    Flash buttons in frontpage. HELP

    I everybody, i'm not a new in the flash world, just in the actionscript world.

    Now that there's no more wizard mode, i'm done, things are just impossible
    for the most simple task... never understood that change.

    Anyway... i've a question, i'm building a site on frontpage and having flash
    buttons instead of the usual on frontpage, i finished the buttons on
    one other, those were just links, when you preview a website on explorer you
    get the - file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/bu.bu2/Desktop/Mine/Books/library_Anthologies.htm
    and this goes to all of the links that you click, then when a site goes to the
    WEB, this becomes the regular - .www.library.com/anthologies.html. - something like that.

    The problem now is, with the flash buttons, frontpage does not see the flash
    buttons as buttons, just a flash movie, inside the flash movie you can have
    a banner or a intro movie before the main page, whatever, frontpage will
    present the flash movie with the - my house.swf - in the upper left corner of
    the flash movie, nothing more, is you want to see you must preview the site.
    Since frontpage does not ask if the flash movie is a button, i was wonder
    how can i put the target of the button just like a regular button or link in the
    frontpage, that would do what i just explain above, with this - file:///C:/Documents.

    I know this "sounds" very confusing, i hope someone undestands.

    I'm not sure about Frontpage, but to use Flash to open an html page you would use:

    getURL("myPage.html");

    _t
    I don't feel tardy.

    I'll try to explain again:

    I use the "Insert" - "Web Component" - "Advanced Controls" - "Movie in Flash Format"
    to put anything made in flash (.swf) in this case, is a button, that will open when
    "onRelease" one page of the website, in the website, just like any other link.
    The question is, how can i target that page (still in the computer), just like you
    would "insert a hyperlink" to a word or a frase, or a "interactive button".

    code:
    //on frame 1 of the Flash movie (button)

    myBtn.onRelease = function(){
    getURL("myPage.html");
    }



    That Flash button will open the html page "myPage.html" when it is released. Other than that, I'm sorry but I don't understand what you are looking for.
