Have Flash Remember Frame For When Page Reloads
Posted on 2004-10-27
I have an image rotator on my left nav that I did manually with tweens, each image is linkable to different web pages. The links open in the same window using _self. Normally the movie will start over at the beginning on reload, then play to the end and loops forever back to frame 45. What I am trying to do is have the flash movie start from where it left off using some sort of cookie when the movie reloads on the next page.
Need something like this: When the link is clicked in flash, need to save current frame somehow. On the next page that loads, if recorded frame is in between of equal to:
45 - 165 - after new page loads start at 165
165 - 285 - start at 285
285 - 405 - start at 405
405 - 525 - start at 525
525 - 645 - start back at 45
What's the best way to do something like this? I'm not sold on cookies. Any help would be awesome.
