    resolved [RESOLVED] Open url in new Explorer window

    Using CS3
    AS 2.0


    I have a button that when pressed it opens a url in a new window.
    Works on Safari great, but not in Explorer.

    Code...

    on (release) {
    getURL("http://www.name of website", "_blank");
    }


    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    Well your code is correct and I've used that code many times to open a new browser window, there may be some other configuration issue.

    OK... I loaded the file up to the server and it works. Files do not work on local PC. Glad I got a Mac to test on.

    Strange, that command should work both locally and on the server. I've tested it tonight and it worked like a charm. Are you getting an error, or is it failing to open a new browser window/browser tab?
