Does anyone know how I can create a hyperlink for horizontally scrolling text in Flash 8?

Thanks in advance

turn the text into a button and add a geturl function to it

I did that but it seems to want to load the url immediately. I want it to load when the scrolling text is clicked on?

you need to add a mouse event around the geturl function


On (Release)
Get URL ("http://page.com", window="_blank")
End On
