Flex - Move3D Effect


Advertisements


Introduction

The Move3D class moves a target object in the x, y, and z dimensions. The x, y, and z property specifications of the Move3D effect specify the change in x, y, and z that should occur to the transform center around which the overall transform effect occurs.

Flex Move3D Effect Example

Let us follow the following steps to check usage of Move3D Effect in a Flex application by creating a test application −

Step Description
1 Create a project with a name HelloWorld under a package com.tutorialspoint.client as explained in the Flex - Create Application chapter.
2 Modify HelloWorld.mxml as explained below. Keep rest of the files unchanged.
3 Compile and run the application to make sure business logic is working as per the requirements.

Following is the content of the modified mxml file src/com.tutorialspoint/HelloWorld.mxml.

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>

               <s:Button label = "Apply Properties" click = "applyMoveProperties()" />
            </s:VGroup>

            <s:Image id = "imageFlex"
               source = "http://www.tutorialspoint.com/images/flex-mini.png" />
         </s:Panel>
      </s:VGroup>
   </s:BorderContainer>
</s:Application>

Once you are ready with all the changes done, let us compile and run the application in normal mode as we did in Flex - Create Application chapter. If everything is fine with your application, it will produce the following result: [ Try it online ]
