Hi,
I am trying to put that elusive first button into a flash header.
Here is the sample code.
We just want this to open the url.
Currently it is producing no error and no link to the next web page:
What should this Action Script look like?
Thanks.



function linkBridge(){
      getURL("CroKey.php", "_self");
}

BridgeButton2.addEventListener("click", linkBridge);

Try this.

linkBridge = new Object();
linkBridge.click = function(evt) {
      getURL("CroKey.php", "_self");
};
BridgeButton2.addEventListener("click", linkBridge);

or other way

BridgeButton2.onPress = function () {
    getURL("CroKey.php", "_self");
};

It looks good but it isn't generating a link action.

In php I would tag the code to make sure things were as I believe they are.  For instance I would put an echo in at the button click to determine if the mouse event was actually registering at all.

Any suggestions for this in flash?

both example works here.

one error could be not using GET action

getURL("CroKey.php", "_self", "GET");

print $_GET globals in php.

or use

getURL("CroKey.php", "_self", "POST");

print $_POST globals in php.
