Collection of Visual Explorers for Adobe Flex

Adobe Flex is a complimentary product for Flash. In fact, if you are familiar with Actionscript 3 you’ll find that Flex is not very difficult to pick up at all. I use both Flash and Flex regularly and one of the best aspects of Flex is the ability to design UIs quickly and alter them easily using standard Web CSS techniques.

One of the best ways to get inspiration for a Flex (or even Flash – they share some of the same libraries) is to use the multitude of Visual Explorers available. What began as simple component and style browsers has now been extended to many library features of Flex. Here are the explorers that I use frequently within my work-flow:

Another benefit of the explorers is that most provide the source code. By right-clicking in the Explorer and choosing View Source you can view and even download the entire project. This ability makes recreating the examples very simple.
