Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,

    Link to URL stopping snow effect

    I urgently need help.

    I am using the downloaded snow effect from the following link.

    http://www.kirupa.com/developer/flas...s3_cs4_pg1.htm

    I want to add a link to the movie:

    I use this:

    Code:
    var link:URLRequest = new URLRequest (“www.myurl.com”);
    
    button_mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, gooo);
    
    function gooo(event:MouseEvent):void {
    
    navigateToURL(link);
    
    }
    But it stops the snow - and I'm not sure that the links work either.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance.

    keep in mind that you are adding code to button_mc and at least from a visual inspection I can't see the button so I presume you added it.

    What your doing should not stop the snow.

    Just for my personal curiosity can you try this instead:

    PHP Code:
    var link:URLRequest = new URLRequest ('www.google.com');

    button_mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICKgooo);

    function 
    gooo(event:MouseEvent):void {

    navigateToURL(link"_blank");


    the basic information on navigateToURL can be found here:

    Thanks soooo much! That works perfectly.

    I can see what you have changed - but please can you tell me why it would make such a difference?

    Cheers

    I think the key phrase from the live docs (link previously provided) is:
    "In the stand-alone player, you can either specify a new ("_blank") window or a named window. The other values don't apply."

    So my interpretation is that the default value (null) does not work in the stand-alone player (that's the one your testing your code in).

    Another way of putting this is that to run it in your compiler/stand-alone player you must have "_blank" as your second parameter/argument.
