Greetings EE Gods.

Using ASP.net, I can employ this line:
<img id="product_fullimage" alt="" runat="server" />

From other images, I can change the source of the img tag on the fly using javscript:
onclick=\"",fullimage,".src='/Content/images/products/", previewimage.fullimage, "';\""

Can I do this with embedded SWF and FLVs?
<OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
WIDTH="400" HEIGHT="300"
CODEBASE="http://active.macromedia.com/flash5/cabs/swflash.cab#version=5,0,0,0">
<PARAM NAME="MOVIE" VALUE="sample.swf">
<PARAM NAME="PLAY" VALUE="true">
<PARAM NAME="QUALITY" VALUE="best">
<PARAM NAME="LOOP" VALUE="true">
<EMBED SRC="sample.swf" WIDTH="400" HEIGHT="300" PLAY="true" LOOP="true" QUALITY="best"
PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash">
</EMBED>
</OBJECT>

Thanks.

Hello arcee123,

AFAIK changing Object param attribute dynamically using javascript is not allowed. You have to first delete the object and create a new object with new param

Here's a sample


function setFlashSrc(newSrc)
{
      var flash='<OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" CODEBASE="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" WIDTH="210" HEIGHT="210">';
      flash+='<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="'+newSrc+'"><PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>';
      flash+='<EMBED SRC="'+newSrc+'" QUALITY=high PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" ';
      flash+='TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" WIDTH="210" HEIGHT="210">';
      flash+='</EMBED>';
      flash+='</OBJECT>';
      document.getElementById("urgeo").innerHTML=flash;
}

where ever you want.
RegisterClientScripBlock will do it or attach to onclik or onload or other suitable event.
