How to Go to a Web Page at the End of a Flash Intro

Save
Shares & Saves

The Flash video scripting program allows developers to build visuals into websites. Those visuals can redirect a site visitor to a different part of the site after a Flash animation concludes. Create the URL transfer using either ActionScript 2 or ActionScript 3.

  • Click the Adobe Flash file icon to open the existing Flash document.

  • Click into the last frame of the sequence.

  • Use the F9 hot key to open "Actions."

  • Go to the bottom of the existing script.

  • Use a "getUrl" command if you're using ActionScript 2. Type getUrl followed by parentheses, quotation marks and the full Url as follows:
    getUrl ("http://www.testurl.com").

    Use a "navigateToURL" command with ActionScript 3:
    navigateToURL("http://www.testurl.com").

Tips & Warnings

  • Flash is not viable on all platforms -- Apple operating systems do not support Flash and instead rely on open components like HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Consequently, there has been a move away from Flash on modern browsers, and there is no Flash capability on many modern smart phone platforms.
