Develop Irregular Shaped AIR Application

Posted by Charles | February 6, 2008 .

If you were a Windows developers you might still remember the day that you discovered you can write a irregular shaped Windows application to impress your peers and bosses. I was wondering how that could be done using Adobe Flex or AIR. Well, there is a answer from Merhl.

Apparently this had been down using Flash CS3 and there is a demo and tutorial called iSquare. But we are not Flash designer so I’d stick with Merhl’s AIR way. This Krispy Kreme AIR application is the result.

First he created a image file and cleaned it up at Fireworks (obviously he’s a good old Macromedia dude). Then there are several changes need to be made at the appname-app.xml file:

<systemChrome>none</systemChrome>

<transparent>true</transparent>

<visible>true</visible>

Then change the Style tag in the CSS file.

Application
{
backgroundColor: “”;
background-image:””;
}

That’s it. Nice and simple. Love it.
