Subject: FLASH: FS Command in Frame 1?
From: Stephen Ingrum
Date: Fri, 21 Jan 2000 20:53:01 GMT

I can't seem to get a FS Command to work in frame 1.
The work around was to put the Command in frame 2-
which works MOST of the time, but not always over a dial-up connection.

in frame 1:
FS Command ("alert", "This is frame 1")

in frame 2:
FS Command ("alert", "This is frame 2")

I only get the second alert panel- even local.
If I insert a frame (shifting 1 to 2, etc...), I get both panels.

This got me worrying about exactly WHEN the FS Command is available.
Do I need to hold my swf file until the browser *knows* that the FS Command
is ready?

Below is my HTML.

<BODY bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
var InternetExplorer = navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft") != -1;
// Handle all the the FSCommand messages in a Flash movie
function test_DoFSCommand(command, args) {
var testObj = InternetExplorer ? test : document.test;
if (command=="alert"){
// Hook for Internet Explorer
if (navigator.appName && navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft") != -1 &&
navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Windows") != -1 &&

navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Windows 3.1") == -1) {
document.write('<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=VBScript\> \n');
document.write('on error resume next \n');
document.write('Sub test_FSCommand(ByVal command, ByVal args)\n');
document.write(' call test_DoFSCommand(command, args)\n');
document.write('end sub\n');
document.write('</SCRIPT\> \n');
