I want to open .pdf, images(.jpeg,.png,.gif), text, and office documents(doc,ppt,excel) within the AIR desktop applications.
I have seen some examples opening pdf and images but haven't come accross opening office documents. The formatting of the text has to be retained for ex - block diagrams etc etc.
More or less I am looking for Objective C's documentWebView class' equivalent in Flex/AIR so that I give the file(of the above mentioned file type) it takes care of rendering within the AIR desktop application.
Can anyone please pour some thoughts here so as to achieve this. Needless to say, I am relatively new to Flex.
