Hi,

I've got a Flash graphic sent to me and I need to upload it onto my site and have it point to a website. When clicked, I want it to send the user to a specified site just like a normal GIF would with the standard A tags. How do I do it!?!?

Any help would be VERY much appreciated!

hi,
ok so here is the deal, as far as i know you cant make flash file as a hyperlink but yes you
can always put a link within flash itself.
here is the self explentary link:
http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx/hyperlink.htm 

so you can open your flash file in flash and even if you are not a flash person
you can copy paste this code in action script window
on(release)
{
getURL("http://<website>","_blank");
}

you will also find this information in the link provided above.
If you still find problem i can just put a hyperlink on your file if you provide me the flash file.
As it will just take 5 min
