Hello there

I'm not a flash bod - but does your bottom fame have an id?
"bottomFrame" hopefully :) otherwise flash will not be able to reference
it and the page will open in a new window. (Well that's what happens in

> Hello Experts,
> Some days ago, I asked a question about loading a web page in

> only one response (it's not any complain). I acted according

> Flash button:
> <ActionScript>
> on (release) {
>     getURL ("KeyCodeDetector.html", parent.bottomFrame);
> }
> </ActionScript>
> It loaded the web page in NEW window instead of bottom frame.
> Dreamweaver has a built-in system of creating Flash buttons
> in web pages. I created a Flash button with DW in top frame
> and chose the name of bottom frame in Target field (in Flash
> Button dialogue box). This button loaded the page neither in
> bottom frame nor in new window. Now I have begun to think
> that may be Flash buttons just cannot handle frames. Is my
