How to create an Actionscript AIR project in Flash Builder

In Flash Builder 4, I used to follow these steps to create an ActionScript AIR project:

  1. Go to File > New > Flex Project.
  2. Create a project as usual, making sure “Desktop” is chosen as the Application Type.
  3. Rename the default application MXML file to something temporary.
  4. Create a new ActionScript file with the name of the application (and make sure it extends Sprite).
  5. Right click on the new ActionScript file, and choose “Set as Default Application.” This renames the application descriptor file accordingly.
  6. Delete the old temporary MXML file.

Not very smooth. Fortunately, in Flash Builder “Burrito” (still a preview release), there’s an ActionScript Desktop (AIR) project. To create an ActionScript AIR project in “Burrito,” all you have to do is:

  1. Select File > New > ActionScript Project.
  2. Set up your project as usual and make sure the “Application Type” is set to “Desktop.”


On Improving Privacy: Managing Local Storage in Flash Player

The Adobe team work hards to add new features in flash players. They are

1) LSO(Local storage object): To allow user to clear LSOs from the browser settings.

2) Working on redesign on Flash Player Settings Manager. To access the Flash Player Settings Manager directly from your computer’s Control Panels or System Preferences on Windows, Mac and Linux, so that they’re even easier to locate and use.
