I have the following code in an xml file which feeds into a flash website. The url is accessed via the flash site from the xml file. The page opens in a separate windws but there is NO RESIZING. Please can someone put me right:

<pageText><![CDATA[
<a href="http://www.microsoft.com" target='_blank'><u>
Linkedin
</u></a>
]]></pageText>

I have tried the following which opens the window but it DOESN'T resize it:

<pageText><![CDATA[
<a href="http://www.microsoft.com" target="popup" onclick="window.open('http://www.microsoft.com', 'popup', 'width=300,height=150'); return false"><u>
Alternative Web Site popup
</u></a>
]]></pageText>

Feeds into the flash how? Flash normally does a navigateToURL and does not render an HTML link as html

The flash site references an xml file. I alter various text and url parameters by editing this xml file. These changes are then actioned by the flash site

However flash does not render html onto a page so we need more information as to how the xml is transformed.

What is the flash app you are using?

I have a flash website in flash cs3 professional. This flash site references an xml file with the url links (above). Should I be looking in the flash file to solve this ?

Yes. If the flash is reading the XML and creating browser instructions, I would like to know how

I am still unclear about how the url is being hadnled. I can create as many url's in the xml file as I want and they will be accessed by the flash site. Doesn't that mean that the url is being controlled by the xml file, not the flash ?

Sure but flash has its own way of navigating and you want the flash to call a javascript that will open a sized window. Unless you put such a script in the html where the flash also lives you will not get a sized window. I am not a flash specialist but I doubt flash can open such a window without help

Is it not possible to embed a script or function in the xml file which will resize the window - I can't find one which will do the job

Not IN the flash as far as I know but in the page and the flash can call it.

1: A "C" grade is not acceptable. Request a delete instead HOWEVER:
2: Some questions have an unpleasant answer. From what you have told/shown me so far the answer is not possible. It is a valid answer. You may not like to hear it, but you should not shoot the messenger!

I had no intention of "shooting the messenger". Would a B grade be acceptable?
If so, how do I delete and regrade ?

Yes a "B" would be better, if you accept it is not possible to do what you want.

I unaccepted so you can choose a comment to grade

It looks as if the question I was asking was not possible. I have now added the relevant links into buttons in the flash site itself rather than try to use xml links and this works ok.
