    I think this will work, although I've never used it:
    Code:
    getURL("javascript:window.resizeTo(800,600)");
    This should resize the window to 800 x 600.

    hý ninjakannon, thanks for repling so fast, do u know also how I could detect the position of where the object is bouncing (because is a random movement).. and say than to the browser to reach that point?

    Ok, sorry that didn't work. I looked up javascript on google and found a function that resized the window, but obviously not the current one.

    Basicaly you can do getURL("javascript:javaFunction()"); in flash, this will call the javascript function in place of 'javaFunction'. I would expect that this is the method that you will have to use; although I do not know what javascript function you will have to use.

    And your object, if it is in flash then get its X and Y position using:
    Code:
    _root.bouncingObject._x
    _root.bouncingObject._y
    Where 'bouncingObject' is, you will need to put the instance name of the bouncing movieClip. The X and Y values are where the movieclip is on the stage.

    Hope this helps

    here what I have in the flash file:

    import flash.external.ExternalInterface;
    ExternalInterface.call( "resize", width, height );
    prova.onPress = function() {
    ismoving();
    prova.startDrag();
    }
    function ismoving (){
    width = prova._x;
    Stage.width = prova._x;
    height = prova._y;
    Stage.height = prova._y;
    }
    var stageL:Object=newObject();
    Stage.addListener(stageL);

    here the javascript:

    <script>
    function resize(width, height)
    {
    window.resizeTo(width,height);
    }
    -->
    </script>

    but it doesn't work!!!!!
    Anybody there that has an idea of what is wrong or what is missing??
