Flash has named anchors (in that you can have a '#xxxx' in the url for your
web page and the SWF movie in there will jump to the corresponding anchor.
But you need the write html setup and you need to set the labels especially
in the flash movie.
Named anchors in flash also let you use forward/backward to navigate .. but
that is buggy if you every jump within your movie .. but the #xxxx in your
URL will work ok.
Jeckl - thanks for the response but I'm not sure I understand what you think I should do.
My SWF dynamically brings in an HTML file.
Near the top of this HTML there's a link like this:
<a href="#2e"> Jump to Topic 2e. </a>
Near the bottom of the same HTML file there is an anchor like this:
<a name="2e"> Topic 2(e) </a>
When the user viewing the SWF sees this text and they click on the top link they should "jump" to the bottom. The only thing that should happen is the text scrolls to the named anchor at the bottom. I'm not opening or loading another SWF.
I don't want a browser to open.
I tried all variations of single quotes, double qoutes, escaped quotes and anything else I could think of.
Can anyone suggest a way to make this happen?
In File > Publish Settings, under the HTML tab, select Flash with Named Anchors under the Template section:
Insert Script and HTML Anchors to enable bookmarking of Macromedia Flash Player 6 and above content.
Karl - That's amazing! Following what you said I found the file Anchors.html and it had the same instructions: "Insert Script and HTML Anchors to enable bookmarking of Macromedia Flash Player 6 and above content."
I don't know what that means!
Neither of these procedures worked.
