    Opening a file in its native application from Flex.

    messofaperson

      Is it possible to open a file on whatever native application the user runs it as?  Or even, at that, to simply open the directory it's in, in an explorer window?

       

      We have a search application and the frontend is in Flex, and I'm trying to find a way to do this, such that when a use double clicks on a result (in a datagrid - but that's trivial), it opens the file or at least the location of the file on the OS.

       

      Any system call where I can say system("explorer.exe " + filepath); or something?

       

      Any help would be appreciated.
