Yes, but you do this within the flash file.

I did this before (before I learnt that flash was 99% evil ;) ) and basically the flash file has to call a js file (that creates the pop-up) in the html document. Pretty easy, but can be pretty hard if you have little experience with flash files and JS.

I'm sure someone can give you exact info, I only remember the basic steps outlined above.

Anyone?

done it, pretty simple actually
you make a normal hyperlink and add the behaviour then copy the coding and insert it as javascript in the flash text properties box.then delete the hyperlink through the coding

One of the things I am doing when it comes to flash these days, is asking myself WHY. If it can enhance the user experience in some way or if I can do something in flash more efficient than I can through other methods, then I will use it. Otherwise if I am using flash just because I can or because it looks cool then I refrain from doing so. I am thinking maybe this is what domeia was referring to by
