I am new to using AIR API's and I am not aware if we can open a particular directory in the OS window. I can see that there are api's for browsing files for saving etc , but can I open a file explorer window with a give directory path. For e.g. lets say I want to open the My Documents window programmatically from my Air App.
No, not currently without the help of some 3rd party tools that I can't remember the name of. Basically a wrapper like Zinc. But, you should add a feature request, here.
Edit: ooo, i see you're and adobe employee, so maybe you can walk down the hall and add your feature request
Thanks for reply. I will put up feature request. Meanwhile, I could figure out opening window by something like this.
navigateToUrl(new URLRequest(File.documentsDirectory.nativePath)) and this serves my purpose.
No way! Very nice idea, that had never crossed my mind! This is what I love about forums, you learn something new every single day. Awesome!
