I have a .swf file that I am trying to link to another page within the same tab/window. The target was originally "_blank", which made it open in a new tab/window. I didn't want that. So I changed the target to "_self", and now when I click the .swf, the link won't open at all.

This is my link code embedded within the swf file:

/* Click to Go to Web Page
Clicking on the specified symbol instance loads the URL in a new browser window.

1. Replace http://www.adobe.com with the desired URL address.
Keep the quotation marks ("").

button_1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, fl_ClickToGoToWebPage);

function fl_ClickToGoToWebPage(event:MouseEvent):void
navigateToURL(new URLRequest("http://www.example.com/rooms-and-specials/specials-and-packages/"), "_self");
