How can I save my application state?



I'm very very new on Playbook development. I'm reading Tablet OS SDK for Adobe Air Development Guide and it talks about save state when users move app to background.


Is there a predefined format to save state or I have to make my own?

Search the forum or the web for examples of using SharedObject.  It's the simplest if your "state" is not really complex.  Depending on how your app works etc, this may be basically a trivial bit of code for you.

You can also save state in an XML file.  Look at File class and FileSteam to save files and the XML to parse the xml content.
