I've been googling this, looking through the forums here, and
working on a solution based on o'reilly's flash hacks with a work
around for firefox... but keep coming up against a brick wall. I
know it's been done cross platform, and I know it probably requires
a lot of code. (e.g. nike.com)
Anyone have a pointer that I may be missing on this? I'm
currently working on a solution that uses an html page with an
variable in the flash movie which listens for the change. I'm
close, but I can't get it working consistently. Any thoughts?
I know it can be done with anchors, but that only seems to
work in ie. This has to work in all 3 major browsers (firefox(moz),
if im understanding right, you want to be able to use the
back button in your flash movie, and not have it exit the page? if
so, check out SWFAddress..pretty simple, i wont build a site
without it anymore..
I figured out my own work around for the time being.... I had
everything right except for the triggering of the js in the
iframe... I needed to have that happen onLoad rather than in the
body of the document.... we also needed to fix the object reference
I'll definitely check this out because it solves some
additional problems we'll be needing to fix for future sites.
