    How to launch a 2nd browser window

    JoeFree999999
      Hi,

      Have a Flex application and need to launch a 2nd browser window that would contain a help system for the application. Then the application user can view the two browser windows side (the application) by side (help system).

      How can this be done in Flex?

      Thanks.

          Hi,
          If you need to launch the window with certain params (like x,y and size) you can use ExternalInterface to call a javascript function that will launch a custom window.

          If you just want a new window to open, you can use NavigateToURL:
          import flash.net.*;

          private function openHelp():void {
          var path:String = "pathToHelp.html";
          navigateToURL(new URLRequest(path), "_blank");
          }

          hope that helps.
