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 (OverrideAir.os == OverrideAir.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("expiredPermissions: " + _accessToken.expiredPermissions);
				trace("expiration: " + new Date(_accessToken.expiration).toLocaleDateString());
				trace("lastRefresh: " + new Date(_accessToken.lastRefresh).toLocaleDateString());
				trace("dataAccessExpirationDate: " + new Date(_accessToken.dataAccessExpirationDate).toLocaleDateString());

    • FBSDKShareKit.framework
    • FBSDKPlacesKit.framework
  • you will see some xxxxxx.framework files. copy them as they are and go to your AdobeAIR SDK.
  • when in your Air SDK, go to "\lib\aot\stub". there 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 10.0 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 a known 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
