- I have created text (with a button-behavior) that looks like this:

"email@emailprovider.com"

- It is a button (dynamic text), and the target is "mailto:email@emailprovider.com".

- I want outlook to open when clicking it.

- When I drag this symbol/button to the scene/stage, and test it, it is invisible(!). I don't know why... It's there and I can click it, but it's invisible.

- The color of the text is white on a dark blue background.



Please help!

Thanks!

Well, I went to the library and created a new symbol (button symbol).

I typed the text and gave it the "mailto" command in the target field.

Then went back to the stage and dragged the button to the stage and placed it where I wanted it to be.

Then tested it and I cannot see it. I can see it on the stage, it's just when I test it it's invisible.

I wasn't 100% sure at first, but I think you're talking about Flash.

you would put "mailto:email@emailprovider.com" in the URL field. You don't need anything in the target field. As for visibility, can you post your FLA?

Could you provide a link to the page that you need help with? (So that we can see exactly what's going on)

I can send you guys a file that works just like that one part I'm having problems with. It's only 12kb in size. (seems like I cannot attach it here...). I don't have URL to it.
-------------------------------------------------

Here's the Flash MX file.

It's a 3 layer file. Each layer has 5 frames.

Click "contact" and the EMAIL button ("email@emailprovider.com") is supposed to appear right below the CONTACT button.

Problem: It's there, but it won't show. (I also get a flash of something sometimes when rolling over it with the cursor).


Help!

Thanks guys!!!

I can send the 21kb file if you post your email addresses.
