Flash Link, How to make a text link in flash

 11:54 am on Sep 3, 2003 (gmt 0)

Right now I have a flash navigation on my left site and if the it lights up you can click the link, I just cant make a link in the text, like in normal HTML.

Anyone here knows that, a Normal text link in flash and not in the action.

What do you mean? You should just be able touse the GetURL action for the links

If we say we have a text like "superman" written in flash, then I would say I just add url to that but it dossent work, the link is not active.

right now I have the links in the action behind the text, but the action must first be active before they can push the link and that is not always that easy, so I want a normal text link in flash.

How will you do a simple text link in flash?

Not quite sure what youve been trying, but this is how i would do it:

Type your text, turn it into a symbol.
Select your symbol, open up the actions pannel.
Goto Actions>Browser>GetUrl
Type in the Url it goes to.

I found the problem everytime I tried to make a text link I had some action behind the text, so somehow they mixed up, so link would not be made, but now it works.

thanks again
