    Internal Linking in Flash

    citsym

      With HTML we can jump to any portion of the page by putting the tag <a name="something">jump here</a> at any portion of the page and then linking to #something. Can I do something similar in flash? How to it make it so that the user can jump to any position on a flash file by simply clicking?

          Thats a good question and one i have never though of in flex. But if i had to consider how to do this i would imagine that i would set focus on a child component via a button or a link button. Though this is untested i believe it would work...

          Ill try to through and example together and posted later. I have a conference call i have to attend for work :-)

            here is a basic example.

             

            <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
            <s:Application xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009" 
                  xmlns:s="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/spark" 
                  xmlns:mx="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/mx"
                  
                  >
             <fx:Script>
              <![CDATA[
               protected function button1_clickHandler(event:MouseEvent):void
               {
               //Canvas1.setFocus();
               textTest.setFocus();
               }
              ]]>
             </fx:Script>
             <fx:Declarations>
              <!-- Place non-visual elements (e.g., services, value objects) here -->
             </fx:Declarations>
            <s:Button label="focus" click="button1_clickHandler(event)"/>
             
             
            <mx:Canvas id="Canvas1" y="600"  width="400" backgroundColor="black" height="193">
             <s:TextInput id="textTest"/>
            </mx:Canvas>
            
            </s:Application>
