Changing the height of the image

If you grab the thumb with the mouse and move it to the left or the right, two obvious visual effects occur. The first is that the value representedby the current position of the thumb is displayed above the thumb as shown in Figure 3.

(As you will see later, the value is also displayed in a Flex 4 application, but by default the appearance is white numerals on a blackbackground.)

The second visual effect

The second visual effect of moving the thumb is that the height of the image changes to the value represented by the position of the thumb on the slider.

(An Image object has a property named maintainAspectRatio . By default, the value of this propertyis true. Therefore, when the height is changed, the width changes in a proportional manner.)

Note that the upper-left corner of the image remains anchored to the same point as the height of the image changes as shown in Figure 3.

Creating the layout

Once you create your new Flex 3 Project, there are at least three ways that you can create your layout using Flex Builder 3:

  1. Select the Design tab in the upper-middle panel of the IDE (see Figure 5) and drag your containers, controls, and other components from the Components tab onto your design window.
  2. Select the Source tab in Figure 5 and write the raw XML code that defines your layout.
  3. A combination of 1 and 2 above

Expose the components tab

When you select the Design tab in the upper-middle window of the IDE, the lower-left window changes to the appearance shown in Figure 4 with theFlex 3 (mx) Components tab exposed.

The list of available components that you see in Figure 4 also appears when you create a new project in Flash Builder 4 and specify the use ofthe Flex 3 compiler.

A list of available components

Although they aren't all shown in Figure 4 due to space limitations, the Flex Builder 3 Components tab lists all of the components that you can use in your Flex application grouped into the following categories:

  • Custom
  • Controls
  • Layout
  • Navigators
  • Charts

Expose the design window

Selecting the Design tab mentioned above also exposes the Flex Builder 3 designwindow shown in Figure 5.

Drag controls onto the flex builder 3 design tab.

A similar design window is exposed when you create a new project in Flash Builder 4 specifying the Flex 3 compiler and then select the Design tab. The purpose is the same but some of the items at the top of the design window in Flash Builder 4 are different.

Drag components onto the Design tab

You can drag components from the Components tab shown in Figure 4 onto the Design tab shown in Figure 5 to create your layout in the Flex Builder 3design mode or in the Flash Builder 4 design mode. As you do that, the corresponding XML code is automatically generated for you.

sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
