Does anyone know (if at all possible) how to add an image to a HTML enabled dynamic text field in Flash (AS2) and successfully assign a hypertext link to it?

I'm currently using the code below which does load in the image and I do get the pointing hand tool as I roll over the image but the hyperlink doesn't work?

<a href="http://maps.google.com/" target="_blank"><img src="googlemap.jpg"></a>

Thanks,

Mark

how are you doing it assigning it to the textfield?

this works.

blah.htmlText = "<a href=\"http://maps.google.com\" target=\"_blank\"><img src = \"1_p1.jpg\"><a>";

Hi blue-genie,

You are correct, that does work.

I've now discovered that it works for me too when used on it's own, however, if I add anything before the <a href= , the link becomes partially disabled, as if being covered by something.

e.g.

blah.htmlText = "Hello World <a href=\"http://maps.google.com\" target=\"_blank\"><img src = \"1_p1.jpg\"><a>";

If your 1_1p1.jpg is, say 200px high, clicking on the top of the image does nothing, but clicking on the bottom half works.

Have you any idea why this might be happening?

Thanks,

Mark

your problem with the hello world part is because you'r breaking the string

so "Hello World " + <a href etc should work.
can't replicate the issue with the top half bottom half?

upload your file? if it aint too big?
