clickTAG
on Mar 25, 2008 at 1:06:26 pm


Greetings.
I create flash advertisements for an online newspaper. The company is wanting me to do a tracking actionscript to the flash files. I have the script that I need, but I don't really understand how to use it correctly, I keep coming up with errors.

Here's what I have:

on (release) {
if (clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:") {
getURL(clickTAG);

I think my problem is that I'm not sure where I insert information, and what information needs to stay for functionality. I've never dealt with a clickTAG, and I'm not finding anything that explains it clearly to me on the internet. Do I leave "clickTAG" in the script, or do I replace each clickTAG instance with a URL?

If someone can leave me an actual sample (filling in data where needed), that would be extremely helpful!

Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions.

- T.S.

Hi!

Just enter that code on any button..

where you would normally have something like

on (release){
getURL("http://whateverlink.com");
}

but yours would be


on (release) {
if (clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:") {
getURL(clickTAG);
}

}

YES you keep the clickTAG in the script.

It will give you errors on your end when testing it out, but will function correctly on the advertisers end. Hope this helps

What do you do with the html code?

How do you link up the clickTAG in your embed and object tags?

Thanks,

Its been my experience that whichever ad system (DART, OpenX, etc..) you are using to serve the swf will automatically place the clickTAG variable in their embed code.

Otherwise, it can be passed via flashVars in the embed.
