Hello all,

I created a basic flash text animation (swf) to be used as an intro on the index DW page. I want this intro to play and then open another DW page and close the index page. Question? Should I add this "getURL" code to the Flash animation or should the trigger code be added on the index DW page. I'm confused where or if the "getURL" is the correct usage.

Any help would be great.

I want this intro to play and then open another DW page and close the index page.

if you try and close your opener or parent window with a child window then your browser will complain

So the best thing would be to ise getURL and don't use the window variable (it will then open in the same window by default)

Thanks guys for the comments......points well taken. But what triggers DW to go to that second page AFTER the animation plays on the index page. If I insert the the GetURL behavior to the BODY of the index, it just advances me to the second page without playing the animation on the index. Can you explain further.

Thanks a million!

getURL is actionsscript within Flash, not DW :)
