    Flash CS3 ,AS3, Button Hyperlink Problem..Please Help

    Hi guys,
    well just to let u guys now, i'm very new to flash,
    i'm trying to create a basic website with help from some notes on the web...
    The Problem i'm having is with creating buttons...
    i created a rectangle....converted it to button...then changed the color when it goes to over and down situation...but when i add text to the button and then hyperlinked that text ....the link work but when i rollover mouse on my text the color does not change and when i rollover my mouse on button the color changes but the link don't work........

    so i searched online ...the only thing i found was the following code from here's the link to code below:
    here's the code:
    myButton.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, myButtonFunction);
    function myButtonFunction(event: MouseEvent) {
    var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest("");
    There are 2 main problems with the above code:
    1. in this code i don't know where to add " _self " so it will open in same window...
    2. this code only work when testing movie ...when published buttons stop working....

    using flash cs3, windows vista and IE7

    Well, I'm not an expert either, but I just normally put the text inside my button, on the up and over state, then I hyperlink the button itself by clicking on the button on the stage, then adding your link via actionscript.

    When you add it to your site via html (or however) I think you could add the alt name in and it should still be indexed on the search engines.

    I've found that if you try to link it html, it adds a "hotspot" (for lack of better word) for the mouseover and it seems to cover up your flash mouseover affect.

    Hope this makes sense.

    Someone correct me if this is wrong.
