ReachDisplay Flash Specifications
      All animations must be no longer than 15 seconds. All animations must not repeat more than 3 times. Frame Rate must be 15-20 fps. All Flash ads must be published for Flash Player version 4 through 8 (later versions will not be accepted). All Flash ads must be published in Actionscript version 1 or 2 (version 3 will not be accepted). Click Tags: All Flash banner ads are required to support the clickTAG variable. The clickTAG is the tracking code assigned by the publisher to an individual ad. It allows the publisher to register where the ad was displayed when it was clicked and helps ReachLocal evaluate the effectiveness of the banner creative. The variable name must be reflected exactly as follows: clickTAG (upper-case TAG; no space between click and
TAG; not click tag, Click Tag, or any other form).

The Flash banner ad is required to contain the code for the clickTAG parameter EXACTLY as it appears below: on (release) { if (clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:") { getURL(clickTAG, "_blank"); } } The exact code above* should be copied and pasted onto a button symbol that covers the whole display creative. It does not go on individual frames, and only needs to be included once. There should be no URLs added to the clickTAG.
*Additional Web Developer Information: Depending on the structure of your Flash ad, it may be necessary to prepend "_root." or "_level0." to the clickTAG above, resulting in "_root.clickTAG" or "_level0.clickTAG".

All Flash (SWF) files should be provided in a compressed (zipped) folder. To compress the file or folder, right-click and select “Send To > Compressed (zipped) Folder”.
