A client has asked for the following:
- create an Air app that displays products from his website.
- the app would have to access the website and display both
swf and html based content. The external URL needs to be loaded
automatically after the app starts.
- app is required to sit always in front of other windows
while it is running.
I have reviewed the SDK for Air, downloaded and used Aptana
software and created some test apps successfully. I reviewed the
Dev Guide and found the alwaysInFront window option, but exactly
how and where is this activated?
Are there any examples to download that meet the above
criteria? Can anyone offer any advice on how to build this from
scratch, including the code required?
Everyone's probably quiet because to give specific advice,
one would have to spend quite a bit of time to address every task
you'd need to do. It's all certainly possible in AIR but providing
code is tough if one hasn't already done something close to what
you want to do.
I guess I'm a bit naive on this topic. It seemed simple when
I read 'You can program an AIR application entirely with HTML and
changes...' Perhaps I should have read the next bit: '(assuming
It would be better if I programmed in the Flash / Flex
Thanks for the link to always on top - at least one thing has
I'll keep searching for a project that has successfully
displayed an external website in an Air app.
