Professional :: How To Add A Link To A .swf File

Is there a way to add a link/URL to a .swf file, without embedding into the original .fla file?Is there any way to do that with just the .swf file alone, and without actually editing the .fla or re-creating it?

Professional :: Add Link To Flash File (using AS 3)?
I have created a Flash banner ad for our company that is to be hosted on another website. This banner ad needs to have a link added to it, within the Flash file. This link will take users straight to our website but is also for the purpose of tracking.How do I go about adding the URL? I have searched through these forums but cannot get it to work.I am using Flash CS4 (selected to use AS 3 when I first created the file.)

From what I have read and understood, I should create a new layer, and then add the code to the first frame on that layer?Exactly what code should I use? I tried something as simple as 'getURL("","_self"); ' but that is not working. Is it bcos that is for AS 2 only? My last question is...can I set up the link so that it works for ALL frames?

Professional :: Find Link To External File?
I have purchased an image gallery program that works fine but I am struggling to make a very minor modification. I have asked the author for assistance but previous requests have met with no response so I am also asking my question here. This program has most of its logic in an external AS2 file. I have made some small changes to this file and want to save it under a new name. However, that would also require me to change the reference to the external AS2 file from within the fla file. That's where my problem lies. I can't find any code in the fla that contains such a reference.

If I try to publish an swf without this file in the required location it causes a compiler error thus proving that there must be a reference somewhere to that file. However, doing a search for this AS2 file in the 'current document' when viewing the fla file in Flash CS4 produces no results. Where else could this reference be hidden?

Professional :: GetURL To Link To A Local Htm File?
Trying to set up a getURL to link to a local htm file, NOT a page on the internet. All the tutorials I have read tell me how to link to a file on the internet I'm trying to set up an intranet site for my training college where students can access training resources etc on the local network. Therefore my getURL needs to point to a local file, not one on the internet. I'm trying to link to a .htm file that resides on my computer. Does the htm file have to be in the same folder as the .fla file?? How do I do this?? I'm working on a Mac, Os X, MX 2004, if that makes any difference.

Professional :: Altering The Link In A Flash File So It Doesn't Open In A New Tab
I have a flash file on the homepage of my client's website. When you click "Enter", the new page opens in a new tab. I want it all to stay in the same tab. If you would like to view the entire code yourself to identify how I could solve this issue, the site is:[URL]- but if not then I will paste the code of the flash object below:

<object id="FlashID" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="720" height="540">
<param name="movie" value="Scripts/FrontPage2.swf" />

Professional :: "cannot Be Applied To Stroke" And "cannot Link Bitmap" And "cannot Link Group Objects"
So I'll be honest, I am very new to Flash. I have CS5.5 and I am trying to animate some images that I made in Photoshop in Flash. I would like to use tools such as the Bone tool on them but I have gotten almost every error feedback such as "cannot be applied to stroke" and "cannot link bitmap" and "cannot link group objects". I have been messing around with it quite a bit. My file is .swf and I do ungroup it but now when I use the bone tool on it, the entire image turns white.

Previously I have had problems where the picture would not disappear but my drawing would move back a bit and I could only see it through the movable window given by the bone tool in the shape of my picture. Another problem was when I used the Bone tool, the image would split into four flipped sections and not stay together. I assume this had to do with when I tried to "break apart" my image, but something similar happened on an unbroken non-bitmap image.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Getting Link From XML File?
Ok, this should be easy, I've done it before, but the code was in a different setup/format.

All I'm trying to do is have a text box display a link and then click on the link to go to the site.

Now, everything is working as far as display, but when I try to pass the targeted (clicked) link to navigateToURL, it is null.

Here is the partial loader code:

//format video description txt
var vidDescFont:Font = new VidDescFont();
var vdf:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
vdf.font = vidDescFont.fontName;

I need to have a link at the end of a video so the viewer can click on it and go to a survey page.

We need the viewer to watch the entire video so it has to be at the end. I'm not an AS expert but I have the Master collection so whever software it takes I should have.Video was done in Premiere exported through media encoder and I have used either Flash to make a custom player or Dreamweaver to embed in a web page. The video plays fine but no link.
