Is there any way Flex can automatically open up on a set scedule? from a program like cron... or something of that nature.. ??
I have an application that perofmrs various tasks, I want to be able to open up the program if it is not already open and run a function within my actionscript file... Is this possible with flex ??
I hope I am making sense.
I am using Adobe Air... I forgot to mention that. I want this application to open up automatically, i don't think this framework will do that. WIll it?
To open an AIR application automatically on the client, you'll need to use something else on the machine that will launch it.
It may be possible--but I haven't explored it--to write an AIR application that will always run in the background and launch your other aplication on schedule. I know windows has--or used to have--a scheduler of sorts that you could use. I suspect a similar option exists on other operation systems.
But, you'll need some control over the OS to launch a program on schedule.
