Here is my HTML code:

<html>
     <head>
     </head>
<script language="javascript">
     function openVideo(){
     document.myapplet.displayURL("http://www.google.com");
     }
</script>
<body>
<a href="" onClick="openVideo();"> open video </a> <br>

<script language="javascript">
document.write("<APPLET CODE=\"com.package.MyApplet\" NAME=\"myapplet\" WIDTH = \""+width+"\" HEIGHT =
\""+height+"\" ARCHIVE = \"code.jar\" MAYSCRIPT>");
document.write("</APPLET>");
</script>

</body>

My Applet has a public function:
public void displayURL(String url);
However when I run this page, I get an error:"Object doesn't support this property or method". The line cause this error is:
document.myapplet.displayURL("http://www.google.com");
I'm using IE 6.0.2600.
I tried <Object ID=...> but the same thing happens.

I removed some variables for you to easier to read, so you might wonder what is width and height.
width=640;
height=480;

I checked again and found out that after my applet is processed by DashO, the function is renamed. I uncheck the renaming for that function and now the javascript can call that function.
I accept third's comment because after I got the applet from the site and after stripping all the redundant code, I have a version that works. It proves that my code is ok and the problem must be somewhere else.

actually, i haven't got a clue on your problem and accidentally i found this page. it came to my mind that the problem might come on tha java code itself but i wasn't sure so i just directed you to the link for you to find out. ;-)
