pop-up windows in flash 3

pop-up windows in flash 3

Using flash 3 for web design for about 4 weeks, I am having dificulties with opening a small popup windows within the browser, Options on the get url action seems limited is there any way to size a new window such as adding java script etc?

One more question regarding anchoring movies within a movie? Is it posible? Mine keep on appearing in top left corner no matter the dimensions of the movie.

If you can help thanks.

RE: pop-up windows in flash 3

Flash provides an action called FSCommand that allows you to communicate with the browser. You can pass javascript or comunicate with javascript in the header of your HTML page. I'm not sure I understand the second question are you refering to a "movie clip" or an external movie loaded with the LoadMovie command

RE: pop-up windows in flash 3

chose a get url action,
write JavaScript:windowname()
write in your html tag
function windowname()
window.open "your.html","name","toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no, scrollbars=no,resizable=no,top=50,left=200,width=198,height=317");
