Communicating Through the Web Browser

Flash links to the Web browser through the basic action getURL in the Actions panel (Figure 6.1). This action is very similar to the HTML tag <A HREF>, where the URL of a Web site is specified in the form of http://www.domainname.com/directory. Use an absolute URL (a complete address to a specific file) to link to any Web site, or use a relative URL (a path to a file that's described in relation to the current directory) to link to local files contained on your hard drive or a CD-ROM. The getURL action also provides ways to target different frames you create within the browser window or entirely new browser windows. You can create Flash movies that navigate between these frames and windows and control what loads in each one.
