    Hey all,

    I have a .swf file that is going on my site. It is a simple flash menu bar.

    There are nine items on the menu that I need to have hyperlinked to their respective pages on my site, but I'll be damned if I can't figure out how to hyperlink the individual menu items.

    I have used Flash MX, but that is greek to me, although I was able to edit the wording in the menu items, I just can not seem to place a hyperlink.

    The items are hyperlinked right now but are hyperlinked to generic sites (example - index-1, index-2, index-3 etc.)

    I DESPERATELY need some help. If anyone is available that would be great.

    You will be saving me from some serious anger management issues and you will also be saving my laptop from being sent through the dining room window!

    Thanks!

    you probably need to just add an action (actionscript) to the menu item

    something like this:

    Code:
    on (release) {
    	getURL("http://www.mydomain.com", "_self");
    }
    
    although i would NOT recommend using flash for a menu j- ust make sure you embed the flash menu with something like swfobject that way you can hard code your links too, the swfobject readme docs will explain more

    let me know if you need more info

    Hey thanks. I REALLY appreciate your input. However, it is all greek to me.

    I have NEVER played with this before, and basically need the directions drawn out in a pretty red crayon.

    Thanks for your help though!

    Just wondering, I'm not great with AS and never tested this.

    If you use GetURL "" _self and use this in ebay auctions will the user get redirected to your own site or is there security measures that prevent this from happening?
