    "Easy" Question: Button's on (release) { Action } Not Executing - Why?

    cgarvie

      Thanks in advance for your help.

       

      I'm new to Flash and am creating a SWF in which the user is sent to a specific URL which depends on which button they press. My FLA has many layers and, on the top-most (forground) layer there is a Button with the following actionscript:

       

      [QUOTE]on (release)

      {

      getURL("http://google.com", "_blank");

      }[/QUOTE]

       

      Clicking the button does nothing. When I change the on-click action to stop (or whatever the stop the movie function is) it also does nothing (and continues to play), so the on (release) brackets are not being executed.

       

      Any ideas as to what might possibly cause this? I googled to no avail.
