flashcomponents.net is a repository of over 180 free component that can be used in your Flash MX projects. I find it extremely handy to have a go-to repository of tools like this all in one place, and I don’t know about you but I aggressively bookmark them accordingly, knowing that it will save me loads of time sooner rather than later.
My favorite is the Rich Text Editor. This component is comparable to the RTE component included on Macromediaâ€™s Developer Resource Kit #2 (for which I paid $99USD). Go take a look at this wide assortment of Flash functionality and see what you can find that will be useful to you on your next project–or the one on which you’re currently working!
