    Opening locally stored files

    dmills0180
      Hi - I'm slowly learning ActionScript...

      I've learned how to 'teach' a button to open a web page when it's clicked. Now I'd like to teach a button to open a file that is locally stored on the computer. For example; when I click a certain button, I want the file c:\...\sample.pdf to open (in it's native editor - outside of a web browser).

      Anybody know what function allows me to accomplish this?

      Thanks in advance!
