    How to load links from a text file

    iagia31phm

      Dynamic links in a text file

       

      Hi, basically I want to load a website address from a txt file as a variable into flash and then when a user clicks  on a button in flash the website loads automatically

       

      I now how to already get variables in from the txt file but the problem is the getURL method

       

      Here is my txt file contents:

       

      &&link1="http://www.google.co.uk/"&&

       

      Ps im using google just as a test for now

       

      In flash here is the script to load the variables in:

       

      stop();

      //Create new LoadVars

      linkData = new LoadVars();

      // Load text into dynamic text boxes

      linkData.onLoad = function()

      {

                  link_txt.text = this.link1;

       

       

      };

      // Instruction to collect data from text file

      linkData.load("linktest.txt");

       

      And here is the simple button script:

       

      on (press) {

                  getURL(link1, "_blank");

      }

       

      Any help would be nice thank you
