Set up that dynamic textfield as html text, then just wrap the URL text in an a href tag.
i have already done that have i not with these statement's
theLink.html = true;
theLink.htmlText = t.Link;
also when i do the link in the following way it breaks the xml
Link="<a href="acmeart.co.uk">Link in here</a>"
i think the quotes are the problem as the part of the information you wish to pass through to flash has to be encased inside the quotation marks and with the h ref link the web address also needs to be inside the quotation marks so it does not know which section to pass through
What I had in mind was to place the link inline in your text. Something like this:
<item name="valley" full="assets/valley.png"
title='Book - CD ROM'
body='This product was a Shockwave holiday card. It began as a jigsaw puzzle. As the puzzle was solved, it opened and displayed the holiday greeting. <a href="http://www.amazon.com" >Purchase a copy.<a\>'>
The url is right in the text. The html markup is escaped as html entities.
thanks for the reply that is working now thanks for all your help on this.
