    Using on(release) to dynamic text

    jl2000 Level 1
      Hi -

      I have a movie clip that acts like an Index (Table of Contents) of the site, where I am using a dynamic text area. I need to have the text area scrollable because the Index is a very long list. The challenge is that I need to link entries in the Index to SWFs in the overall application.

      I know that html tags and getURL actions won't work.

      If it was a button on the stage I would use something like -

      on (release) {
      navTo("Intro_1.swf");
      }

      and it would work great.

      But the actionscript has to be attached to text in a scrolling text area...not a button.

      How can I wrap text like this in Actionscript to make links to swfs??

      TIA your help.

      JL
