I am a n00b and was wondering if there was way to trigger the popularly useful thickbox (javascript to display a lightbox-style HTML page) from a link embedded in a Flash movie? I have a website that is all Flash and want to display thickbox formatted HTML content from a text hyperlink in the movie using actionscript.

Here's an example of how the hyperlink is formatted in HTML:

<a href="ajaxLogin.htm?height=100&width=250" class="thickbox" title="Please Sign In">login</a

Is there an action script equivalent to the above?

If possible, can anyone point me in the right direction or give an example of the code:

The thickbox script can be found at:

it's much to explain for this, but you will probably need a dynamic text with html enabled, and then just create a simple scroller in onEnterFrame.
Just google search for: flash thicker.
