Hey,

I have the following code in Flash attached to a button...

var address = _root.BENCB.Main.BEN_MAIN.Options.EmailPage.text;
getURL("javascript:GoEmail('"+address+"')");

which leads to...

function GoEmail(address) {
window.document.getElementById("WorldLayer").style.left = "151.3";
window.document.getElementById("WorldLayer").style.top = "162.3";
window.document.getElementById("WorldFrame").src = address;
window.document.getElementById("WorldLayer").style.visibility = "visible";
}

and when run in the html i get an error complaining that an "object expected."

any thoughts as to why it isn't liking this procedure?

thanks.

If you put:

alert("Address: ["+address+"]");

in GoEmail, what does it say?

I just want to see what kind of value is being passed to it

ugh, and now it is suddenly not giving me the object error... no idea what changed in terms of getting passed in there, but now it is happy.
