Link in dynamic textfield to jump to section of same textfield

Howdy all,

I know you’ve all seen this before - you are on a website and you click a link and you stay on the same page but jump down to a different section of the page. Like an FAQ page or something where all the questions are listed above but you click on one and jumps down to the answer below.

Is it possible to do this in a dynamic (scrollable) textfield with externally loaded text files in Flash? I don’t have DW and I know that there are limited html tags available but if anyone knows an easy way to do this please let me know!

thanks! :smiley:

I’ve seen 2ANET do this. They use PHP and Frames. But about the flash, I’m not too sure.

:smiley: Thanks Sharif! 2ANET seems to be able to do ANYTHING. Wish I had that kind of knowledge . . .

Anyone else have an idea if this is even possible?

I dont think thats possible.

:frowning: Yeah, that’s what I thought. So how is it done normally (like in the FAQ example)? With html?

With flash it is possible. I just doubt it is possible using a notepad.

You can use anchors in html.

Hey that’s exactly what I was looking for! I’m not sure if Flash will recognize those tags but i will look into it and let you know if it worked. :thumb:

Im pretty sure flash doesnt recognize those tags. :sigh:
