Flash:

  • Flash versions 8-10 accepted
  • Required back-up static image based on above specifications
  • A clickable flash object such as a button or “hitarea” in the flash movie clip will require some ActionScript attached to it. Associate the on(release) event with that object. The object will now listen for that particular event. When the event occurs it will trigger ActionScript instructions.

Use the following ActionScript attached to the transparent click layer on top of the flash file:

  • on(release){getURL(_root.clickTAG, "_blank");}

HTML:

  • HTML ads are defined as any code that isn’t being served from a client’s ad server.
  • Please allow an extra business day lead-time for us to be able to set up and test all non-Third-Party code.
