    I have a html menu that I want to be clickable that will go to a certain frame in a flash movie.

    Do I use the FS command or do I use javascript? (The main menu is a flash movie, but the other pages are plain html.)

    Do I use a hidden frame so that the main menu is loaded before I make the jump into flash?

    I'm not completely certain I understand what you want to do.. but here goes..

    How about passing the "go to frame" request in the query string of the hyperlink. You can set up your HTML link like this:

    <A HREF="flashmovie.swf?gotoframe=4">

    Then check the small demo I have posted at
    http://www.rjscs.com/scotty/demos/de...tml?var1=Flash is&var2=FUN!

    for info on passing that variable to Flash. Then you simply put a little action script at the beginnig of your Flash movie, like this:

    Go to and Play (gotoframe)


    That should do it, I think.
