    K, sorry bout the link but I guess they got that one wrong too in their own website (look at the reload button they've made on the parent browser) I'm just copying what it says...

    Anyway, here's the correct link to that : http://www.sym-music.it

    I hope this time I'll get some answers and some good ones too. Thanks for your concern and added infos.

    A sample .fla, etc. would be nice

    ah yes, i see why it didn't work. Maybe they used to have .com and just never changed it.

    anyway. I will put together a .zip file for you to see. The thing is, most of the chromeless has nothing to do with Flash, it's mostly java in the Html page.

    All i need to know, is whether you want it to open from a html page automatically, from a html page with a button, or from a flash movie with a button.

    Let me know and i'll be able to help

    Hello ad_mtk2 ! Thanks for responding...

    Actually I planned to use the chromeless_30.js in this two platform:


    1.) From an html with a .gif button (to lunch the main
    Flash interface)

    and,

    2.) From the Flash movie interface (to open a new
    window with the downloadable art(CG) in it.

    Thanks!

    Thanks a lot man! I'll put you in my "respect" page when my website is done!

    Actually, I've tried using it for my own and my interface was loaded into a frameless window but there are just two problems : my window is not focused on the center and the browser frame still shows up in Netscape 6.0

    im not sure about how this version was done, and im not interested in looking at code since you can do that yourself.

    http://www.microbians.com/ does exactly the same thing, once there site is launched theres a link to the download code... it can be seen here.... http://www.becomeinteractive.co.uk/

    hope that helped,

    I think microbians did the original script and I got it quite right this time (my screen/window is now focused in the center) What http://www.sym-music.it did however was erase the holder on top and just make the close button as part of the Flash interface. If anyone know how to do that..please tell me This does not work on all Netscape browser tho..but still it's worth knowing

    Okey, that was cool parorrey...I got it working now. I've also got the command for closing the window in IE with the help of ad_mtk2 but :

    on (release) {
    getURL("javascript:window.close()", "_self");
    }

    won't work in netscape...yours does. Can you give me a sample of how to do this...

    on (release) {
    getURL("javascript:window.close()", "_parent");
    }

    and i reckon..always use _parent..that you might use frames anytime in your html page.that work well everywhere and in every situation...try it..

    Great! That worked... Thanks parorrey

    Do you happen to know also how to drag this window from Flash? Because now I have a full Flash interface (without the browser handles) but I cannot drag it..

    Thanks!

    technically it is not possible..as you are in a container i.e. HTML page (though not visible but it is there)and you 've made its draggable bar disable..so html page can't be drageed from within Flash(to my best knowledge.dont know if it is still possible)...you need to enable that bar like i 've done it.. further i think it is very annoying as a user not to be able to drag your window though chromless but it should be able draggable at least..so i think copy my chromless.js file and use it..it is better ..i 've tried many chromless scripts and it is the best ....well in my view only.....hahahah by the way it is a worthy view.. so change your script..
