Swf to link to a new page


I was given a swf file (banner ad) and when users click on it a new page should open with the page of the company advertised.

Problem is that this link is not in the swf. i.e. You click on the swf and nothing happens.

Is there any way to have the swf to link to another page without changing the swf itself? Or I will need to get the fla and recompile it with the link inside the swf?

Sounds like your easiest way might be to alter the FLA and recreate the SWF then.

I tried. It doesn’t work cross browser (and <a> around <object> is probably not valid HTML either)

Have you tried putting an HTML link around the <object>?

Or making the whole <div> that holds the SWF into a link?
