Hi, I'm trying to create some buttons for my web site using FlashMX 04. I created 5 buttons and they are in the Library. I now need to add url's to each button. I drag the first button onto the stage, right-click and edit. I insert keyframes in the UP Over and Down frames. I select the Down frame and click the plus sign in Actions - Global Functions - Browser/Network - getURL but the "getURL" is grayed out. What am I doing wrong?
