Is there a way to load another webpage into a flash movie
with AS2 or 3 so it displays within the movie? I'd like to do
something similar to an html iframe where I have a box that
contains another website (a web-accessed application). I'm trying
to make a "control panel" flash interface where users can access
several different web apps from the same place, and they would open
right in the interface--not in a new window. Any help would be
You can load the raw html - if flash is told (e.g. via
flashvars) the url of the page that you want (its available in
flash as what you would think of as the browser's 'view source'
style plain text) with either as2 or as3.
But you can't do full browser-style rendering of the content
because flash just can't do all that. You could parse the raw html
(probably a custom parser as I think the internal xml parser might
choke on some of the tags in html that are not closed such as
<br> etc) and just pick out bits of text or images that you
could display but you can't achieve an embedded browser.
Adobe's AIR might be more what you want - it has embedded
browser support- but it doesn't run inside a browser like flash.
