i am a newbie in Flex/Air. I am developing an aura internet browser and i wish to make use of a virtual keyboard to create within the HTML pages.

I integrated this component as keyboard: http://www.uibuzz.com/2011/adobe/flex/github-flex-4-component-virtualkeyboard/ it really works well after i attempt to write inside a text area, but i'm not sure crafting within the html page.

EXAMPLE: To create in textarea, i have to refer to this as:

textarea.text = event.keyLabel;

how could i pass the string:


for an:

<mx:HTML id="HTML" .../>


I am hoping that's all obvious, thank u ahead of time for the help, and that i apologize for my bad british.


You should use the htmlText property
