i am using the tutorial file "scriptassist_complete.fla" to
perform a custom task. This file comes with Flash.
i want to embed the swf file in several different html files
in a dingle directory.
Then, based on the URL, jump to a label (home, about, product
or contact) and stop. So when you load any page that contains the
swf the swf jumps to the corresponding label without having to
click a button in the swf.
The problem is i don't know how to capture the url parse it
to get just the file name of the html file and use that to jump to
gotoAndStop at a label.
Seems to me you would be much better off just adding a
flashvar to your html and your swf. Anytime your swf loads it will
repopulate the flashvar and then you would have a string with just
the name of the frame.
Granted it would add a few lines of custom code to your html
instead of your swf, but that seems simpler then trying to parse
the URL if you can even capture the URL
