Hyperlinks to the pictures in the player
on Dec 16, 2010 at 8:20:26 pm

All of the information that I have found about adding hyperlinks in Flash seem to refer to "Buttons". I don't want buttons on the player. It just continuously plays. Right now I am just working with my tester player. It holds 5 pictures and plays perfectly. What I want visitors to be able to do is click on a picture, and then be redirected to another page on the site.

In my frustration I decided to treat the picture as a "button". I'm using AS3, so I had to create a new layer and name an instance and all of that. Which is what I did....

This is exactly what I did:

Layer1 now named "Picture" then converted each picture to symbol named "picture", and instance named picture_btn

Created a new Layer2 and named it "Actions". In the first frameset I hit F9 key to open up the box where I could type in the code:


Exported the movie. Then uploaded it to my site. The player was there, but the pictures don't redirect anywhere. Is my code wrong? What am I doing wrong?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

The most obvious is that you are using AS2 in an AS3 project.
