->
 22:     <fileTypeAllowed></fileTypeAllowed>
 23:     <!--
 24:  This is when i make your life easier.
 25:  You can pass me the file size in KB, the flex handles the translation to bytes :-)
 26:  How?... like so:
 27:  KB:250
 28:  Please do not use a double.decimal the, thoug you won't get en Error the flex simply will disregard this
 29:  -->
 30:     <fileSizeAllowed></fileSizeAllowed>
 31:     <!--
 32:  Javascript function for displaying the message to the user
 33:  -->
 34:     <completeListner></completeListner>
 35: </uploaderConfig>

You can also download the file from here: [download id=”1″]

This is what the uploader looks like, I tried keeping it A.S.A.P (as simple as possible :-))
