XRay Viewer

29 Aug 2007

A lot of the time a designer gives me a swf, and I want to know how they structured it. I have two options.

1) Open up the Flash IDE and explore it
2) Add an instance of it to my project, and then use XRay to explore it.

Now, I have a third option. I can open it up in the XRayViewer AIR application I just put together and then use XRay to look through it.


All this little app does is host the XRay connector and let you load a local swf (File->Open). Then it displays the swf with some simple controls to play/stop/advance/back.

But the real power is you can go off to the XRay interface and look through that loaded swf!
