I like laying out forms in MXML because it’s easy to read. In a recent project, I had five email fields and it looked something like this: <mx:Form id="myForm"> <mx:FormItem label="1." labelStyleName="tenEmailsLabel"> <mx:TextInput id="email1" width="300" fontSize="13" /> </mx:FormItem> <mx:FormItem label="2." labelStyleName="tenEmailsLabel"> <mx:TextInput id="email2" width="300" fontSize="13" /> </mx:FormItem> <mx:FormItem label="3." labelStyleName="tenEmailsLabel"> <mx:TextInput id="email3" width="300" fontSize="13" /> </mx:FormItem> <mx:FormItem label="4." labelStyleName="tenEmailsLabel"> [...]

Gig&Tell is a service I created to help bands market themselves with minimal effort. It is currently in Alpha testing mode and I will provide more information about the service soon.

This music player is an embeddable widget that streams tunes from the Total Music API. It also reports statistics, maintains playlists for authenticated users, and provides an easy way to share your favorite music on popular websites.
