AIR Directory Listing Example

I was just playing around today trying to pick up some of the differences in AIR from Flex. The first and probably one of the reasons AIR applications can truly be considered desktop applications is the file system access. You have complete control over the file system like you would expect from an app running on the desktop. For my example app that I am writing I needed to be able to get a listing of files for a directory.

I decided to whip up an example so that I could show you just how easy it is to accomplish this task. This example is very basic but it shows you the real power and simplicity of the File class. This example has a text area and a browse button. When you click the browse button you will be able to select a directory. When the directory is selected all of the files will be displayed in the text box. It will not show you any directories and it will clear itself out when you select another directory. The image below shows a directory of files right off of my camera.
