AS3 code for retrieving contacts from Gmail

December 11, 2008

When I started learning Flex I developed a simple application which will retrieve contacts from Gmail accounts. I thought I should share it so that anyone can use it.

Application features

1.       Authenticates user with Gmail server

2.       Retrieve contacts from Gmail

3.       Parse the data returned by Gmail server and create typed objects

4.       Allows user to select contacts

5.       Once user is done selecting will throw an event with selected contacts as objects

Please feel free to Copy/Update/Delete this code 🙂

Any suggestions are most welcome 🙂
