View Full Version : Link to open a page in a different frame

01-09-2001, 08:45 PM

I wonder if any one could help me. This probably sounds really stupid but I am new to Flash and very stuck! I am using a web page with two frames. The left frame has a flash movie with links on, the right is a standard HTML page. When I click on the links on the left (in the movie) I want it to open the page in the frame on the right. I have gone to Windows - Actions - getURL and put my url in and the name of my right hand frame which has produced the following code:

on (release) {
getURL ("home.htm", "_right");

but it was still opening up the page in the left frame (the same as the movie).

So I renamed the right frame to 'sprouts' (dont ask me why) and renamed the window in the getURL action to _sprouts and now it is opening up in a blank window.

I am going mad?

No you're just adding strange underscroes to everything :)

Try 'sprouts' without the underscore and it should work fine.
