Creating the pop-up window

Launching a popup window from Flash, has never been so easy, and it can all be done without having to add any javascript to the HTML body.

1- add the code below in the first frame of your move:

//Import the ExternalInterface class
import flash.external.ExternalInterface;

//open the popup window
my_Button.onPress = function() {"","YourPage.html","win","height=200,width=300,toolbar=no,scrollbars=yes");

2- Publish your move pressing Ctrl+F12 for PC or Cmd+F12 for MAC. Now open the HTML page created by Flash in a HTML editor or text editor such Dreamweaver or Textedit, etc.

3- Find the world allowScriptAccess , it appears 3 times in your HTML page. Now change it from sameDomain to always.

4- It is done! Now just open your HTML page in any Browser and see if it works. I have successfully tested it on IE6, Firefox 2.0, Safari 2.0 and Safari 3.0.

PS: remenber every time you publish your move from Flash using Ctrl+F12 for PC or Cmd+F12 for MAC you overwrite the HTML page, so you have to do steps 3 and 4 again.

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
