BCS Flash Builder 4.5 Execute URL Routine

There are those occasions when our flex application will need to interface with existing sites on the world wide web.  To invoke a URL in flash builder is slightly different than any other programming scenario I have used.

I have written a small routing that handles URL requests.  The code is as follows”

protected function XQTCmd(cmd : String): void
			{
				var urlReq:URLRequest = new URLRequest(cmd);
				navigateToURL(urlReq, "_blank");
			}

Place the routine in the root MXML and invoke the routine by using a coded statement indicated below.

protected function ABWBtn_clickHandler(event:MouseEvent):void
			{
				XQTCmd("http://localhost/bm02/bm02-debug/bm02.html")
			}

This code can be initiated from any event available to the MXML application.
