    I am using flash movies in dreamweaver pages and want to navigate using Back/Fwd buttons in the flash movies to link to the dreamweaver pages.

    Is this possible is there a better solution?

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    Do you want the buttons to just link to a specific page, or do you want them to actually go into the browser's history?

    For a specific page, put this action on your button:
    on (release){
    getURL("blah.html");
    }
    (and if you want it to target a blank page, etc., put the target after the address, like getURL("blah.html", _blank)

    However, if you want to go into the browser's history, then you can just call a javascript function that you have written on the html document that the flash movie resides in.
    Then, you can write (as an action on your button)
    on(release){
    getURL("javascript:functionName(any parameters)");
    }

    I actually use that quite often, for opening smaller windows for image closeups, etc.
