i wonder how it is possible to drag an element from a flash
page in my browser to an air app on my desktop. i've seen the
of the nickelodeon jigsaw game on adobe.com, but the videos
looks kind of post-processed.
do you have any tipps on how to enable flash/AIR
drag&drop trespassing the browser borders?
I remember someone mentioning the nick app at FITC, and as
far as I can remember it sounded like a fairly involved process.
When you start dragging something from the browser app, its sends
the bitmap/binary data to the AIR app (using a
sharedObject/localConnection). The AIR app then takes that data and
creates a replica image on your screen, which I'm guessing means it
uses a fullscreen transparent window. So as far as I understand it,
as soon as you start dragging something, the whole thing is handled
i already tried something like this, but i still have
problems with getting the newly created entity dragged. how can I
position the new entity from my air app directly under the mouse
cursor? so far i didn't find any screen mouse position functions or
properties. If I use a fullscreen, always on top window with mostly
transparent parts, I can't capture the mouse position using
MOUSE_MOVE all the time. Besides, how can I change the focus from
my browser to my air app? I already tried calling
nativeWindow.orderToFront() and nativeWindow.activate(), but the
focus doesn't change when I click the entity in my flash page.
