a couple things: 1) I want a btn in flash to open up a
different html document within the same browser window, but when I
say getUrl it will only open in _blank without need for a change in
security settings. I don't my users to have to reset thier security
2) and once I get there I want my flash menu to know which
html page its on, so I think I need to send a variable into my menu
swf from the html in that new page... but how do i do that?
For the second, you can do it in a couple of ways. Use
Or if you want to do it within entirely Flash then look up
Local Shared Objects. Very useful stuff.
With either method set the location when the menu is clicked
or when a page is loaded.
