I need help closing my flash window.
Here's what I got;

On the entrance page-
<head>
<script>
<!--

/*
*/

function fullwin(){
window.open("flashpage.html","","fullscreen,scrollbars")
}
//-->
</script>

<body>
<form>
<input type=button onClick="fullwin()" value="ENTER"><br>
</form>

On the flashpage.html, In the .fla - button instance,
on release
get url ("javascript:window.close()")

Is it not working because
I used a form button to open this full window?
Help,
Thanks

Usually you get a prompt asking to confirm the close of the window...

Do you get to see the prompt ?

For example.. This code...
<a href="#" onclick="window.close()">Close this window</a>
....will prompt the user.

Maybe flash is just ignoring the command ?

I'm sure the only way to close a window without this promt is to do so from the parent window.

Let me check...

Definately not.

I have just produced my own flash movie that closes a window... and it prompts in IE5 but simply closes in Netscape 4.

The fla file can be found here...

Try testing this on your machine to see if it works...

It never has given a prompt, it's on top of the 1st (entrance) page.
I've used the full screen before -flash, (I'm just starting to get into flash) but the full window I opened has frameset, and I put this into any of the frames - <a href="javascript:top.close()"><img src="img/exit.jpg" border="0"></a>
and it worked perfect.

Yes.

You have this- get url;
javascript:close()
and it works perfect, I changed mine,
uploaded it and tried it (IE5)
no prompt, it just closed, exactly what I wanted.
Thanks!
