    How to embed html (weblinks) in Spark TextArea?!


      Hi everybody,


      We want to put html-code (especially links) into our TextArea. We were looking for some examples, but in no example the links were working. So user couldn t click at the link to enter a new page. Anybody any suggestions or a good tutorial?


      Even the example at the adobe page isn't working: (we tried firefox and safari on windows and os x)

          We fixed the problem in our case. Our mistake was, that we did set the attribute selectable to false instead of editable. Afterwards it worked perfect for us.


          Spark Text Area:

          <s:TextArea id="content" editable="false"/>


          Import Text:

          content.textFlow = TextFlowUtil.importFromString( yourHtmlText:String );



          In mx.controls it works like that:

          <mx1:TextArea id="myTextArea" />


          Import Text:

          myTextArea.htmlText = yourHtmlText:String;
