    Thanks for reply me..... here i give you some detail about my work.... Actually, I'm working on an offline CD project which runs at fullscreen mode. I use search feature in my glossary and if the typed word not present in cd then there is a button which on pressing it search online. But there the issue is that I don't want to open internet explorer or firefox independently. Is there any way to open IE or firefox inside flash projector file? huh...
    Simply say can I embed IE or firefox in flash player? or any other suggestions please.....

    If you switch to using Air then you can try out the HTMLLoader class. There's an example right at the bottom of the page. That does exactly what you are after.

    The downside is that it then needs to be an Air application, not a projector file. That in turn means the end user needs to have the main Air application installed. There are Air wrappers though which get around that. I've never tried any of those myself though.

    Why not make the application with html and frames? Flash can trigger Javascript calls to load pages in another frame.
