ActionScript 2.0 :: If Function In Javascript, Variable Passed To Flash?
Basically I want Javascript to pass a variable to Flash according to resolution. I realize my syntax might be off, but something like:

HTML Code:
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
if (screen.width <= 800) {
expand = "false";


Trouble is, I'm not sure what to do from here. I don't know exactly what I need to put in the <param> and <embed> tags, and how Flash would detect if the variable was true or not.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Flash Variable To HTML Javascript Function?
I have a flash SWF that passes a variable as a parameter to a javascript function in my HTML page. Somehow I need to put that value of that parameter into a global variable I can use outside the html javascript function that actually receives it from the SWF function that passes it. Ultimately I will store that value in a hidden form field in the HTML so I can reuse it elsewhere.

Using an alert box, I can see my desired variable data is being passed by the AS2 function but I can't figure out a way to access it from outside the javascript function. Here's a screen print of the alert and what I see when I try to reference it outside the function. Here is a link to a screen pic that demonstrates that

This is a code snippet that starts with the javascript function that receives the variable. YES, I know the"mailLink = str" is not valid. It just demonstrates how off the mark I am.

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
var mailLink = null;
function callJavascript(str) {

Php :: Calling A Page With MySQL Query From Javascript Function Then Returning Results To Another Javascript Function
I am refactoring some code. I have a PHP page that contains a MySQL query and stores the result in a PHP variable $my_result. This result is then echoed to a Flash SWF during embedding with SWFObject. I now want to call this PHP page that makes the query from a javascript function like so - one change I have made to the PHP is that instead of storing the result in a variable $my_result I am echoing the result. Javascript function to call the PHP page and make the database query

ActionScript 2.0 :: Flash's Own GetURL-with-javascript Not Working?
I'm trying to use getURL to open a new window that will have a specified size.I downloaded Macromedia's own tutorial/sample code for how to do this using javascript and cannot get it to work.

Here's their code:

on (release) {
getURL("javascript:openNewWindow('','thewin','height=400,width=400 ,toolbar=no,scr ollbars=yes') ");


Nothing happens when I click their button. I tried changing the target, still nothing. I also tried it in Safari and in Firefox with FF's popup blocker turned off. Nothing.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Resizing Browser Window On GetURL - Not Using JavaScript
I'm working on a kind of coverflow layout and I'm using an XML file to house my links and information about those links. in my ActionScript, I'm using getURL to point to the link the user clicks and open the link in a new window using the following script:

getURL(infostruc[current - 1].artLink, "_blank");

I need to have the new window open up to a specific size (1014x714), but I'm not sure how to write the AS for this kind of action since I'm calling the link from an external file.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Disable GetURL Javascript Calls When Publishing?
Is there a way to tell Flash to ignore getURL javascript calls when testing? It's highly annoying to hit control + enter and then have a damn browser window pop-up every single time.I'm woring on a site that has javascript calls to Google Analytics to track nearly every action. This is not by my choice but by the choice of a client. Typically the tracking gets added last but in this case, that was for phase I launch of the site and now I'm onto phase II.I could go through & comment out all the getURL javascript calls until the sites ready but I'm hoping theres another way.

ActionScript 2.0 :: GetUrl With Javascript Breaks When Publishing For Flash Player 8
I want to use getUrl to display a javascript alert. I've found an example that works perfectly, by using getUrl("javascript:alert('hello world')"); But that example is published for Flash Player 6, and the rest of my movie requires FP8. And if I go to publish settings, and select Flash Player 8 as target, the javascript is no longer executed.

It's not about the getUrl changes in Flash Player 9, I've also tested with Flash Player 8. If you want to try for yourself, the example I'm talking about is from [URL]..

ActionScript 2.0 :: Incorporate A Variable Into A GetURL?
how to incorporate a variable into a getURL like so -

getURL ("'I want to insert a variable HERE','','width=600,height=500,left=0,top=0,toolbar=No ,location=No,scrollbars=No,status=No,resizable=No, fullscreen=No'); NewWindow.focus(); void(0); return false;");

I want to be able to generate a new window that just loads into it an image that's in the sites directory. I know it can be done in javascript, cause this code works in a html page

<a href="" " onclick="'#fullSiteTextImage#/#uploadTextImageDirectory#/large_#strTextImageImage#','', 'width=600,height=500,noscrollbars'); return false;>

The green bit is a CFM variable, which contains something like flash/flash_images/image.jpg

So how can I do this from flash? I KNOW it can be done. It must be possible, someone please help me. The thing that seems to stuff it up to me is the fact that I have to enclose the getURLs URL parameter in quotes, so flash doesnt evaluate the variable.

Javascript 3 :: Can A JavaScript Function Detect Which Flash DOM Object Called It
Here's the challenge: I have a Flash movie which will be embedded in a page using an unknown DOM ID that I want to be able to identify/store for callback in a JS function. My ideal user flow would be: User clicks button in Flash. Flash pauses any animations / video / sounds / etc. Flash calls an injected JS function to display a page-covering overlay experience. When user closes overlay experience, a callback method on the Flash object is called. Flash resumes playback.

The problem is, when AS3 uses the"functionName", args...) method, there doesn't seem to be a DOM event triggered, and thus it is impossible to tell which object called a JS function, so having a "registerMe()" function doesn't seem to work. Basically, the injected JS function has no way to determine which DOM object to call, because the ID of the Flash object is unknown.

Javascript :: Flash - Call A Javascript Function From An Embedded .swf File
I'd like to call a javascript function from an embedded .swf file. Specifically, I'd like to call a function in one of my externally linked javascript files from within: function loadTrack(){


which is in an .as file which I assume somehow becomes the swf file. How would I go about this and 're-compile' the .as file?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Cannot Add GetURL Function To Button?
I'm trying to add a simple getURL script to a simple text button-- should be really simple, right? But when I select the instance of the button on the stage it says the current selection cannot have actions applied to it. This, despite the fact that I am able to open an old .fla that has the same type of button and it does have a getURL action applied. What gives?
Flash version 9.0 (CS3 Professional)
