* Awesome tutorials *
They’re easy to follow. Keep them coming!

P.S.: You can also make the text a link so that it does not involve any ActionScript.
It would not give the impression that the user clicks on a button, though.
You can find this option by selecting the text and check properties>option. There you have “Link” and “Target” fields.

@sackman138 Make another button with a different instance name. Copy and paste the code a second time. Change the instance name and the url location in the code for the second button.

so if I don’t want to open it in a new window, I should type “self” instead of “blank” ?

Hi, please help! I´m going crazy I’ve tried all to debug this code… it keeps on giving me a sintax error:
1084: Syntax error: expecting rightparen before dot.
function aClick(event.MouseEvent):void{
before what dot?
I tried removing the dot between event.MouseEvent, and then it just tells me no syntax errors, but it doesn’t go to my html file, should I use a different command than the URLRequest to get an HTML file with flash?
Please help 🙂
