Double-click on the button you want to edit, and click on the Actions tab at the top of the window. Then click the + sign to bring up the actions menu, and select Get URL from the list. In the boxes to the right, first enter the URL you would like to load in the top box labeled "URL". Then in the box labeled "window" type in the name of the frame (assuming that you named your frames) you would like the referenced page to load into.

If you haven't named your frames or don't know how, just look at the html and make sure on your frame tags that you see the following:

<frame name="enter_any_name_you_want_here" src="first_url_goes_here.html">

That should do it.

here's what you do.

Say you have two movies in two frames left and right. This code will allow you to control a flash movie in other frame by clicking on the buttons in one frame.

1. in the flash movie on the left, you need to add actions to the buttons that are to control the movie on the right. the actions are:

GetURL "javascript:controlFlash(frame number)"

save, and export the movie.

2. in the HTML page for left.html, add this code right after the </title> tag:

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
function controlFlash(theFrame){
parent.frames.right.right.GoToFrame(theFrame);
}

</script>

3. in this same left.html page, add this tag to the EMBED tag. it goes after the last part "P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" and before the closing "></EMBED>":

swLiveConnect="true"

save this file and close it.

4. in the HTML for right.html, add this to the EMBED tag, right after this part "<EMBED src="right.swf"" -

name=right

5. save all the documents and
test in browser.

this should work on most browsers, with the exception of macintosh internet explorer 4.5 and below, which has limited implementation of javascript.

let me know if this works for you.
