Hi,this is driving me crazy. I'm trying to find the links to a url in two fla files that someone else created. They were created in 2004 and I'm using 8 but that shouldn't be a problem, I think the same thing occured in 2004 (I couldn't find them). I have looked at everything but am obviously missing something. These files are on my site and when clicked they lead to nowhere now so I really need to change them. The files only have one button each in them but there is some text which is how I presume he put a link in. Are there other ways of adding URL's? Thanks.

is there an actions layer? if so they may be in there. Look for something like

button.onPress=function(){
getURL("whatever");
}

It could also be coded into the buttons themselves

Hi, no, no action script layer, I wish there was, I think he did things a little funny. There is only one button and when I go into that he has up, down, over, hit but only up has a keyframe. I see no url. I'm no flash expert but I have taken classes including one that was all Action Script so I'm not completely lost either. Just can't figure it out. Could script have been lost if he did them in Flash MX and they were then opened in MX 2004 and now 8? Thanks

Just reread your original post, you can simply add links to text by selecting it and adding a link through the properties panel, go through the text, chances are this is what has been done.

Moving between version should not make code dissapear either

no, the links will still be there.

may be obvious for you, but did you look for the action on the button itself, (not inside the symbol which shows the states)? Select the symbol and hit F9 - make sure you are in 'expert mode] for actionscript editing, since some expert code will not be visible in simple mode.

I do not know too much about this so forgive me if im talking out of my A$$. I was recently working with a few flash files that someone else had put together and all the links were stored in a seperate xml file.
I appreciate this is probably too simple an answer but thought I would mention anyway.
