Adding Hyperlink in email body

Is there a way by which we can send an email with hyperlink in it. I tried the following, but the link does not appear and it is treated as plain text. Is it anyways possible?


var request:InvokeRequest = new InvokeRequest();
request.action = "bb.action.COMPOSE";
request.target = 'sys.pim.uib.email.hybridcomposer';
var sBody:String = "<a href='http://www.google.com/' target='_blank'>Test Content!</a>";
sBody = encodeURIComponent(sBody);
request.uri = "mailto:address@domain.com?cc=address2@domain.com&bcc=address3@domain.com&subject=A%20Subject&body="+sBody;

Re: Adding Hyperlink in email body

Not certain if the interface supports HTML. I have not seen where you can control the content type (text,html,multi-part). You will probably need to leave it as text/plain for now. If you just do the URL in text, the receiving client should pick it up as a link.
