Hello -

Iam getting so much spam I woule like to use the hrml that reCAPTCHA generated (Protected email addresses).  Is there a way to change the code on the button from this:

on (release ) {

 to this:

shaw<a href="" onclick="'', '', 'toolbar=0,scrollbars=0,location=0,statusbar=0,menubar=0,resizable=0,width=500,height=300'); return false;" title="Reveal this e-mail address">...</a>

Many thanks,

Great link.  When publishing, per the video, I am getting this error:

**Error** Symbol=Contact MC, layer=Layer 1, frame=1:Line 1: Statement must appear within on handler
     launch_btn.onRelease = function() {

Total ActionScript Errors: 1        Reported Errors: 1

My code (as indicated on the video) on the button is:

launch_btn.onRelease = function() {

Error corrected - I was adding AS to button instead of frame.  I'll let you  know how it goes.

This helped though I found out that the code will not work within Flash.  Many thanks!
