DHTML

The simplest of things can be so much fun.

Like changing the background color of a website when you change pages in a flash document. How you do this is quite simple. You just call a pice of JavaScript from Flash, like this:

ActionScript

  1. getURL("js:method(params)", "_self");

An example of this: http://vwg.net/test/su/

note: replace “js” above with “javascript”, somehow wordpress isn’t happy with me using that word… 😉

Google maps

Omg, this is so much fun! Google Maps has a complete API to implement a map on your site, customized to your very own needs.

It’s quite simple, all you need to do is create a div-element and add some JavaScript, basically all that’s needed is this:

  1. var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById("map"));

A bit more in depth tutorial can be found at the API docs website (listed below).
