This may be very basic to some but here goes -

I am using Flash MX to create a website with several different swf’s that open independently in there own windows but as an alternative to using the x button I want to create a close window button on the page which will well close the window.
Is this a Actionscript? or Javascript? issue.
What is the best way to do this?

here is a link to the main window then links to the individual pieces that open and then I need to close with the button!

use this as your link:




It works - although is there anyway to not have it bring up the alert box saying “The Web page you are viewing is trying to close the window”
with YES NO buttons?

I think this will work…Lostinbeta did this bit of code for me…=) thanks again Lostinbeta:P

put this in your < head>

< object id=closeWin type=“application/x-oleobject” classid=“clsid:adb880a6-d8ff-11cf-9377-00aa003b7a11”>
< param name=“Command” value=“Close”>
< /object>

(take out spaces after < )


Yes you are right about that part rev.

But to close the window, I believe you need to add this script to the button(as well as have the script rev provided in your HTML page)…

on(release) {

Thank you both very much - that is exactly what I was after!

I swear this forum and all the help that is available from great scripters, designers, and everyone else saves an enormous amount of time and energy.

Again I appreciate it all very much!
