    I just want a freakin link

    Why is it so hard to figure out how to do something nowadays? Everything is so complicated and terms are assumed commonplace yet alot of newbies dont understand them and it is extremely annoying, even the way they are explained is not clear enough to verify thier purpose and usually if it is theres no extra terms given to allow the usage of it..

    Anyways..

    I have text I converted to a symbol, I want it to go to a link when its clicked. Also I'd like to know how to make it open the link in a new window.

    I'm using Flash MX 2004, thanks for any replies.
    Sig's are for newbies.

    When converting text to a symbol you should choose "button". Then select the button and open the actionscript window (F9) and paste this into it....

    on(release){
    getURL("http://www.mysite.com","_blank");
    }
