    Multiple links in a single text box?


      First of all, excuse me for my english...


      I just want to know how I can create multiple links in a single text box. It's something really easy to do in Flash but I haven't found the way to do it in FC.


      Here it goes an example done in Flash:



      Thank you in advance!

          Depending on what other text you might have, you could use the data list component.

          To get the text to have underlines, you will need to edit the repeated item. You can also adjust colors and fonts as well. The default rollover and selected states will probably not be the UI that want, so make sure you change those as well.


          Now for the interactivity, select the datalist, and use the interactions panel, choose "On Select", then "Go To Url", the trick is to make sure the "When a specific item is selected" is also set. Here are the basic settings to get your links working:


          Add new interactions for each item you want to be functional.

            Yes, that is what I had in mind, although if you have a lot of text, you have to be adding new interactions all the time... but I guess that's the way it is.


            Thank you!
