    Linking button to HTML URL opening in same window

    Sawtooth500

      So the following code allows us to open an HTML link with the click of a button:

       

      function callLink(event:MouseEvent):void

      {

          var myURL:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://www.adobe.com/");

          navigateToURL(myURL);

      }

       

      The problem is that this always opens the link in a new window. So what if I want it to open in the same window? Changing the line to:

       

      var myURL:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://www.adobe.com/","_self");

       

      results in a compiler error.

       

       

       

      I am embedding this swf on a web page of my own, so there are no security concerns regarding giving flash access.
