  • Flash Click Tag?

    Does this seem right for a click tag?

    Code:
    on (release) {
      if (_root.clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http://websitegoesheredotcom") {
        getURL(_root.clickTAG, "_blank");
      }
    }

      Oh yeh - thanks that might work

      I don't usually work in Flash, I've only had a 1 day course about 3 years ago.

        What I have in the first post was there from whomever set it up.

        This is what the web company place said:

        Code:
        on (release) {
        
        getURL(clickTAG,'_blank');
        
        }
        ...and also supply the clickthrough URL.



        what's the story with the "(clickTAG,'_blank');

          ClickTAG is where you are going. Either "default.aspx" or :http://www.google.com/" would work.

          "_blank", just like in HTML, opens the link in a new window. "_self" would open the link in the same window that you are viewing the page in.

            The clickTAG is usually from the webpage where you're advertising. They use them so they can track numbers of clicks, etc. The URL is supplied on the server backend and not typically embedded into the Flash file like normal getURLs.

            Program it like they ask, and then give them the URL you want to go to separately. They'll plug it in their website and it will work fine.

              So exactly as it is in the second post?

              Then supply them with the URL

                  Yeah, exactly like you had posted in post #4. Supply them the URL and they'll put it in. This way they can change the URL if needed without having to have the native .fla files or a flash developer.

                    Excellent, not really sure how all this works. But, I'll leave that to them.
