Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,

Thread: loading an html PAGE in flash

  1. #1

    loading an html PAGE in flash

    i know you can use basic tags in textboxes but i want to know how you can load an entire web page into flash. the website for C&C Generals has a news section that is actually an entire HTML document within the flash movie, no HTML frames or anything. the HMTL document is in the flash movie. anyone know how to do that?

    Well the link you provided doesn't work and to my knowledge, loading an entire HTML page into flash isn't possible so if you can fix the link, I would like to see this site for myself to see what they did.

    no it doesnt

    You cant put entire HTML pages in Flash like that. What you can do is layout the page IN FLASH as to make it appear like a page would in HTML. HTML is a layout markup language. Flash lets you design layouts. That being the case, you can do anything in Flash that you can do in HTML, and more. Its just a matter of doing it there.

    the link works for me, electrongeek. :O you could try this one.

    did you look at the generals site? what you mean is that you can make a web page and then put flash movies around it to make it look like the thing is in the movie, right? well in the generals site when i clicked on 'settings' it highlighted the entire screen, and if it was a bunch of smaller flash movies it should only hilight a small portion of the screen, so i concluded that they had to have found some way to load hmtl in there.

    i just started with flash a few weeks ago so i can't really explain how they did it.

    EDIT: after looking at the page for a while i found that the html window floats above the flash movie (i clicked on settings near the edge of the window and the html portion overlapped the settings dialog box). i guess they used CSS and position to do this. it would be nice if you could simply tell flash to load an html file in a textbox or something though.
