    Google Search

      Can anyone please help me?

      I was wondering How I would be able to add a google search bar onto a .swf.

      The bar must be able to open a new window to a google searsh page of what you typed in the box. The bar must also add a set text before what you actually tpe in.

      So if You type "man" into the bar and press a button a new window will appear showing the searh results to "the man". "the" will not be text that is added to the search but you get the idea.

          Add a input TextField -- assign an instance name: "myGoogleQuery"
          Add a button -- assign an instance name: "myGoogleButton"

          Add this script:

          myGoogleButton.queryTextField = myGoogleQuery;
          myGoogleButton.onRelease = function(){
          getUrl(" http://www.google.com/search?q=" + this.queryTextField.text,
