GetURL is used to open an html page from Flash

Restrictions: You cannot open an html file on the local hard drive

Eg. The following works

popUp_btn.onRelease = function(){

whereas the following code doesnt

popUp_btn.onRelease = function(){

If you want to set the properties of the popup window

 popUp_btn.onRelease = function(){

and add the following code into the html file created that includes the call to the swf file

function fnPopup(strPage){
   var fnPopup =,"WinPopup","toolbar=no,menubar=no,\


1. Every time you "publish" you delete the JavaScript in html file !! 2. Check the errors in Flash (the windowopen command)
