Is it possible to drag a file onto an AIR application icon to START the application using that file?
I'm aware that once the AIR app is open files can be dragged into it and it will also open the application when a file is dragged onto it (if the file type associations have been set) though without any of that file being used, but I'd like to be able to open it directly with the file I drag onto the app. Some sort of InitialStateVariable or such?
Yes (assuming that the basic operation is supported by
the operating system). You will get an InvokeEvent in your app with the
path to the dropped file in the arguments array.
This doesn't seem to work on Snow Leopard. Is there any think I should check?
Found out, lazy me!
