Ext JS announces enhanced support for Adobe AIR

The team at Ext JS announced today several major new enhancements to the Ext.air package today including the addition of several new classes:

  • Ext.air.MusicPlayer – a more advanced version of Ext.air.Sound designed for playing mp3’s and podcasts
  • Ext.air.Notify – a new notification class for displaying user notifications
  • Ext.air.VideoPanel – allows for embedding of Flash based video while maintaining the same functionality as an Ext.Panel
  • Ext.air.Clipboard – a more friendly Ext JS way of manipulating the clipboard

In addition, Aaron also announced the availability of a new Adobe AIR sample application (.air) called ExtPlayer, including source code, that demonstrates some of these new API’s in action. For more information, be sure to check out Aaron’s post.

Here is an example of how to display a notification using Ext.air.Notify function:

var msg = 'Title: {0}<br/>Artist: {1}';
var sample = new Ext.air.Notify({
msg: String.format(msg, id3info.songName, id3info.artist),
icon: '../famfamfam/music.png'
});

  4. When I install an Adobe Air app with Ubuntu, it runs through the installation process, but then nothing happens. I can’t find the executable to launch the application. What do I do?
