im a beginner and im making a site that includes movies and pictures.

the movies are one size and the pictures are another (dimensions not file size).

i know how to link to new screens (_blank in the getURL action). However i need to have a specific size for the window.

i need two window sizes. one for the movies and the other for the pictures. i also need the toolbars taken off of the the top of the page.

I understand that some Java will be involves which is fine. But how do i write this into flash?. Or do i need to do something with the script of the page the flash is embedded onto?

One site that does what i want is www.bumfights.com (yeah i know its tastless but click on a picture and the pop up window will be one size for every picture and click on a movie and its another size for the lot.)

if you cant understand what im on about just check out that site.

thanks for your help.

See the Spawning Windows tutorial (Beginner's section) and remember that if you want only 1 window to popup total, use the same name in the name field for each picture, If you want to be able to have multiple images open at once, each in their own window, use a different name in the name field each time.
