Hey, 1st post here. Hopefully you all can help a noob out.

I want to make a bank of buttons in Flash and import them into Dreamweaver for use as my navigation for a site I am building. My question is, how do I link these buttons to navigate to where I need them to? Do I set up something like an image map across the bank of buttons or do I have to put the navigation in actionscript while still creating in Flash. Thanks for your help.

you have to write this in the flash before you compile the fla

assign to button..


on(release){

getURL("http://www.domain.com/page.htm", "_blank");

}

That is unless I am just navigating to another page within my webpage I would have to use _this instead of _blank?

use the _self method to call a page into the parent window

If you don't use frames, just leave the field empty:
on(release){

getURL('http://www.domain.com/page.htm', '');

}
