controlling flash with html
hi all. I know a bit about flash and html but don't know much about how to control them together. I have a test page for a hub site that I'm doing that needs to be html/css. However, a flash component was asked for. The client wants a bit of motion without the site being full flash. This is a sketch of the site. When you click on history you can see a .swf file with a transparent background slide overtop the image of the furniture. However, if you then click on showrooms, a new swf has to load. Is there a way to just make one .swf file for all of the links on the left and control what flash frame should play or stop with the html links that I have. Any help or resources would be greatly appreciated.
There are two ways you could do this:
1. The easiest way would be to bring the navigation into Flash. Then you can use internal ActionScript commands to execute whatever animation that you require. I would assume you know how to do this from the Flash that you're already using.
Is that what you're looking for? You can find a lot of resources on the External API by a simple Google search. I'm a little busy today or I'd find you some resources.
If you have any troubles, post back.
