Introduction
Flash Animation 21: Flash for Web Design: getURL Command
In the last lesson, we touched on simple text links; they're quick and easy, but also a little difficult to use and not all that functional. So now we're going to make a graphic menu of links, using ActionScripting.

You can make simple graphics in Flash, if you choose; I've chosen to make mine in Photoshop, just some quick gradient-highlight buttons saved as transparent GIFs, nothing particularly professional or fancy. (In fact, they're rather clunky, but they serve the purpose.)
