Hi all,

I have messed aroundy with this for a while by myself trying to have this flash item going to a URL address when clicked on.

I just cant get it to work no matter what layer I put it on.
Read plenty of stuff on what to do, but obviously am missing something.

Actionscript 2.

thanks if you can help.

Please see fla attachement.
on (release) {

Open in new window

on (release) {

Remember the closing bracket.
Also make sure you have added this actionscript to the button itself and not to the timeline.

hi buddy,

on (release) {

is always given on a button object, not in layer.

If you need to give in layer, you need to call with button name.

like this; assume button name is "myButton".

myButton.onPress = function() {

can anyone open my flv file and describe the best way that I can make this button go to a url using _blank ?

I have the graffics there, should I convert to symbol or make a transparent box and make this a button, then put the actionscript 2 on it ?

The reason that I am asking to view the flv is because it took me a bit to get it where it is, and im sure that I have not layered it entirely correctly, so not sure where to put the transparent box for the button.

thanks for any help.
