Flex version of my overworn “flying boxes” GUI demo

Long-time fans may remember my “flying boxes” demo at the St. Louis Java user group in 2005, or my followup work in 2008, in which I translated that demo to JavaScript (Rhino).

I picked that demo project up again last year and recreated it with Flex 3; you can now try it out onlinedownload the code, or browse it on github. It looks like this:

Click on it to try it “live” in as Flash/Flex.

The interesting part is the drag-drop movement – not my less-then-stellar color and design choices.
