Here's my situation. I have a master .chm and the main intro
/ welcome page the user sees, contains an embedded flash file (.swf
file). Inside the swf there are some images that when clicked on
are supposed to jump the user to sub .chm files that are merged
into the master .chm. However, when I click on the link nothing
happens. I can link to actual pages in the main help file and to
pages on the web, but it won't open a sub .chm help file.
My work around for this was to create a redirection .htm
link to the actual .chm file:
This does work. However, because of the redirection, users
can't use the help viewer's "Back" button anymore to get to the
main page with the .swf, because clicking Back hits the redirection
and just pushes the user right back to the current page.
Any suggestions on getting links to sub .chm projects work
from within a .swf file?
What are you using to create the .SWF? If you aren't getting
a .SWF to link properly, oftentimes it is because of security
restrictions that are set by the Flash control. I have a tutorial
on setting these that may help. You may view it by
here. Note that it has a link to the Flash Settings Manager so
you don't have to hunt it up.
Thanks Rick. I'm using an older version of SWiSH (version
2.0) to create this .swf file. I don't think it's a problem with
the Flash security setting. I went ahead and added my project
folder, but still the same thing (that is, nothing) happens when I
click on the link.
