    Asfunction- Hypertext Link

    SM6601 Level 1
      I'm trying to use the Asfuction to create a hypertext link in a dynamic text field that will navigate to another frame label . I tried to use the following and it doesn't work-

      Beat_Poets.htmlText = "<a href=\"asfunction:gotoAndPlay("Howl");
      \">Howl</
      a><br>";
      }


      Does anyone have a solution?

          SM6601,

          > Beat_Poets.htmlText = "<a href=\"asfunction:gotoAndPlay("Howl");
          > \">Howl</
          > a><br>";
          > }

          The asfunction protocol doesn't accept function calls and parameters the
          way those are normally used. With asfunction, you name the function first,
          then optionally provide a single string that contains your parameters.

          e.g.
          asfunction:gotoAndPlay,Howl

          The command separates the two. In this case, you only need the one
          parameter. If your function accepts many parameters, you must include in
          that function -- custom coding, here -- a way to separate the parameters
          from one another.
