Bookmarking a Flash movie with Flash anchor
I was asked recently to demo some old and forgotten features of Flash. After some researching, I thought this one is worth re-visiting. Bookmarking a flash movie with flash anchor. Do you remember Flash Anchor? It was introduced quite a few versions back. Instead of labeling a frame (for a state you want to bookmark) with Frame Label, you label a frame with Flash Anchor. At the publishing setting, you also need to select the “Flash with Named Anchors” as the html template. It is that simple. No external interfaces Actionscript required. I tested it with IE7. It worked wonderfully. Unfortunately it didn’t work in FF2. Perhaps when the feature was introduced, FF wasn’t around so some tweaking of the html template would be required.
