How to load web page after movie without "click here"?

How to load web page after movie without "click here"?

(OP)
Hi -
I've seen web pages where the browser advances to the home page right after the Flash movie plays without any action from the user.  Can someone please let me know how to do this?

Thanks much!

RE: How to load web page after movie without "click here"?

Add a keyframe to the last frame of your movie.  In that frame add a get URL action that points to your home page.

RE: How to load web page after movie without "click here"?

If your not completely sure on how to do the directions above, In the last keyframe of you flash movie double click that keyframe.Then go to actions, then the plus button, then get url. Type in the url eg.http:// ... ...
I hope this was of some help. Travelstationnet@yahoo.com

Only problem is now it jumps too fast.  I'd like the movie to sit on the screen for a few seconds before it goes to the index page.  I tried adding a few frames but it still jumps too fast.  Would you suggest I add more frames?

RE: How to load web page after movie without "click here"?

More frames would probably be easiest, but I learned my computer skills during the days of BASIC and DOS, so I use a variable and a GO TO loop to pause a movie.  This way, it is simple to change durations.  All I have to do is change one variable number.

If you want to know how I do this procedure, you can e-mail me.

I tried emailing you, Judland, but received no reply, so I'll ask here in the forum.  Not sure what you mean by 'variables' and 'GOTO loops'.  Some of us in here are not programmers who started out "in the days of BASIC and DOS", so you'll have to speak English. :-)

You want to run that by me again?

Thanks -

Go to your first frame (any layer) and double click, in the action tab press the plus sign and Set variable. In the variable box write x and in the value box write 1, press the abc button by the value box and change it to an = sign (expression).

Go to your last frame and do the same except that this time instead of writing 1 in the value write x + 1

Go to the next frame and add a keyframe (in all your visible layers) so you keep the same look but add a new frame. Select the new frame (any layer) and double click it. In the action tab, press the plus sign and add IF, then press the button that says ADD ELSE/ELSE IF.

Select the if row in the left box and add the condition: x=50 or x=20 or x=whatever you want -- 50 is about 4 seconds, depending on your frame rate, but you get the idea, this is what is going to control the waiting time.

While the if row is still blue, press the plus sign again and Add a GET URL to the Url that you want to go after the waiting time.

Select the ELSE row in the left box and press the plus sign, add a GO TO statement and in the frame select PREVIOUS FRAME.

That will do the trick, if you need more help or something write me at ferhelping@yahoo.com

Good luck
