Can Flash Project weblink open web page in same window?
on Jan 12, 2010 at 3:48:36 am

I'm using Adobe Encore CS4 to create a flash menu system, where one of my menus is replaced by a web site.

The goal is to have a flow such that:

Menu 1.
<User Clicks Item #1>
Timeline plays
user is forwarded to a website

I have implemented this as follows:

Menu 1.
Button 1 --> Timeline --> Menu 2

on menu 2, I set the description to:
<weblink href="webpage.html">

as suggested in the manual.

This works, apart from the fact that after the timeline ends, the flash movie goes black, and a new window is opened with webpage.html (which is blocked by popup blockers unless specifically allowed).

What I would like is for webpage.html to be opened in the same window, so that the flash movie is no longer visible.

I have tried modifying the description field to
<weblink href="webpage.html" target="_self">
but it doesn't help. In the generated AuthoredContent.xml, I've tried changing the item:
<Action type='Link' url='webpage.html'>
<Action type='Link' url='webpage.html' target='_self'>
to no avail. I can't seem to find any documentation on these fields.

Is anyone able to help?
Thanks in advance!
