NavigateToURL to local file

Sep 27, 2011 9:34 AM



I need print a HTM local file and a PDF external file. To select print application and opening the file, i'm using navigateToURL method.


This technic is working to the PDF external file, but, when i try to open my local file HTM,  the application is not working.


Maybe, i have something bad at my code. Or it's security problem. Any idea?


var fileLocal:File = File.documentsDirectory.resolvePath(data.URL_LOCAL);

if (fileLocal.exists)


          var rootLocalfile:String = fileLocal.url;




                    navigateToURL(new URLRequest(rootLocalfile));


           catch (e:Error)


                     trace("Error: " + e.message);




I need print the HTM local file without using the new AIR 3. That is possible?


I tried to use File.openWithDefaultApplication, but it's not supported to AIR for Android. Although, it isn't specified at documentation of Adobe.

Someone know where is it written.
