You don't give a link to other page like this.

Instead create a invisible button in the flash movie equal to the size of your movie and place it in the topmost layer in the movie.

Give the action to the button as:

On (Release)
      Get URL ("yourpage.htm")
End On

Thats it

hi,
you do not understand.
i need the link not inside the flash,
but in the HTML (in order to count the clicks.)

You don't link to the flash movie. You should embed the flash movie into another HTML page, then link to that page.

You've got the source for embedding the file. This simply needs to be put into a different file.

I think this is what you want...

What you will have to do in this case is create a html page and make a link on this page that would link to the html page containing the flash movie and hence you will be able to track the use clicks. Thus making it easier for you to keep track of the visitors.

Or an alternative is to use tools like ARIA by macromedia whic is a tracking tool available at www.macromedia.com

If you are requesting a web page from within a flash movie then you will not be able to count the clicks.

If you are linking to a web page containing a flash file from an html file then there should be no problem counting the clicks.

so can you tell me what is it that you are doing out of the two options?

Why don't you use the suggestion of making the flash movie a button that links to another HTML page.

That page can then increase the counter and open a third page which is the one you wish to link to.

TaDaaaaaah!

 You have to create a HTML doc, where you put your flash file.
  Then, link to this HTML doc.
