Air Application generated via RoboHelp: can a developer edit like any other Air app?

Hello Forum,

 

I have an Adobe Air application - contains a niche business methodology (interlinked processes, tools, templates etc.), authored and generated using RoboHelp - which I want to make available for commercial sale.  In order to do this it looks as if we need a developer to integrate with the API of the vendor (see examples below) with my Adobe Air Application (RoboHelp content generated as an Adobe AIR Application).

 

I asked this question in the RoboHelp forum but the initial response has been confusion and uncertainty over whether you can 'tinker' under the hood like this. I was hoping - praying indeed, we are up against a deadline - that this isn't a massive oversight and that Adobe Air Apps built using RoboHelp can be edited like any other.

 

Here are a couple of examples of the integration required:

Any comments or pointers (including developers to speak to) *greatly* appreciated.  Any questions, anything I've left out, please just ask!

 

Thanks,

 

Felix

    I don’t think you’re looking at the correct location – try http://forums.adobe.com/community/air and start typing your question in the “Ask a Question” field; it appears to be working fine.

    Sorry, I forgot how to start a new discussion (been a while). You need to choose an area first (like Problems & Bugs), then select that in your dropdown list (you get a “You are here” indicator next to the forum you’re in). Then you can start up a new thread.

     

    You were trying to go at it from too high up the chain.
