hi Cliff,

Peter Hall has just released Slide. http://code.google.com/p/flex-slide/ . He's address some really interesting issues to help with state management from a uri. there's a great debuging tool too. Unfortunately he doesn't think it will work with PureMVC as he's taken a differnent MVC approach;( however I'd be interest to hear if you feel some of the concepts can be intergrated. there are a few posts on his blog here:

I'll let u know when his LFPUG presentation video is put up... At the moment there aren't many docs on the framework so it's prob going to be hard to get to grips with but I'd keep an eye on it...  cheers paddy ;)

Thanks Paddy. I'll have a peek at this soon.

Funny you should mention this as I am just in the process of integrating swfaddress into a large app and thinking about how bet to derive state changes from the URI.

SWFAddress is awesome, BTW.

I had a sneaky suspicion u where after you're post on the swfaddress mailing list ;) swfaddress is great. I'm still trying to figure out how to integrate it in a different way though. For complex apps I don't like so much logic having to pass through the swfaddress eventhandling. also the way we develop with 'feature driven' development. I'm not keen that I have to bake in swfadress functionality from the get go. i.e I've tried to find ways to have it as a bolt on so the app will work with or without. We've had some success but we had to edit the swfaddress code so you can 'silently' update the address bar without it broadcasting an event. I don't like editing open source code though and as yet haven't got round to convincing asual to integrate a feature like this... ( btw swfoject is great too ;) ) p;)

The html for a page using swfobject sure looks a lot better. I am avoiding it at the moment, just trying to take it one step at a time. Heve you had any problems replacing the standard FB template and using swfobject instead for out of box flex dev?

One step at a time it the way to go! ;) Do you know what, I've never got round to creating a FB template for it. I'm sure there is one out there somewhere though. Infact - googled:
http://olegflex.blogspot.com/2008/06/swfobject-2-flex-template.html

At the mo I just keep on editing the default index.template when I create a new project and have never had probs with it... p;)

Just to let you guys know the swfObject template works like a charm. Very easy-to-use.
