I am trying to create an interface that filters data on the client slide when users change their criteria.
I think using sliders is an interesting way to give the user a better way of filtering the data like the ones used at http://www.asfusion.com/apps/homelocator/ and http://examples.adobe.com/flex2/inproduct/sdk/flexstore/flexstore.html
Using check boxes and drop downs also seem to work as it can improve the users search/filter experience.
What is the best approach/methodology to use to build this sort of Flash solution? I want to build simple interfaces that can be used anytime with pre-defined data that the user can organize or filter by various different categories. Examples I can think of are product, house or holiday searches using categories such as price, quanity etc.
Any help given is greatly appreciated.
