HtmlTextBlock: Navigate to url in WinRT

Does anyone have solution for making the LinkGenerator navigate to url (via browser), when the link is tapped on the HtmlTextBlock for WinRT?

The source code has some uncommented code, which I think needs to be converted to WinRT compatible code:
//action = delegate {
//if (NavigationState.TryBeginNavigating())

//hr.Command = new RelayCommand(action);

The generator has been implemented and works in WinRT. Use FixedHtmlTextBlock and a ScrollViewer because HtmlTextBlock has been removed in WinRT...


The change is only available directly from SVN or download, and will be later available as NuGet update...

Is it working for you?

It is working fine, but I got an InvalidOperationException when launching the browser, which disappeared when I changed CreateLinkAction() to the following:

return () => Launcher.LaunchUriAsync(new Uri(link));
