Did you know…

… that with Adobe AIR you can easily exchange data between the desktop and AIR applications? For example, you can drag cells of a spreadsheet and drop them onto a DataGrid or drag a chart to the desktop.

If you have Flex 3 Beta, check the help documentation for the flash.desktop package and read up on the ClipboardManager, the DragManager, and more.

See Christophe Coenraet’s blog for an example of dragging images and data from an AIR application to the desktop.
