program: Macromedia Flash MX2004 - actionscript

I am trying to link a button to open a webpage WHEN CLICKED to google for example. I found this code on macromedias help but I keep getting an error.

homepage_btn.onRelease = function () {
  getURL("", "_blank");

This is the error I get:

**Error** Scene=Scene 1, layer=Layer 1, frame=1:Line 1: Statement must appear within on handler
     homepage_btn.onRelease = function () {

Total ActionScript Errors: 1        Reported Errors: 1

Thanks for your help
