I've been messing with Flash for about an hour, so I really
don't what I'm doing, nor am I a web designer - I'm trying to make
something work as a favor to a friend.
I'm trying to hide an email address for a mailto: contact
link, so I've embedded it in a movie. What I'd like to do though,
is have the actionscript load immediately once the swf is loaded so
a user doesn't have to click on anything in the movie. Basically,
the idea is to have code like <a href="email.swf"
title="contact">Contact</a> where when the user clicks the
Contact link, it loads the swf, executes the mailto:, fires up
their mailer and voila.
The actionscript I'm using now is pretty simple, but like I
said - i'd really like to be able to do away with having to click
Funny enough, I figured it out - I removed all the layers and
just put getURL actionscript in the bottom layer and it was as easy
as that. The only issue I'm having now is it always loads a new
page when the link to the swf is clicked. Any way around
