ive used flash many times for site navigation with framesets..

using the get url action, are you correctly using the "target"? .... in
flash 5, you use get url, then fill in the url you want, then in the
"window" box below it, fill in the name of the frameset that you want to
target.

Subject: FLASH: MSIE-flash target problem in framesets



We've been unable to resolve a very frustrating problem with MS Internet
Explorer, which does not target the correct frame in a frameset when getURL
is executed from a .swf file intended for site-navigation. Instead of
targeting the proper frame, it defaults to _self or sometimes targets _blank
(new browser window) with the desired html doc.

Macromedia Tech Note ID: 12791 recognizes this problem, but offers no
solution, other than recommending the most basic of trouble-shooting advice,
like checking spelling of urls, etc..

We feel we've tried everything under the sun, including modifying frameset
structure, changing the name of frames to be targeted, exporting the .swf
from Fl-5 instead of 4, etc..

Has anyone experienced this problem and discovered a fix or work-around?
We'd be delighted to hear about it! Thanks v. much!

Ben K.
