ClickTAG for Flash (swf) creatives
How to assign a clickTAG for Flash v7-10 using ActionScript 2.0
A clickTAG is a parameter used in Flash banner ads. The parameter is a variable that defines the destination URL.
The clickTAG enables the ad server to gain metrics such as the amount of clicks and impressions enabling
advertisers to evaluate how effective the ad campaign has been
To properly track clicks with a flash ad, the original source file (.fla) must be prepared to receive click-through
parameters. Destination URLs must not be hardcoded into the ad as this will prevent click tracking.
The code below will allow the adserver to dynamically assign a destination URL to the ad:
on (release)
{
getURL (_root.clickTAG, "_blank");
}
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Edit the .fla file
If the whole file is meant to be clickable, a transparent button should be placed on the top layer of the SWF.
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.
Place the clickTAG actionscript (listed above) as the instructions for the “on(release)” event.
Make sure to check off the "Expression" checkbox for the URL field that is the variable for the getURL
actionscript function.
