          Hi ,


          Check out the below code when you click "Navigate to Adobe.com" HyperLink it should redirect to adobe website.


          <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
          <mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"
              backgroundGradientColors="[#FFFFFF, #FFFFFF]">
                      import flash.events.TextEvent;

                      public function linkHandler(event:TextEvent):void {
                          myTA.text="The link was clicked.";
                          // Open the link in a new browser window.
                          navigateToURL(new URLRequest(event.text), '_blank')
              <mx:Label selectable="true" link="linkHandler(event);">
                      <![CDATA[<u><a href='event:http://www.adobe.com'>Navigate to Adobe.com.</a><u>]]>

              <mx:TextArea id="myTA"/>
