    TextField links in flash content not firing when embedded in Flex

    shekel2000 Level 1

      A simple problem, i hope someone knows of a simple solution:

      (zip with source code attached)


      a text field with this code

      link.htmlText = "<a href=\"http://www.google.com\">google</a>"

      the result swf (from flash) is with a working link.


      Now i embed this swf file into flex in the following way:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute">
          <mx:SWFLoader source="@Embed(source='link.swf')" />


      (this is the entire code...)


      And now - the link is not working...


      I would guess a security issue, but i have other examples with calls to flash.net.navigateToURL that works also when embedded, without any security configurations...


      Any ideas??
