Let's take a look at a simple AIR application. If you don't have the Exercise Files, you can just go to File > New and choose Adobe AIR 2 to create your own AIR app. From there, just treat it like you would a normal application. So you can add animations, ActionScript, anything you would put in a normal application that you learned in this title. So I'll just click Cancel. I am going to show you my application in the Flash Player and then walk you through it on the Timeline. So let's take a look in the Flash Player. Command+Return on the Mac, Ctrl+Enter on the PC.
So I have several different buttons and then when you click on them, pictures come up and there is some text. There is also a video that plays. So if you want to see how this app works, you can double-click the animation's movie clip to enter its Timeline. From there, you can take a look at my ActionScript code. This is the old code that I showed in the ActionScript chapter. For information about how to create similar code, see Chapter 19 in this title. So it's pretty much just a few frames, and some ActionScript code that controls it.
So again, you can create your own applications by going to File > New and choosing Adobe AIR 2, and you can treat an AIR file just like any other application that you create using Flash.
