AIR Usage

Login sample. find more samples in repository
import com.myflashlab.air.extensions.fb.*;


// Add these listeners right after initializing the ANE but don't call any other method before FacebookEvents.INIT happens
Facebook.listener.addEventListener(FacebookEvents.INIT, onAneInit);
Facebook.listener.addEventListener(FacebookEvents.INVOKE, onAneInvoke);

// You can receive the hashKey for your Android certificate like below.
if (Facebook.os == Facebook.ANDROID) trace("hash key = ", Facebook.hashKey);

function onAneInvoke(e:FacebookEvents):void
	trace("onAneInvoke: " + decodeURIComponent(e.deeplink));

function onAneInit(e:FacebookEvents):void
	// check if user is already logged in or not
	_accessToken = Facebook.auth.currentAccessToken;
		IMPORTANT: in practice you should let users click on a login button 
		not logging them automatically.
	if(!_accessToken) toLogin();

function toLogin():void
		It is recommended to login users with minimal permissions. Later, whe your app 
		needs more permissions, you can call "Facebook.auth.login" again with more permissions.
		To ask for publish permissions, set the first parameter to "true".

	var permissions:Array = [Permissions.public_profile, Permissions.user_friends,];
	Facebook.auth.login(false, permissions, loginCallback);
	function loginCallback($isCanceled:Boolean, $error:Error, $accessToken:AccessToken, $recentlyDeclined:Array, $recentlyGranted:Array):void
			trace("login error: " + $error.message);
				trace("login canceled by user");
				trace("$recentlyDeclined: " + $recentlyDeclined);
				trace("$recentlyGranted: " + $recentlyGranted);
				_accessToken = $accessToken;
				trace("token: " + _accessToken.token);
				trace("userId: " + _accessToken.userId);
				trace("declinedPermissions: " + _accessToken.declinedPermissions);
				trace("grantedPermissions: " + _accessToken.grantedPermissions);
				trace("expiration: " + new Date(_accessToken.expiration).toLocaleDateString());
				trace("lastRefresh: " + new Date(_accessToken.lastRefresh).toLocaleDateString());

  1. This ANE is dependent on the following ANEs. Download them from here:
    • overrideAir.ane
    • bolts.ane
    • androidSupport-appcompatV7.ane
    • androidSupport-arch.ane
    • androidSupport-cardviewV7.ane
    • androidSupport-core.ane
    • androidSupport-customtabs.ane
    • androidSupport-v4.ane
  2. AIR SDK V30+
  3. To compile on iOS, you will need to add following Facebook frameworks to your Air SDK.
  • download package and extract them on your computer.
    • FBSDKCoreKit.framework
    • FBSDKLoginKit.framework
    • FBSDKShareKit.framework
    • Bolts.framework
    • FBSDKMarketingKit.framework
    • FBSDKMessengerShareKit.framework
    • FBSDKPlacesKit.framework
  • you will see some xxxxxx.framework files. just copy them as they are and go to your AdobeAir SDK.
  • when in your Air SDK, go to "\lib\aot\stub". here you will find all the iOS frameworks provided by Air SDK by default.
  • paste the facebook frameworks you had downloaded into this folder and you are ready to build your project.
  1. Android SDK 19 or higher
  2. iOS 9.0 or higher
  3. In case you see the following error messages when compiling for iOS, check out this video clip to know how to resolve it.
ld: library not found for -lclang_rt.ios


Undefined symbols ___isOSVersionAtLeast
  1. There's aknown bug as follow on windows machines when compiling for iOS. To avoid that, you will need a Mac to compile your project for iOS. We are hoping that Adobe would fix this problem soon so the app can be correctly packaged on Windows machines also. vote up here
ld: in C:\AIR_SDK\lib\aot/stub/FBSDKCoreKit.framework/FBSDKCoreKit(FBSDKApplicationDelegate.o), unsupported address encoding (A5) of personality function in CIE for architecture arm64

Usage WIKI


Nov 17, 2018 - V4.35.1

  • Works with OverrideAir ANE V5.6.1 or higher
  • Works with ANELAB V1.1.26 or higher

Sep 10, 2018 - V4.35.0

  • Updated to the official Facebook SDK V4.35.0.
  • Remove the androidSupport ANE from your project and from your manifest. com.myflashlab.air.extensions.dependency.androidSupport
  • We have split the androidSupport dependency into smaller ANEs for better performance. You need to include the following ANEs to your project instead of one androidSupport ANE:
    • <extensionID>com.myflashlab.air.extensions.dependency.bolts</extensionID>
    • <extensionID>com.myflashlab.air.extensions.dependency.androidSupport.appcompatV7</extensionID>
    • <extensionID>com.myflashlab.air.extensions.dependency.androidSupport.arch</extensionID>
    • <extensionID>com.myflashlab.air.extensions.dependency.androidSupport.cardviewV7</extensionID>
    • <extensionID>com.myflashlab.air.extensions.dependency.androidSupport.core</extensionID>
    • <extensionID>com.myflashlab.air.extensions.dependency.androidSupport.customtabs</extensionID>
    • <extensionID>com.myflashlab.air.extensions.dependency.androidSupport.v4</extensionID>
  • Added property appId to AccessToken instances
  • For expert users, now the ANE supports manual generation of AccessToken instance using the newly introduced method Facebook.auth.manualInit. If you don't know what this method is, do not use it at all. Eventually, to use the generated AccessToken, we have made the Facebook.auth.currentAccessToken property writeable also so you can pass the AccessToken instance to it.
  • New method Facebook.auth.isCurrentAccessTokenActive introduced. This will tell you if the current AccessToken is active or not.
  • Upgrade to Facebook Graph API Version 3.1
  • Add the following receiver tag to your manifest:
    android:name="com.facebook.CurrentAccessTokenExpirationBroadcastReceiver" android:exported="false">
        <action android:name="com.facebook.sdk.ACTION_CURRENT_ACCESS_TOKEN_CHANGED" />
  • Add the following provider tag to your manifest but make sure you are replacing [PACKAGE_NAME] with your own app package name. Don't forget that Android AIR apps adds air. to the beginning of your package name.
    android:exported="false" />
