Dear Reader,

I have posted several posts on this blog that all derived from a sample app that I wrote to generate QR Codes using the Google API. So far I’ve only give you the individual pieces, this post is about pulling them all together and creating the application.

I have been working on this particular application since February. (I used it to generate the QR Code I sent to the lovely and talented Kathy for Valentine’s Day.

The MXML can be found below this post, and a link to the FXP can be found just above it. If you have Flash Builder 4, grab the FXP and you can import it and see all the code.
