It all depends whether you're decisively using AS2.0 or AS3.0 .
In the latter, you would need to use a URLRequest() method in conjunction with a navigateToUrl() call (not sure the exact syntax for navigate to Url, it might be a capitalized "URL" in the method but the request takes a String argument such as http://www.adobe.com)
That makes sense. I would prefer to use AS3. Any suggestions where I might find some guidelines to formatting the correct syntax?
go to your Help section and look for the Action Script 3 Reference Guide. It is the repository for all of the ActionScript code possibilities with Flash and Flex. You can look in the index alphabetically for URLRequest and for navigateToUrl. There might even be code examples listed. I haven't looked just yet but you will probably have the chance before I do to do so.
I will definitely take a look at the reference guide. Thank you very much for your help!
