I have tried the example at :

http://livedocs.adobe.com/labs/air/1...st.html#method


Code:
<html>
    <head>
      <script src="AIRAliases.js" />
      <script>
function init() {
            var url = "http://www.mydomain.com/client.php";
            var request = new air.URLRequest(url);
            air.navigateToURL(request);
}

var addBridge = function(){
     document.getElementById('child').contentWindow.parentSandboxBridge = interfaceObject;
     window.runtime.trace('js bridge call');
}
</script>
    </head>
    <body onload='init()'>
<a href="#" id="child" onClick="clickButton();">link to open web browser</a>
    </body>
</html>

But i can not seem to make links in html loaded from remote domain in mx:HTML component open a default browser.

Has anyone done this?This code is running in the html of the remote page loaded inside of the following air application.


Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:WindowedApplication xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute"
    showFlexChrome="false" showStatusBar="false" showGripper="true" showTitleBar="false"

    horizontalScrollPolicy="off" verticalScrollPolicy="off"
    xmlns:chrome="com.xd.components.chrome.*"
    xmlns:sync="com.xd.components.sync.*"
    xmlns:controlbar="com.xd.components.controlbars.*"  viewSourceURL="srcview/index.html"
    applicationComplete="init()"
    >

    <mx:Style source="assets/dark_default.css" />
   
<mx:Script><![CDATA[
import flash.net.URLRequest;
       
public function clickButton():void{
var request : URLRequest = new URLRequest('http://www.mydomain.com/client.php');
navigateToURL(request )   
} 


private var testInterface:Object = new Object();

private function init():void
{
testInterface.clickButton = this.clickButton;
}

private function addBridgeObject():void
{
trace("Added bridge object");
html.domWindow.interfaceObject = testInterface;
}


]]></mx:Script>

How can i get the links in the remote webpage to open the default system browser (firefox, IE, etc..) ?

I get the following error on line 7 of the loaded html page in the debugger.


TypeError: Undefined value


i think this means that the value is not defined? or cant access the function

air.URLRequest


Which is declared in the AIRAliases.js file for sure i checked.
also when clicking the hyper link in the page i get


ReferenceError: Can't find variable: clickButton


TIA,
