Linking to a html named anchor from flash

 2:27 am on Apr 14, 2008 (gmt 0)

Most of the content on my webpage is inside of a flash frame and I would like to allow my users to be able to jump to another section of the html page by clicking on a link inside the swf file. Has anyone been able to get this to work successfully?

Thanks for the help.

Did you try encoding the pound sign?

Thank you for the repley. I've done something similar. The anchor on my html page is called "bottom" so i've used the following code:

on (release) {

In this example the pound sign is encoded but im still not having any success.

You tried with the full URL? Flash doesn't "know" what page it "lives" on. getURL('http://www.example.com/page.html#my_anchor');

Also it requires encoding for special characters. Give it a shot. :-)
