#1166 Can a DefineText character string be converted into a link (URL)?

I'm trying to convert the DefineText (234) character string in line 45 (novalight.org) into a link (http://novalight.org). How can this be done with JPEXS? Thanks!

I watched some youtube videos about adding links to a flash, and they adds a button + actionscript So I think it is not (easily) possible.

OK - Thanks!

If anyone reading this wants to tackle this mod and change the NOVALIGHT.ORG text to a button and link in the frame under the "Sons Of Light" text, please send me an email with your fee. I hope it's OK to make this request here - if not, just delete this comment.

I am sorry, this is not a forum. Please use another service on the internet. We use the tracker to help us fix bugs in the decompiler and develop new features. We do not assist anyone to develop his application. This is not FFDec related, sorry. In fact, we are not flash developers at all :-). We know SWF file structure and how the assembler/decompilation works but I never created any SWF project/game which runs on the web. It is a bit weird, sad, but true. There are a lot of places on the internet where you get better help. There can be other users in our tracker who may want to help, but the tracker is really not the place to discuss it.

DefineText (234) contains not only the novalight.org text, is it ok if the whole text (Sons Of Light novalight.org) will be a button?
developer
DefineText (234) is already on a button (on DefineButton2 (235)), and it already has the following action: on(press){ getUrl("http://www.novalight.org", "_blank"); } So what is the problem? BTW: How do you want to click on the text? As I see it is only visible if the mouse is over a green rectangle on the "personal" page. If you move the mouse the text will disappear.
user
Thanks for pursuing this issue, Honfika! :) Yes, it's OK if the whole text is a button. If this is already a button with a link to novalight.org, I don't know how to activate it- but it was designed to be a link to novalight.org (which never worked)
developer
But I can't click on it because it disappears when i want to move to cursor on it.... how can you click on it?
user
It appears that something is missing to link button (235) to the text (234). As you've noticed, the green triangle brings up the text but you can't click on the text to activate the link! :(
user
When you click on the button (235) in JPEXS, the link works!
developer
So is it ok? may I close this issue?
user
It's not really OK because the link can't be activated from the text (button) on the Personal Profile page. I think the green triangle which brings up the novalight button (and text) is button (206). I suppose the change necessary is to leave the novalight button on the page if the cursor is moved away from the green triangle - but I don't know how to do that. It's OK to close this issue here because when I find someone to make this change, you'll probably get another JPEXS user!

No, I never heard it before.
