New Example Code: Collection Functions

If you have spent any time at all working in Bungee Connect, then it’s likely that you have seen that the Collection type is a fundamental tool for every project you work on. If you know how to use Collections effectively, your development skills in Bungee Connect go way up.

For that reason, the Education team at Bungee Labs has just wrapped up a first edition of sample code for all the functions found on the Collection runtime type. They are now available for you to import into your Bungee Connect workspace and check out.

To get at the sample code, log into Bungee Connect, and do the following steps: Read the rest of this entry »

Flickr Google Maps example code now available

Some time ago I promised to release the code for the Flickr Google Maps example. I’m pleased to say that now you can import this code into any solution and see how I built this app.

The app was rather simple to build. Part of the delay in delivery was that I was updating the code to use the new RESTUtil to make it even simpler. It takes only one line of code to get pictures from Flickr. All you need to do is pass in the URL, the type that is returned and a collection to hold all the picture results.

Dynamic Forms in Bungee Connect

If you’ve spent any time on the new Start Tab in Bungee Connect, hopefully you’ve taken the time to explore the Control Examples in that Tab. One of the control examples is for DynamicForm.

The ability to represent different views of the same or related data is a staple of software development. The ability to quickly swap out those views in a way that is natural and fluid for an end user is difficult in traditional web development because of the standard Page Refresh model that permeates the web. We’re going to take a look at how Bungee makes changing out views and dialogs that display data, not only fluid for the end user – but intuitive to implement for the developer.
