Is there any plan to support one installed AIR application to
open another installed AIR application?
For example, I have a Proposal Generator application.
Occasionally, the user needs to perform financial calculations. I
have a Financial Calculator. Both of these are excellent
If both apps are open, I can successfully use the
LocalConnection class to communicate back and forth. This all works
The problem is that if the Calculator is not open, we simply
need to open it.
Seems like there should be a simple way to allow this to
happen without a lot of gyrations. I see this as a simple
"Calculator" button in the Proposal app could somehow cause the
Calculator to be loaded.
The allowBrowserInvocation is limited to making me prepare an
SWF which in turn requires the user to click a button.
Perhaps something similar to the LocalConnection.allowDomain
method, where the Calculator could opt-in to allow to be invoked by
another AIR app in the same or permitted domain.
