View Full Version : hyperlink around swf

06-28-2006, 01:08 PM
I'm trying to put a link around a swf. I've been trying this:

<a href="http://www...">
<embed src="location of swf">

but to no avail. Is there a way to put a link around the swf without changing the file itself? I don't have the ability to crack open the swf.

You can make an swf that is the same width and height and load that swf to yours, layer higher make an _alpha=0 mc and assign
to it.

I'm sorry, I'm very new to this. I don't quite understand. Maybe I should explain more. The user comes to the home page. On the home page is this swf. They need to click on that swf to go to another page. Forgive my nube-ness! Thanks!

my_btn._x =0;
my_btn._y = 0;
my_btn._alpha = 0;
my_btn._width = Stage.width;
my_btn._height = Stage.height;
my_btn.onPress = function(){
getURL("http://www.online.com", "_self");
The basics thing is to change the url and swf name.
You have to set proper fps, width&height and background properties to make it work right
