Documentation for as3googlecalendarlib

February 19, 2009

Not finding much time to work on the as3googlecalendarlib ( or the sample application using the library. I managed to create a simple API documentation for classes which should be used to consume Google Calendar service. I also created a document in which there are code samples on how to create a calendar and calendar events.

I will add more to these documents and publish a proper API documentation and yeah a sample application ASAP. 🙂

I have the sample application running with minimal features, but wanted to add more. 🙂

Following Indian Stock Markets made easier. Flex and AIR to rescue

February 5, 2009

I was looking for an application which will periodically retrieve stock prices for companies in Indian stock market. Unfortunately I couldn’t find one. I created an Adobe AIR application, which will periodically retrieve stock prices and other details for companies.


1.       Maintain list of companies to follow: Search for companies and add them to persistent list

2.       Auto refresh: Automatically retrieves data for stocks in the list. Auto refresh can be disabled

3.       Alerts: Configure application to alert you when a particular company’s stock value either changes or decreases/increases beyond a value

4.       Details: Current price, previous close, percentage change and volume in both BSE and NSE

5.       Windowless: Minimized to system tray

You need Adobe AIR runtime to use this application. Get Adobe AIR from this URL

After installing Adobe AIR, download Stock Ticker application at this URL and just double click to install Can be installed on ANY Operating System, thanks to AIR): This application is taken offline due to various reasons. 🙂 Please drop me an email at if you are interested in using this application.

Note: If you are using IE to download the application, sometimes the file will be saved with .zip extension. In this case change the file extension to .air and double click to install. 🙂

January 29, 2009

I created an AS3 library for Google Calendar API. This library has following features implemented.

  1. Authenticating to the Calendar service
  2. Retrieving calendar lists
  3. Retrieving all calendars
  4. Retrieving only calendars that a user owns
  5. Managing calendars
  6. Creating new calendars
  7. Updating existing calendars
  8. Deleting calendars
  9. Retrieving events for a specified date range
  10. Creating single-occurrence events
  11. Updating events
  12. Deleting events
  13. Reminders and Notifications

Please download the library from this URL

All you have to do is to use the classes in the package to use any of the feature mentioned above.

This library still needs to be improved, in terms of adding more features, code cleanup, documentation and implementing any suggestions. I will try to complete this as soon as possible. 🙂

If you are interested in contributing to this library, please let me know. If you want to use this and want to know how to, leave a comment.

I am in process of creating an AIR application using this API, I will be posting soon. 🙂
