I'm working on a flash site that contains several buttons,
each of which should open a different pop-up window.
I've found several scripts to enable me to open pop-up
windows from my flash files; however, they all rely on the HTML
file housing the flash to specify the URL of the pop-up. If I want
the option of opening different pop-up windows from the same flash
file, how do I do this?
firstly dont use pop-ups without a very good reason -
EVERYONE hates them. Secondly when you say flash site is everything
contained within a swf? or are the buttons individual small flash
files? In the first instance I would instead consider using the
very nifty pop-up component in flash - way cooler and a lot less
Its dead easy to use just check the help files.
In the second instance or if pop-up component is
inappropriate you will have a little more difficulty...I would
abandon the idea of a pop-up if you can and suffice with a new
blank page by using the _blank option when setting your url
Also if you dont know how to link in flash check the help but
its basically this -
I didn't want to use pop-up windows, but couldn't figure out
how to do what I wanted to do without them...
But anyway, it's the first option - the buttons are each
symbols within the same flash. The pop-up windows themselves are
separate flash files. I tried looking this up in the help section
but am not having any luck searching for "pop-up" - any other
thoughts as to what search query I should use?
