Subject: Re: FLASH: Get the damn URL action question!!!!

You have to make the action on the button on the main stage, not on the down
frame of the button.

So, when you drop the button on the main stage, double click it that should
pop up a dialog box...go to the actions and put the get url action in there.
Also, if you are just going to "test movie" I don't think the get url will
work. You have to actually export the swf.

hope this helps.
