HighLightingText setting link to URL
on May 27, 2006 at 10:42:59 am

Is it possible to set text in a flash movie as a link to an URL, I'm thinking I may need to make a button and set it to link an URL.

If so Can the button be invisible so just the text is the button...

I know I may be getting ahead of myself or I may be total off base..hopefully my goal is seen clearly.

Yes. Create a new button. Put a little square on the first frame and drag that all the way over to the last "Hit" frame. So you don't have anything on the Over, Down or Up frames.

Now you have an invisible button.

Drag an instance from your library of that button and size it accordingly on the stage over whatever text you'd like to become a link.

Name the instance down in the Property Inspector. Let's say you call it myButton.

Then, on a layer on the main Timeline use this:

myButton.onRelease()= function() {
getURL("http://www.whatever.com", blank);
}

The 'myButton' is the instance name you gave your invisible button that you dragged onto the stage.

Hope that helps.
