Remember last page selection - swf file

Posted on 2012-03-10

Last Modified: 2012-03-11
In my flex mobile app, I have a swf file that contains some hyperlinks. When the user clicks the hyperlinks, user is directed to the browser.

When the user returns to the app again, the swf file is loaded on page 1 as opposed to the page user left from. Similarly when the user goes from one tab to the next, instead of coming back to the same page it goes to the beginning

How do I set a global variable to keep track of which page was last viewed in the swf file?
