keep getting clicktag is required on uploading a flash banner but the code is within the swf file...

 

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

 

this is for actionscript 2, any ideas?

 

Kind Regards

I'ts tough to tell without actually see the source files of the flash banner. There could be a number of things wrongs to be honest.

 

Question: Why are you not using ActionScript 3?

I am using this code with AS3:

import flash.events.MouseEvent;
import flash.net.URLRequest;
// ......
MyMouseClick.addEventListener(
MouseEvent.CLICK,
function(event: MouseEvent) : void {
flash.net.navigateToURL(new URLRequest( root.loaderInfo.parameters.clickTAG), "_blank");
}
);

I am getting this error on upload:
"ClickTag is required, but not found."

Nothing else. In Flash, we created the action for the clicktag. Any help would be appreciated. At runtime, we get this output when the ad is clicked:

"TypeError: Error #2007: Parameter url must be non-null.
at global/flash.net::navigateToURL()
at Function/<anonymous>()"

Any help would be appreciated. I sent this to Google and no response yet.
