    Mini Browser / Navigation

    Hi all,

    I would like to simulate the functionality of a web browser in my flash file. Here is the scenerio:

    1) I need a window
    Should I use a Scrollbar/DynTextfield?, Scrollpane?, Other?

    2) This window should be able to load?/reference? external text or HTML? files. When I click a button, the movie progresses to the next frame where my window is and loads the first external file.

    Page 1
    |--> links to page 2
    |--> links to page 5
    Page 2
    |--> links to page 3
    etc.

    3) These files need to have hyperlinks to other files. Basically, a mini browser.

    I have no idea how to accomplish this. Just so you know, this post could also have gone in the "Newbie" forum. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been told it is rather easy to do.

    Thanks,
    D.

    I have started the project. I guess what I really want to know is, is it possible? Is it difficult to do? I have been searching for tutorials that address my problem but have yet to find an elegant solution. Can you point me in the right direction?

    I do have one MX specific question:

    I create a MC and inside put a Dynamic Textfield and then attach a Scrollbar to it. When I add an instance of the MC in the main clip, the scrollbar does not work. What am I doing wrong? If I do the same steps inside the main clip, it works fine.

    Cheers,
    D.
