I have a button in flash that i want to link to an HTML anchor. My swf is 1125 px high and when you click on this button i want it to move the page to the top of the window without reloading the page.

i have tried:

on (press) {
      getURL("javascript:window.location.href=\"#top\"");
}

which kinda works in safari but it never stops loading the page and it freezes up, and tyhis doesnt work in firefox

i have also tried:

on (press) {
      getURL("#top"");
}

which reloads the page

Thanks

Peter

Try this.

In your documents <head> section:

<script language="JavaScript">
function newWin(url, name, options)
{
      return window.open(url, name, options);
}
</script>


then in flash:

on (press) {
      getURL("javascript:openNewWindow('page.html#top','_parent')");
}

My apologies, I hadn't fully edited the code before posting (need an edit..)

use the following:


In your documents <head> section:

<script language="JavaScript">
function newWin(url, name, options)
{
      return window.open(url, name, options);
}
</script>


then in flash:

on (press) {
      getURL("javascript:newWin('page.html#top','_parent')");
}

i had made a mistake in my last post. I pasted the actionscript you gave me on the wrong button. I redid and retested. It works sort of, but it reloads the whole page so now i am back at the home page.

you can test here

Try changing it to:

on (press)
{
      getURL('javascript:self.scrollTo(0, 0)');
}

which works.  http://scriptgod.com/anchortest.html  (scroll to the very bottom click either "Anchor" or "Test")
