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
