I notice no one has replied yet, but I'm not sure what you're seeking
myself. Are you asking how to control, from within a SWF, the default size
of a new window that the browser opens? (If so, then you'd likely want to
pass a message to the browser so its own JavaScript can size a new window,
but not all browsers listen to messages from plugins.)

Or it might be that you're showing the SWF within its own sized window, and
want to display a clicked link back in the main window. If so, this
targeting can be done right through the usual GetURL method.

But you might be seeking something else too... it's hard online when
someone describes something they've done, easier if you can ask readers
something about what we can do ourselves... an actual "how" or "what"
question tends to get best results online, sorry.
