Using Text as Hyperlinks in Flash6
Posted on 2003-03-26
Has something changed in Flash 6 regarding Hyperlinks?
I typed out some text, converted it to a button and then added a
getURL command. When the mouse rolled over the button it changed to
a finger icon as it was supposed to; however, when I test the movie or
publish it and then run the swf, the mouse pointer changes to bar icon and
will not navigate to the link. I can export the text as a gif, reimport it and
change it to a button, then make the url work correctly, but I lose image
quality doing that. I'm 99% certain that I created hyperlink buttons from
text in Flash5. Am I missing something here???
