Using clickTAG

The industry standard to track clicks when Flash banners are being employed is to use a variable called clickTAG.

Please see Adobe’s official guide on how to set up a Flash file to use the clickTAG variable within Flash.

Note: The variable name is case sensitive in newer versions of Flash. AJOT.com does try to correct the case if it detects a Flash file using an incorrect case. However, it is always best to use the correct case in the first place to avoid any possible issues arising.

ClickTAG Scripts

Original from Adobe.com

on (release) {
 if (clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:") {
 getURL(clickTAG); 
 }
} 

Another version FlashClickTag.com that worked in cases where the Adobe.com version was problematic (Primary with the browser not opening a new window onMouseUp)

on (release) {

 if (_root.clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:") { 
 getURL(_root.clickTAG, "_blank"); 
 }
}
