Flash Problem linking button to url


Ive got a prolem with a Flash File Ive been sent to edit. Its difficult as the original file has layers which arent named in a sensible manner.

Theare are a number of buttons which Ive edited the link urls on. There is one however which doesnt work when I use the on release { get url code.

I can send the file by email to anyone who can help.

Hi Tinybear,

Hi TinyBear,
Problem solved, i've sent you the fla file.

THe problem is because the "jargon explained" is a BUTTON instance where it is supposed to be a movie clip instance. To solve the problem:
1- take the away the "jargon explained" button from the MAIN timeline
2- insert the "jargon explained" MOVIE CLIp inside instead --> inside your LIbrary folder, look for newlink movie clip. This is where your "jargon explained" movie clip is.
3. Edit the "jargon explained" movie clip and at the end of the timeline put
on(release) {
4. Now test and run :)

Cheers m8 :)
