Examples of Adobe® AIR™ with ActionScript 3 Code Provided

Here is a set of applications made with Adobe® AIR™. You will need to get the Adobe® AIR™ Runtime Environment. Air lets you run Flash files (and JavaScript/HTML/Ajax/Flex) on your desktop. It is free, fast and easy to install and seemingly less intrusive than Java.

Our students worked on Air assignments to make small widgets. Applications that might be fun or useful that makes use of the Air features. Air features include:

  • Dragging Files onto Flash to load a picture for instance
  • Using chromeless and transparent or semi-transparent windows
  • Reading and writing files to the desktop
  • Working with advanced HTML in Flash

Code is provided for the examples so you can see how things are done. There are descriptions that are semi-tutorial in nature as well. Please remember that these are prototype applications and may not be supported. Still, they are easy to install and uninstall to check them out! You uninstall through the Windows add and remove software panel.
