Hi, I'm pretty new to flash for web. and i have a few questions.
I'm designing a website with some flash elements in it.
A Header with a simple animation and a tab based navigation.
I want the animation to play only once . when i go to a different html page i dont want the flash file to play again although its a new page!
Should i do it with flash cookies or theres an easier way to do it ?
The navigation is tab based, so the question is almost the same, i want the navigation to save the tab position or the page position
even though the user is navigating to a new page. From what i know it can be done with cookies or that i need to create 4 different SWF files to
each page... Again im pretty sure theres a better way to do it. After all the user can disable cookies and the the site wont play correctly, :/ I think....
flash player on their computer (if there are such people) or people that will view the site in mobile devices .
Its my first Thread in this community,
Hope that some one can give me a good answer.....
Hopefully you'll get some good info from a few people (not necessarily me, but I try), but here's some ideas based on using FlashVars.
For the header, I'd probably approach it from the stance that the home page is the animation page, and all others aren't. So using FlashVars you could control whether or not the animation plays.
Similarly, for the navigation, your individual pages could use FlashVars to indicate which nav button (movieclip) is sent to its selected state.
Thanks alot Ned Murphy,
Its a perfect soloution, working great !!:)
