on (release) {

getURL(_root.sjb_banner_link, _root.sjb_banner_window);

}

for ActionScript 3 use

this.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, sjb_banner_click);

function sjb_banner_click(evt:MouseEvent):void {

navigateToURL(new URLRequest(this.root.loaderInfo.parameters.sjb_banner_link),

this.root.loaderInfo.parameters.sjb_banner_window);

}

 

Note

If this code is not added to the flash banner action script then the Impressions, Clicks and Clickthrough rate will not be counted by the system.
