|This Chemistry 101 application is an example combining some easy Flex techniques (using some custom AS3 classes to represent the Periodic Table of Elements, playing a dynamic MP3 (of the pronunciation of each element), using a custom preloader, and managing the content display based on Internet connectivity), as well as a ColdFusion CFC function that uses the CFHTTP tag to screen-scrape element details. Atomic Numbers, Groups and Periods, Oh My!

You will need the AIR Runtime
A mobile version is also available (for Nokia phones running S60 3rd Edition software) Chemistry101_1.0.0_English (US)_self_signed_testing.sis
Feel free to use this application as a study-tool to test your knowledge of the chemical elements.
Some interesting things I explored during this project:
- Creating classes - an Element AS3 class and a Symbol AS3 class.
- Dynamically loading and playing MP3 sounds, based on the element displayed.
- Managing the content based on Internet connectivity.
- Working with the Math functions in AS 3 is cool.
