hi :)

this is a very stupid newby question.

i can't figure out how to call a url on a click on a button, i understand that i need to have httpservices... so i have htis:

<mx:HTTPService id="sanData"

but, what do i put for "onclick"?

this is what i'm doing:

public function submitForm():void

<mx:HTTPService id="formSender" url="http://google.com"/>

and this is what im getting:

[RPC Fault faultString="Error #1090: XML parser failure: element is malformed." faultCode="Client.CouldNotDecode" faultDetail="null"]

Do you want the browser to load google.com? If this is the case, you don't want to use HTTPService. Instead, you want to use the navigateToURL function (http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/201/html/passingarguments_086_11.html). The HTTPService is meant to load the actual content from an URL, such as XML data, into a Flex application.
