I am unable to get the url to be clickable.  Any ideas??


for (i=0; i<3; i++) {
      _root.createEmptyMovieClip("menuName"+i, 600+i);
      eval("_root.menuName"+i).createTextField("recentBroadcast"+i+"_txt", 501+i, 435, 45+(i*17), 140, 20);
      eval("menuName"+i+".recentBroadcast"+i+"_txt").htmlText = "hello world";
      eval("recentBroadcast"+i+"_txt").html = true;
      myFormat = new TextFormat();
      myFormat.color = 0x000000;
      myFormat.font = "Arial";
      myFormat.bold = true;
      myFormat.url = "http://www.yahoo.com";
      eval("menuName"+i+".recentBroadcast"+i+"_txt").setTextFormat(myFormat);
}

add the line:
       eval("menuName"+i+".recentBroadcast"+i+"_txt").html = true;

before you set htmlText (you aren't setting it to html currently)

Cool!

I don't think the order of the lines actually matter too much (I was probably more specific than I needed to be!), as long as it's called before the setTextFormat
