I am looking to create an AIR application and wished to use Photoshop & Catalyst for design and Builder for development but I came across a problem. When I import my catalyst file (.fxb) into Builder, it goes straight into a web application and does not give me a choose to make it into a desktop application.
Is this not possible? Or is there some other way to do this so that my catalsy file becomes a desktop project (AIR-RIDA) and not a web project (RIA)?
Thank you all in advance,
If you right click on the project in Flash Builder and go down to the Add/Change Project type menu you'll see an option that says "Convert to Desktop/Adobe AIR Project". That should do it for you. You just need to make sure to change the root tag from <s:Window /> to <s:WindowedApplication />.
If you want to use your own chrome and not the default chrome that comes with <s:WindowedApplication /> then instead of changing the root tag you have to go in and change the app.xml file and make sure the settings for customChrome and visible are set correctly.
