    absolute position of movie to monitor/screen

    hi
    i'm looking for an answer since hours now, and it might well be that this is finally going to drive me mad!



    what i want to do is the following:

    I'm having this site in a browser window (that's where most sites are, hehe), it's completely one single flash movie.

    on(release) of a certain button inside this movie i use
    getURL("javascript:window.open(blabla)");
    to open a popup.

    now i want this popup to be always in the same place of that flash layout, no matter where the browser window is or how big or whatever.

    thing is: to open a popup you have to provide an absolute screen(i mean monitor/screen not flash mx/screen)-position like 0,0 being the left upper corner of your monitor.

    so i end up needing to know what the absolute screen-position of my main flash-movie is...



    would be soo glad if anybody had any (any) solution for this


    thanks

    If u are using Dreamweaver, then set the browser left-margin and top-margin position to 0 thru page properties. This should solve ur problem.

    no sorry, that's not it.

    i'm not looking for a position inside a browser window.

    i'd like to have the position of the browser window relatively to the screen at least, even better would be the screen coordinates of the flashmovie (not relatively to the browser window but to the screen aagain)

    thanks for your reply anyway
