HTML Frame

SmartBuilder v3 or v4?

Please note that this is the help site for SmartBuilder version 3.

The SmartBuilder version 4 Documentation and Video Tutorials can be found in the Help menu in the tool, or view the v4 Help site.

This widget allows you to control URLs of other html frames that are possibly outside of SmartBuilder.

The HTML Frame object is a very unique object for when you have a SmartBuilder lesson embedded inside a larger website.  For example, a help site, where you are using frames (e.g., a frame on the left for the Table of Contents, one at the top for the header, and one in the center for the content).  The HTML Frame objects allows the SmartBuilder object to control those other frames, for example changing the Table of Contents to another section.

It was created for a specific organization, and we made it available to everyone, but chances are, most users will never have a situation that warrants using the HTML Frame object.

It has 2 methods.

setURL(url) - To change the target frame url. Internally, it calls "setFrameTarget" through the Flash interface, which takes the window path and the url.

setFramePath(path) - This is just another way to dynamically change frame path during runtime.

The object has no visiblity on the stage during runtime.
