I am still working on this HTML5 canvas portfolio.  I want to pop a new window or tab to show some HTML and CSS work examples.  I'm able to open HTTP links, but is there any way to load a LOCAL html file in a new browser or window?

Is it possible to open a new html above the main one without opening a new tab?
Would it be like opening a sequel without closing the first one?

do you want to open a new browser window (which is pretty much opening a new tab)?

 

otherwise, i can't think of any way to concurrently open two html files other than using iframes (addendum: or load it.)

I would like to open another game in sequence in the same tab and not in another, it would be 1 html and ends up opening another html without a new tab in it. Has as?

If not, would I have to play 2 games in a row in the same club?

you could load another html file, but i'm not sure why you would do that if you haven't already created that html.

the other html would appear over (if that's what you want), the current html.  but if they're both created by animate, you have all sorts of problems with which to contend.

 

why not do it the easy way and keep both games in the same project?

I understand, I'm going to do the same thing. But there will be 10 games that will be for a school website.
Hey kglad, how do I make an xml that adds points for the games and that reads through the website's html to show that the 10 games have been completed?

animate/js can read an xml, but to write to an xml you'll need a server-side file that can write (eg, php) to the xml file.

Is there something like href to use when all games are finished to get back to the site panel without having to open another window with window.open?

It's all on one screen but I need to go to the website menu. The game is made in animat and the website in sublime. Oh, I would like to do this conversation with href without opening a new tab, I just don't know how to do this in animat.

Is there a way to make the entire website using animat?

yes, animate can make websites, but if you've already put a lot of work into the website, it may make sense to keep the website and game(s) separate.

 

and you can use any javascript code/library you like in animate.

Do you have an example: I have never seen a website through animat and then I would browse the pages without opening tabs. But for example, I have more than 15 gigs of HTML games, it would really work.
