I'm trying to accurately add a hyperlink in my .fla so it
will link to a URL. I'm very rusty with Flash, especially
I've tried the getURL action and that didn't really work, so
I used onRelease and that seems better. However, my file isn't
working everytime, and it seems like I have to double click for the
link to work.
Let me describe my file a bit so you can better advise me.
It's a multi-layered .fla with about 200 frames (say) and I
figured to get it to react like a button, I put a layer at the top
and created a box over the section I'd like to link (gave it an
alpha of 1% so it's completely transparent)...then I went to the
last frame and added the same keyframe. Mind you, I converted the
box graphic to a button. I think this is where I'm getting
confused. The action is on the first frame so it does it know to
"flow" throughout the timeline??
I hope this makes sense...I need to do something very simple
and it could be the way my file is set up that's hindering me.
I just finished a program with a link in which I used the
no problems. I wonder if it has anything to do with your
button. First is it a button? If so, you wouldn't need to worry
about transparency. you can leave, the first 3 (visible) states
blank (as in a key frame followed by two blank frames) and create a
"rectangle" on the 4th hit state to receive the click.
The rectangle is not visible and can be made large enough to
ensure that your button responds.
