This tutorial explains how to open a new window from within a flash movie. It also provides all the options available as a ready reference for users who already are fully knowledgeable of how to open a new window from Flash, but Like me always forget the little specifics!

For the basis of this tutorial we will assume you have created a Flash Movie. Inside that movie you have a button that you wish to have open a new window!

The first step is to put the instance of the button onto your movie, ie by dragging it from the Library (CTRL + L) window onto the movie area.

To open a window we need to attach the commands for opening the window to the button. We do this by selecting the button then clicking the instance option from the menu or (CTRL + I)
