Hi!

I have a javascript file called "show.js"
this file create a web page with document.write instructions.
I have 3 parameters, the filename (.jpg), the background and the title.

so, when I call it from a Web page, it look like this: show("image1.jpg", "ffffff", "A beautiful picture");

Now, I want to call this script from a Flash animation.  The script is in a file called show.js

How can I call the function show in this file?  Should I include my javascript in my flash movie?

Fast help would be apreciated!
Thanks
Jav

Hi.

You need to use the "GetURL" command.

Include the JS file in your HTML in the normal manner, then use this....

    GetURL('JavaScript:show("image1.jpg", "ffffff", "A beautiful picture")');

That'll do the same as running it directly from the html.

Have a look at http://www.thefade.co.uk , specifically the media page.  (It takes a while - I know :(

Click one of the photo thumbnails to view the bigger one and I think you'll see that I've done what you were trying to do.  (I included the JavaScript function in the HTML that holds the Flash - that's the only difference.)

Hope this helps,

John.
