who suggested that mix of as2 and as3 that is hopelessly wrong???
if you're using as3, try:
navigateToURL(new URLRequest("mydoc.pdf"), "_self");
That's great it actually worked! Thankyou
I also having challenges with buttonMode. With one movie clip the buttonMode worked allowing me to hover my mouse over the button and it turned in to a hand but it didn't work for my othe movie clip and doesn't turn in to a hand. I'm also having probs with navigating to a url that is a html file on my local disk drive on my computer it just stays frozen and doesn't move when I click on the button to move to my home screen. I think it has to do with my security but I'm not sure. I'm using firefox.

1. copy and paste the buttonMode code that's problematic.
2. use http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager04a.ht ml to adjust your security settings.

you have solved my problem again. I just read the documentation on the link you gave me and it was simple to fix after that. In the global settings I just put in the exact path of the the folder to where my files are kept and now I can call my files perfectly. In regards to the other problem of the buttonMode not working properly - it wasn't working properly because I had the text set to selectable and I changed it to read only and its fixed.
