I took a button from Flash's library and inserted following ActionScript in its
Actions panel.

on (release) {
    getURL ("KeyCodeDetector.html", parent.bottomFrame);

Here "bottomFrame" is the name of bottom frame in which loading of
"KeyCodeDetector.html" is required. The Flash button is in top frame.
When the button is clicked, the page is loaded in the top frame instead of
bottom frame.
What's the wrong with ActionScript?

Thank you,
