@John: I’m with you: I wasn’t too happy when I realized that I wouldn’t be able to use the jQuery Slider UI library for my color picker AIR app ( because of the sandbox. The sandbox examples I found were too obtuse for me, so I ended up writing my own sliding functions. Fortunately, a lot of the basic jQuery selector functions work without a sandbox, and you can get away with using the standard onLoad JS event instead of the jQuery Ready event to initialize your event handlers.

@Jonathan: very cool post. I’m much more comfortable programming in HTML/CSS/JS than I am with Flex, so I’m always happy when I come across a well-written AIR example in those technologies.
