Hour 19. Linking a Movie to the Web > What Other Web Tasks Can Flash Do?

What Other Web Tasks Can Flash Do?

For the rest of this hour, you'll learn some useful and powerful ways to combine Flash with standard HTML. If you already know HTML, you should be able to take this information and run with it. If you're not familiar with HTML, the rest of this hour should still be useful because you'll see some examples of what's possible. In addition, you'll see some code snippets that you can probably use in the future. If you want to learn more about the concepts discussed this hour, you can look to any good HTML resource.

Targeting Windows

You probably noticed that when you clicked the button you created in the second task this hour, “Use getURL to Create a Hyperlink,” not only were you hyperlinked to another page, but the page you were viewing (the one with your Flash movie) was actually replaced with the new page. This is the default behavior for any hyperlink (as is the case with the HTML equivalent, A HREF). Alternatively, you can specify the window parameter to change the behavior from “replace this page with another” to “jump to a new web page and put it in new window.”
