The getURL("", "traffic");

does work in Flash 8 but you have to publish to the web. If you test it locally it opens a new window. :D

Sure, In your HTML give your Iframe a name like,
Code: [ Select ]
<iframe src="defaultPage.html" name="frameName"></iframe>

Then just target that frame with your button in flash with getURL() like so,
Code: [ Select ]
button.onPress = function(){
   getURL("pageToLoad.html", "frameName");
  1. button.onPress = function(){
  2.    getURL("pageToLoad.html", "frameName");
  3. }

Of course replace pageToLoad.html with your page & frameName with the name of your Iframe. :)

I am having multiple iframes in my home page. The target framename works fine in opera and firefox, but while using IE8, target page doesn't get opened target iframe in same window ,instead its open in new window.

Is there any alternative to open in target page in target frame in same window.
