    Link to a specific scene = possible?


    Hello.

    I'm just beginning to learn how to work with flash. Now I have created a Menu in flash. It consists of a main menu, and 5 sub-menus. The flash movie has 6 scenes: Scene1 = the main menu, and scene 2 - 6 are the submenus.

    Is it possible to make an HTML link to for example Scene 3 in this Flash movie? If so, tell me how!

    Thnx.

    might just be possible if you use a variable, i.e. submenu(s) all link to the flash movie, but pass a variable containing ("scene4" "frame1") or whatever so that the swf jumps straight to the designated spot

    of course, an easier way would be to split the movie up into seperate swfs and html link them all together??

    hang on... i've just re-read your original question - do you mean that you want to link WITHIN the same flash movie? i.e. scene 1 to scene (x) ?

    No, i want to link to the specific scene from another HTML page. I was thinking about something like this:

    <A HREF="menu.swf?scene=submenu1">LINK</A>

    I know this is not possible, but maybe this makes clear what I mean.

    However I think your idea of splitting up the menu.swf into more swf files might also solve my problem.

    Thanx.

    yeah, i think splitting them up would make it easier - but hey, if you find out how to do the harder way, you'll learn a bit more!

    This is possible, although it is a tough piece of work...I know there is an example of this somewhere called hawaii.zip in which all you ask is shown...

    ...I'll try and locate it for you (it is on the web)

    just a thought ... but when you use the <a href="some.swf?subject=yes"> you are passing a variable to the swf .. why don't you just check what the value of that variable is on the first frame and then go to that label. off-hand can't think why that can't be done.
