ok i've got a button that has and instance name of close_btn and when i add the code to it it works until i try to specify a target

close_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, callLink);

function callLink:void {

  var url:String = "http://site";

  var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(url);

  try {

	navigateToURL(request, '_self');

  } catch (e:Error) {

	trace("Error occurred!");



i'm no actionscript ninja but i can fight my way in and out but this seems like i'm way overthinking it like i tend to do

Thank You in advance for any help


alright i fixed it, yes i was overcomplicating it.

close_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, callLink);
function callLink(event:MouseEvent):void {
	var url:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://www.adobe.com"); navigateToURL(url, "_self"); 
	trace("You Clicked the Close button");
