    Problem opening links from remote website

    soltrinox1 Level 1

      I have tried the example at :


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

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

      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.

      <?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"
          width="408" height="710" frameRate="45"
          horizontalScrollPolicy="off" verticalScrollPolicy="off"
          xmlns:controlbar="com.xd.components.controlbars.*"  viewSourceURL="srcview/index.html"

          <mx:Style source="assets/dark_default.css" />
      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;


          <!-- Application Custom Chrome -->
          <chrome:CustomChrome top="10" bottom="10" left="10" right="10" />
          <!-- ContentBackgroundArea -->
          <mx:VBox top="11" bottom="11" left="11" right="11" styleName="contentBackground" horizontalScrollPolicy="off" verticalScrollPolicy="off" >
          <!-- ContentArea -->
          <mx:Canvas visible="true" top="66" bottom="34" left="11" right="11" styleName="contentArea" horizontalScrollPolicy="off" verticalScrollPolicy="auto" >
              <chrome:BorderHighlight top="0" bottom="0" left="0" right="0" />
              <mx:Button click="clickButton()" />
      <mx:HTML id="html" location="http://www.mydomain.com/client.php" htmlDOMInitialize="addBridgeObject()" width="100%" height="100%"/>

          <!-- Application ControlBar -->
          <!-- Application StatusBar -->
          <chrome:StatusBar bottom="11" left="11" right="11" />

      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


      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
