Re: basic question about AIR implementation on playbook

Your type of question has been pretty common...I'm no expert but it seems you will have to wait a while longer before any of those are officially supported by the new SDK, if and whenever it is going to be released. Hope this helps a bit!

Re: basic question about AIR implementation on playbook

The AIR runtime supports many features. It also supports profiles for different platforms (Dekstop, Mobile, and TV). The BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK supports the AIR "mobileDevice" profile. You can check out the different classes and features that are available for the different AIR profiles here:



The HTMLLoader class typically used when the AIR runtime has full WebKit integration, this full WebKit integration allows for JS/HTML based AIR application to be developer is not in the "mobileDevice" profile.


The "mobileDevice" profile and AIR 2.5 does support a new class called StageWebView:


This class leverages the native WebKit engine on the device and not in the AIR runtime.


Also you might want to look at the PlayBook specific API class that extends StageWebView called QNXStageWebView. There is not a lot of documentation at this point in time on a lot of specific APIs and they might not be in the finished product as currently available.
