Trying to call MM_showHideLayers on container HTML page from Flash

I'm designing a site that is mostly in Flash, but I would
like to show some content by changing the visibility of a layer on
the HTML page that contains the swf file. I have tried
on (press)
{ExternalInterface.call("MM_showHideLayers",'testerbox','show');
and
on (press)
{ExternalInterface.call("MM_showHideLayers('testerbox','','show')");
and I have tried
on (press)
{getURL("javascript:MM_showHideLayers('testerbox','','show')");
My HTML page code is below. Can anyone tell me what I am
doing wrong and point me in the right direction? Can this be done?
Is there a better way to display large amounts of highly formatted,
dynamic content from within Flash without loading a new page or
resorting to a pop-up window? I really want it to look and feel
like it is all part of the same page, and I need more tags than I
can use in a Flash textbox. Thanks in advance :-)

Hi, did you get a solution to this problem, i am having a similar issue with the MM_showhidelayers not working in IE6, it works fine in IE8?
the code im using on a flash button is:
on (press) {
import flash.external.ExternalInterface;
ExternalInterface.call("MM_showHideLayers('menu','','show','menu_back','','show' )");
Thanks
Gary

  • How to extract HTML page from the internet

    i am new to java, i wish to know how to extract Html page from the internet and also how to identify the differences between the images and text information?

    You can create a java.net.URL that points to the file you want to "extract" and read the HTML code (or what ever that file contains) from there using the inputstream given by URL.openStream().
    The difference between images and text... well, images are embedded in html using the img-tag. example: <IMG src="http://forum.java.sun.com/images/reply.gif" alt="Reply">. Attributes width, height, alt are sometimes left out and there may or may not be quotes around the values and everything is case insensitive... you'll be having hard time trying to parse the input so I'd suggest using existing parsers.
    What are you trying to do anyway? You can load a URL directly to a JTextEditorPane with the setPage(URL page) method...

  • External html page into flash

    how to load external html page into flash? (AS3)

    You cannot load an html page into Flash, though you can try to load the html code that it contains into a textfield.  Flash supports only a very limited number of html tags, so it is highly likely you won't get what you are after if you are reading an html file that hasn't been edited for Flash specifically.  Just look up the TextField.htmlText property in the AS3 help documents and it lists the html tags that are supported. 
    For AS3 you need to look into the URLLoader class as far as loadng an extrernal text file goes.

  • Loading Image from HTML page into Flash component

    Ok, after doing much research on the internet, I am pretty
    sure you have to be a Flash and Actionscripting Jedi in order to
    solve this issue. Here we go:
    I have created an HTML page using PHP and MySql that displays
    image thumbnails. When a user chooses and clicks on one of the
    thumbnails, I want the larger image to be loaded into my swf. It is
    a jigsaw puzzle component I picked up here: www.crifano.com. Here
    is the puzzle on my page with an image manually inserted using
    Flash 8 (Note: This is only working in Internet Explorer right now,
    for whatever reason):
    http://premieretans.com/puzzle/jigsaw.php.
    I want the image on this page to be chosen by the user from a
    number of images that are populated on a regular PHP/HTML page from
    a MySql database. What is the best way to go about this?
    Thanks so much for the help on this matter. I know I am not
    the only person who has run into this dilemma, so I hope your
    knowledge will save others with a similar problem the hours I have
    spent on this issue myself. Thank you!

    Hi,
    There's no direct support for this. But you could implement
    drag and drop the way you normally would in javascript. Except
    here, on mouseUp over a div encapsulating the object or embed tag
    (the flash object), you'll need to make a call into actionscript
    from javascript indicating that a drag and drop happened.
    For more info, see
    how
    to drag and drop using javascript and
    actionscript
    and javascript communication

    What do you mean html layers? You can call JavaScript on the

  • Open HTML page from the stage

    How can I open a HTML page by pressing a button on the stage?
    I've created a rollover button and I'm trying to make it open
    an existing html page from the local disk (not an internet URL).
    But I can't make it open with Lingo or behaviour.
    Please help.
    Thanks a lot.
    Gideon.

    goToNetPage "
    http://somewhere.html" is the
    typical form for a page on
    the web, director must use the address format the system's
    browser uses
    for local files, this is somewhat platform dependant, a
    practical
    aproach is to open the file in question from within your
    browser then
    copy and paste the displayed address into your lingo code.
    Some report the goToNetPage counterpart provided by the
    buddyAPI xtra
    works more reliably, the xtra can be used for free if limited
    to a
    couple of functions.
    An alternate approach buddyAPI can use is to have the browser
    directly
    access the html file as if it were double clicked in the file
    manager
    using the same form commonly used to open PDF files with
    acrobat.
    (sorry I don't have example code handy)

  • Referencing static html pages from jsps...

              Hi,
              This is probably a very simple thing to solve, but I'm having problems with referencing
              html pages from jsps under Weblogic.
              I get Error 404 - not found, whenever I try something like this in a JSP...
              <frame name="title" src="title.html" scrolling=no>
              The title.html file has definitely been copied into my ear file, and yet it isn't
              found. I can solve the problem by turning title.html into a jsp and registering
              it in web.xml. But this seems like serious overkill with static content!!
              Am I missing something really simple here?
              

              I've worked it out - directory mistake...
