Open URL with Button in AC3 July 26, 2010

Posted by Tournas Dimitrios in Actionscript.

Actually this tutorial is for the beginner and demonstrates how to open a new URL  if a button is pressed .  First with your favorite Flash IDE create a button on the stage with a instance name of your choice ( vs. myButton_btn) and on the Actionscript layer write the following code 

//Button event Listener
myButton_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK , openUrl);

// This function handles the opening of the URL
function openUrl(evt:MouseEvent):void {
var url:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://www.someUrl.com");
navigateToURL(url, "_blank");
