Chapter 11. Adding Text > Setting Text for Hyperlinks

Setting Text for Hyperlinks

You can style any portion of a text cast member as a hypertext link, or hyperlink for short. Director applies the Web's standard link formatting to the text, so that it appears blue at first and turns purple after a viewer clicks the link.

For anything to happen when a user clicks the hypertext during a movie, you must write an on hyperlinkClicked event handler in Lingo (see Chapter 17, "Scripting Lingo" ). With the handler script, you can make the hypertext link to a Web-site address (URL) or perform some other action.
