is the other html page already open when your button will be clicked? if not, will your current page stay open while the 2nd html page opens?
The other page is NOT open; the current page will close, thanks
then this isn't going to be the easiest thing for you. you need to:
1. use getURL() to open your other html page, append a query string to the url that indicates the frame you want to display in the other swf
4. use preloader code in your other swf to ensure the needed frame is loaded and execute your goto to display the desired frame.
Holy cow, I dont know any of that.
Once I "get url", isn't there just a way with naming the swf and "goto" or "with" or any of that elementary stuff?
Otherwise I just make a twin html page that simply starts at the desired location and call that up.
The basic idea is simply to avoid the intro if anyone returns to the first html page.
no. there's no easy way to do what you originally requested.
but, if all you want is to skip an intro when users return, that should be done differently. you could use the flash sharedobject to indicate a user has previously viewed your intro. then when they return that sharedobject would be recalled and your intro skipped.
if it is easy, or there is some place to read that, then perhaps you could direct me?
Altho the help files are often tough cuz I still dont even know syntax concepts or what "string" means etc.
Hard to believe? But if I can get something to work, I just move on to my other life and that's the end of my training.
With modern speeds, I dont need to shave 5 kb here and there.
But thanks !
you can check the flash help files under sharedobject. there's example code that shows how to use it. see if you can tweak it to meet your needs.
