I have the Adobe Air runtime installed, I have Aptana Studio 1.2 and the Adobe Air SDK plugin installed so I've got a development environment. I've also downloaded the Air SDK for Windows as well, but its likely redundant. None of the example projects in Aptana are of any help either. I've also Googled and answer, I'm very skilled at finding thing online but this is one thing that's eluded me.
Can anyone help this super-newbie out?
so if you'd like to start working with AIR I suggest a couple of resource that can save you everyday:
FLEX and AIR:
JS and AIR:
IN particular in DEVNET pages you can find tons of samples and tutorials that could be helpful for you.
FInally, if you want code snippets, take a look at AIR cookbook online ( http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/communityengine/index.cfm?event=homepage&productId=4 )
The easiest and simplest way is to create an HTML page that loads your forum in an iframe. Use that web page as the root-content file of your AIR application descriptor XML. Test with the ADL tool, package with the ADT tool.
