Pop up window in flash

i have a similar problem to zero oxygen. I used the pop up window in flash tutorial (thanks for the great tutorials) but my problem is that I have a flash animation on the saame html page with the button which launches the pop up. when i launch the pop up there’s another animation in this smaller window. this animation is slowed down by the first. I want to launch the pop up and make the html page disappear at the same time. or stop the first animation. i tried the _blank suggestion. but maybe i’m not using the code correctly? see code below; thanks for any assistance. m

on (release) {

//customize the window that gets opened
// 0 equals NO.
// 1 equals YES.
address = "gertrudestein/steinwheel.html";
target_winName = "gstein";
target= "_blank";
width = 570;
height = 415;
toolbar = 0;
location = 0;
directories = 0;
status = 0;
menubar = 0;
scrollbars = 1;
resizable = 0;
//sends data back to the function
openWinCentre(address, target_winName, width, height, toolbar, location, directories, status, menubar, scrollbars, resizable);


instead of using ‘_blank’, try using ‘_self’. That might load the pop-up into the same window. Maybe try ‘_parent’, if that doesn’t work.

thanks for advice. i’ve been away and will need to reconnect with all my Flash stuff shortly.
love the Bush on a string thingy. fantastic
