    Cant get my ad banner into a clickable link

    dmiddletonla

      Hi all - hoping someone can help me.

       

      I have created a simple ad banner in Flash CS5. I am trying to make it so that when I u/l the .swf to my site, the banner will be a clickable link that will take me to the desired place. I have found some tutorials on yt - one in particular was very good. I followed it to the tee, but it still does not work. The banner exports just fine, but there is no URL associated with it. I am using AS 3.0 and this is the code I have:


      import flash.events.MouseEvent;
      import flash.net.URLRequest;

      circle.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK,pressed);

      function pressed(e:MouseEvent):void
      {

       var url:String = "[http://www.umysite.com | http://www.umysite.com]"
       var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(url);
       navigateToURL(request,'_blank');
      }

       

      Can someone please tell me what I am missing here? Thank you!
