    Make Button Open Link In Browser (Flash)

    Hello,

    I know is is probably a really dumb question, but I can't find the answer anywhere. I am using the demo now, but I will export to flash when the project is finished. I have a button in my project that I want to open a link in a new browser window/tab. How can I do this? Thanks.

    A question if I may. Will the mentioned link go to another website in the new browser window?

    Thanks,

    The Flash Object has an action, Open URL, and this will open in a new browser window.

    Okay, thanks. And what is the difference between the different options:

    * Current Window
    * Parent Window
    * Top-Level Window
    * Target Window
    * New Window

    Thanks.

    Current will open in the same window/tab your game is in, so you'll leave the game. It is also the only one that won't be caught by popup/ad blockers.

    Okay, thanks. But I really don't want it to open in the same window. What do the other options do? And what is the chance of that they will trigger a popup blocker? Will this occur in any major browser, or just Internet Explorer?

    Thanks.

    New Window should open it up in a new window. Don't know about a popup blocker, you'll have to test it.
