    Refresh an iFrame with Flash and php?

    I'm pretty new to php, but I'm trying to build a page that uses Flash to show / choose documents, and then html to show them in an iFrame below (because Flash can't show things like powerpoint). I've managed to send information from Flash to a php file, but I can't get the iFrame to show the document that I chose.

    Is there a way for php to tell an iFrame to refresh with the new url it creates when it gets information from Flash?

    flash can load an url into a target - such as _blank, top, or a named frame.

    How can one show powerpoint in an iframe? does that require windows?

    Thanks so much! Works perfectly. I've been using that command for a long time, and I didn't know that you could specify a specific frame with navigateToURL(). Very cool.

    My plan for the iFrame was to upload the powerpoints, etc to GoogleDocs, and then use the url they provide to show them in the iFrame. Still looking for a way to have the documents hosted on my server only in some kind of viewer, but this method will work for the time-being.

    Thanks again!
