    link issues

    heath_edw
      i'm trying to get a small 'dockbar' animation going which will end up having three buttons to various parts of a website i'm building. unfortunately, i can't seem to get any link scripts to work. i have my buttons ready to go, but if someone could post a script for a simple link to the same page, that i could paste into the 'actions' panel, that'd be great...

          are you trying to navigate within the swf timeline? or to another html 'page'?

          use the getURL() method to navigate to another html page as in:

          my_btn.onPress = function() {
          getURL( ' http://www.thedomain.com/page.html' );
          }

          or the gotoAdnStop() method to navigate the timeline:

          my_btn.onPress = function() {
          gotoAndStop( [frame or label] );
          }

            it'll link to other html pages, so thanks for the scripts. i'll give them a go, and see what happens...
            thanks, again...

              sorry to be back...

              i get a "1120: Access of undefined property my_btn." error for the first line of code,
              and a "1180: Call to a possibly undefined method getURL." error for the second...

              do i replace the 'my_btn' with the button name, or does this apply to the layer?
              am very much a beginner...

                yes these code should be on the timeline also. and yes it should be the 'instance name' of the button you are using - to assign an 'instance name' select the button on the Stage and look in the properties panel - you will see a box on the right that say... <instance name> type the name in there and use it in your code.
