Good Evening!

I am trying to open a facebook sharing dialog from my flash application.  With my existing code, it opens the share dialog in a new window, I can't seem to get it to open in the parent window.  Here is the code that I am using:

function shareClickHandler(evt:MouseEvent):void
{
    var varsShare:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
    varsShare.u = 'http://domain.com/pageN.html';
    varsShare.t = 'Title Page';

    var urlFacebookShare:URLRequest = new URLRequest('http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php');
    urlFacebookShare.data = varsShare;
    urlFacebookShare.method = URLRequestMethod.GET;

    navigateToURL(urlFacebookShare);
}



Thanks!
Rose

Good Morning HBP,

Thanks for the script, this is giving me a compile error.  Is this AS2 or AS3?  I need it to work in AS3.

Thanks!
