Chapter 26. Communicating Locally > Controlling the Browser

Controlling the Browser

Your Macromedia Flash movies can run in one of several environments. The most common environment is a Flash Player in a Web browser. You can also run a Flash movie as a standalone projector or inside a Macromedia Director movie. In all these cases, the movie can communicate with the environment in a number of ways. In this chapter, you’ll look at each environment and how the movie can communicate with it.

Flash movies can work just like the HTML <A HREF> tag when viewed in a Web browser, acting as a navigation control for the browser and changing the page being shown in the browser. They can also affect the page being shown in other browser windows and frames.
