Hello,

I am having a problem with getting links in a SWF, which is embedded in a Dashboard Widget, to open a URL.

The links are all calling an external JS method which calls widget.getURL. The SWF uses the AS ExternalInterface.call method to access the JS method.

This is simply not working. Anyone know why this might not work or has anyone been successful at embedding a SWF file into a Dashboard widget with external links?

Also, if anyone knows of any additional support site(s) related to Dashboard widgets (perhaps one from Apple -- I have looked everywhere on the Apple site and also called Apple directly but with no luck).

I am simply trying to find whether or not this is actually possible and/or what the best way of doing this might be.

Thank you.

Sorry, Flash files don't work well in Dashboard widgets. They don't receive clicks properly hence your troubles.
