Open the Actions panel (If the Actions panel is not open choose Windows > Actions or you
can press (F9).





1.
Copy and paste the following code into the ActionScript field.
Please Note: You may need
to manually retype the " quotes as copy and paste copies a different type of character that flash
doesn't recognise which will cause issues. 


Link_1.addEventListener( MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP, function(event: MouseEvent): void { var
sURL1: String; if ((sURL1 = root.loaderInfo.parameters.clickTag)) { void
ExternalInterface.call('open', sURL1, '_blank'); } } );

Once you have added the click tag we need to reference the button we made earlier to
call that actionscript code.

Click on the 300x250 button we created.

You should see in the properties panel a blank text area, this is where we add the
reference (Called Instance Name).

1.
Save your flash file Save As, or Save. To export the swf file you can press CTL + Enter
and it will automatically create the swf file in the same location you have saved your flash file.


Please note DFP does not fully support ActionScript 3 and you still may experience pop up
blocker issues.

Good Luck
