Moving Adobe AIR Application

Posted by Shardul Singh Bartwal on October 18, 2010

Moving any air application is already provided feature with any air application if you are having title bar with it.
But let suppose you requirement is such that you dont require to show the title window.In that case if you want to
move your window with mouse on the any particular Display object then you can acheive this some thing like this.
Just call two function on that partiuclar display object the one for moving the application and another for stoping this
moving.Like below:-

private function onMouseDown(event : MouseEvent) :void

private function onMouseUp(event : MouseEvent) : void


I am using there this word as I m currently inside the WindowedApplication.

Hope you will enjoy this…….

    Yes only with this code. But you have to call these two methods on any particular component via which you want to move you application. Like let suppose you placed a image or button on your application and you want to move by pressing mouse on that then call these two method from that button or image. And also please note that your application should be small in size with respect to you monitor’s resolution other wise you will not have any place to move it……..
