Subject: FLASH: Controling movie from javascript: revisited
From: Sergio Santos
Date: Sat, 9 Sep 2000 04:03:31 +0100

Well, I started a thread about controlling a movie with javascript. I got it
working as I needed with IE, but something is wrong with Netscape.

For those with some patience here's the code:
(between head tags)
function update(moldeid,frame) {
var InternetExplorer = navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft") != -1;
var movie = InternetExplorer ? window.main : window.document.main;
This function works fine with IE, i can control the movie, i have the frame
12 (with javascript the first frame is 0), setting a variable in the movie
that lets me know the link went ok.
The php code that triggers the movie is:
(I have data being feed from mysql) then I do:

(Translated to html it is something like

<A HREF="javascript:update('123123','11');>description</A>)

This variable is introduced in a dinamic text field in Flash 5, works fine
in IE, in Netscape, the link appears, it's clickable, but the action
(gotoframe,setvariable) is not executed properly.

All this has php+mysql in it, but the problem is not from there, I can
assure that.

In Netscape i'm not able to get that working. I may be missing some stupid
thing, like some ' or something. I'm getting fed-up with this IE-Netscape
differences, what may I be missing here? I'm the kind of those that read all
the documentation, I spent a lot of time reading Netcenter javascript docs,
but no go...

Any javascript gurus out there with code working with netscape controlling
flash movies (Setvariable, gotoframe, etc) would help!.

Thanks a ton
