    Actionscript 3 and _self links

      Hi Guys,

       

      I'm trying to get a page to load in the same tab, instead of creating a new tab (like HTML target=""_self" instead of _blank)

       

      I've tried a few different things I've found on different forums, nothign seems to be working though

       

      This is what I'm trying..

       

      function gotoManitoba(event:MouseEvent):void

      {

      var targetURL:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://mydomain.com/flash/?p=44");

      navigateToURL(targetURL, "_self");

      }

      MB.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, gotoManitoba);

       

      It doesn't return an error, but the link doesn't work at all as long as the "_self" is in there.
