In order to integrate with a third party library I need to send an Android Intent (which is designed to launch an activity). In java the code would be something like
Intent i = new Intent(getContext(), ExternalActivity.class);
Unfortunately, I cannot seem to find a way to do this is AIR. If it's possible at all, I suspect I involves flash.desktop.NativeApplication.dispatchEvent(), but I cannot seem to find any event type that will kick off native code.
All the best,
This isn't supported directly right now. You can build a hybrid Java/AIR app: http://www.jamesward.com/2011/05/11/extending-air-for-android/
In an upcoming release, creating such extensions will be supported directly.
