Any Flash users?
« on: August 22, 2005, 01:16 PM »
Hopefully one of you guys can help me here. I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to Flash. I can animate pretty well, but when it comes to the coding, I'm useless.

I'm using Flash MX, and I have a short looping movie with about 5 scenes that sits in the middle of an html page. What I'm trying to do is make a different link for each scene, to go to a seperate article of a website I'm working on.

For instance, the first part of the movie is a scene for a Salvador Dali piece. I'm trying to figure out how to make the movie clickable during that scene, to take the user to the Dali piece. The next scene would be a piece about a local photographer, and I would want the movie to then be linkable to the photographer's gallery.

Is this something that's completely simple and I just have no idea how to do it, ir is this not possible?

Thanks!

 create a layer at the bottom of all layers, draw a rectangle the size of your movie - i.e. completely filling the stage. press f8 to convert to symbol (a 'graphic' type should do i think).
now click on the rectangle and add this actionscript:

on (release) {
getURL("http://www.example.com");

}

that should work... let me know if it does or not.
