    Clueless about frames ...

    Hi everyone. I was wondering about frames. When I say frames, I mean frames as used in HTML, when you split the screen into pieces. I'm clueless about creating these kinds of frames in FlashMX. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

    creating these kinds of frames in FlashMX
    not sure what you mean..do you mean you want to change the content of a certain frame within a frameset from a button in Flash?

    Or do you mean creating a frameset in the first place with say a top frame and big lower one that scrolls?

    Because if you're talking about just setting up a frameset thats nothing to do with Flash, thats just pure HTML.

    If you got Dreamweaver you can set one up in seconds.

    What I meant...

    What I meant is that if I set up a button, I could tell it to have change the page, but only change part of the page. Am I being more clear?... To be even more clear, for example, I want to be able to have a part of the page that is NON-movable.

    Hope this is better,

    1st you have to make the HTML frames. I use DreamweaverMX.
    When you insert a frame, Dreamweaver names them leftFrame, mainFrame, topFrame, you get the idea.

    2nd when you make your Flash buttons, you need to program them like this..

    on (release) {
    getURL("home.htm", "mainFrame");

    This example will load a html file named "home" into the mainFrame of your "FRAMESET.htm"

    Hope this helps you!
