FSCommand stops work with innerHTML

When I dynamically include my Flash file in HTML using innerHTML, it looses its ability to communicate with the browser via FSCommand. If I use the same Flash with the standard <object>... approach it works fine.

<div id="emptyflashcontainer"></div>
<script>
var container=document.getElementById("emptyflashcontainer");
container.innerHTML="<object classid='...' codebase='...' id='...'><param name='movie' value='mymovie.swf'></object>"
</script>

Flash is loaded and played correctly but it seems all FSCommand ability FROM the Flash is lost with this approach. The browser can still communicate TO the Flash via Javascript.

I need to load this Flash after the HTML page has finished, therefore I need to use innerHTML or similar.

Just a suggestion: for reasons of compatibility, you should never use "FScommand" via browser. Use

getURL("javascript:function_name(parameters)");

instead (FScommand is not compatible with NN)

exactly, what does the flash movie do with the fscommand?

>I need to load this Flash after the HTML page has finished, therefore I need to use innerHTML or similar.

try this method:

sample: http://flash-mx.html.it/guide/swf/negatyve_javascript/lastLoaded/imagesPreloader.html
source: http://flash-mx.html.it/guide/zip/negatyve_javascript/lastLoaded.zip

the flash movie is loaded only when all the pictures of the page are loaded. works with Netscape Navigator, Internet Explorer, Mozilla.
