I have a question about how this site works:
My friend asked me this question and I didn't know the answer: I was wondering what action is assigned to the buttons in the flash menu in the left frame that loads the corresponding html page in the right frame?
You have to use the getURL action.
In URL you put the page you want to see and in Window you put the name you gave to the frame.
I can't seem to get it to work either.
I understand you can use the set options like _blank, _self, etc. Do you have to use the _framenameofchoice or do you just use framenameofchoice without the _.
Sorry if this is confusing, but it keeps opening up as though it is _blank. What am I doing wrong?
PS: as you can tell I am new to Flash
I did it once and I recall that it was without the"_...."
So just put the name of the frame.
Let me know if it works.
In case you need to still resolve the problem, i thought i may aswell help out.
In flash, do the following:
* Assign getURL action to button
* Type the absolute URL address, or local file name ie: new.html, in the 'URL' box.
* Type the name of the frame that right.html will load into, in the 'window' box
If for example, the right frame in which other .html's are to load into is called content, then you'd type content into the 'window' box.
Hope this helps
Nice one, that was it.
Without the '_' IS the key! Just type the 'frame name' right into the window box!
