Hello everyone, I need some help opening a new window of a certian size with limited features.

Here's my scenario:

I have developed a page in Flash MX and I want to be able to click on a link in the flash movie which opens a new window on top that is limited to 600 x 500 pixels, no tollbar, no location, no directory etc.

I have worked out how to call a new window from Flash MX and I have worked out how to get a Javascript to make the window I want but I cant seem to be able to do it in one step.

Can anyoone help please?

Rgds,

Sorry I can't answer this question. sad.gif

I am however moving it to the Flash and Multimedia forum as it seems you are looking for help with how to open a new window specifically using Flash.

Thanks John, you can see from my ambigious question that I am a newbie. All I really want to do it open a new window wiht pre-determined parameters.

We know how to do that, but not how to do it from Flash. Do you use normal JavaScript to do this from within Flash? In that case, see http://htmlhelp.com/faq/html/links.html#window-specify .

And I can't recommend the advice in the tutorial either.

Google leads me to believe it's something along the lines of getUrl.

Add this to the launch button in your flash file:

CODE
on (release) {
getURL("java script:launch('URL-HERE')");
}



Add the following to the html page that your flash movie is embedded in.

CODE
<script language="javascript">
function launch (page) {
openwin = this.open(page,"Javascript test",& #34;location=no,scrollbars=yes,toolbar=no,menubar=no,resizable=no,width=600,heig
ht=500,top=20,left=20");}
</script>


Note: This will only work if it is running on a server.

Note that there probably shouldn't be a space between "java" and "script", this is a bug in the forum software (even if you type "javascript" the space is sometimes added).

I think it's supposed to be a security measure, but IMHO it serves as a good reminder that any time you're tempted to use java script:... pseudo-URLs, you should reconsider. It's better to use a real URL, and to put the JavaScript in an event handler. ;-)
