Using SWFLoader in dashboard deployed to BI Launch pad

Has anyone used the SWFLoader component to embed a Dashboard 4.0 dashboard and then export/view the dashboard to BI Lanuchpad. I can successfully embed the swf from a local disk i.e c:\dashboard. but when I try to use the URL from the hyperlink it will not load. I also tried OpenDocument and DocumentDownload but I just may not have the proper syntax for those options.

    The SWFLoader control lets you load one Flex application into another Flex application as a SWF file. It has properties that let you scale its contents. It can also resize itself to fit the size of its contents. By default, content is scaled to fit the size of the SWFLoader control. The SWFLoader control can also load content on demand programmatically, and monitor the progress of a load operation.

    The SWFLoader control also lets you load the contents of a GIF, JPEG, PNG, SVG, or SWF file into your application, where the SWF file does not contain a Flex application, or a ByteArray representing a SWF, GIF, JPEG, or PNG.

      Thanks for the details on the component.

      You can in fact load an Xcelsius dashboard with the SWF Loader. My issue is the proper url syntax when the swf to load has been placed in Business Objects Platform via Export to Platform.
