Flash Links not working in IE or Chrome

Hi

As per title Flash links simplyy dont work in chrome or IE but they work fine in Firefox. What is the issue? Im quite confused. The flash file resides here:

http://www.dpisolutions.co.uk/ebay/mij/

The embed code is quite simple

<object height="140" width="980">
        <param name="movie" value="http://www.dpisolutions.co.uk/ebay/mij/flash/manufacturer.swf" />
        <embed src="http://www.dpisolutions.co.uk/ebay/mij/flash/manufacturer.swf"
        type="application/x-shockwave-flash" height="140" width="980" />
</object>

Open in new window


Note: I need to use full path urls for the src and value as i need to embed this into an ebay store header. Another point i have noticed is when embedding the flash file into the ebay store header and viewing it in FIREFOX the links stop working even then. This is very confusing.

The flash file contains a lot of buttons and im using the following actionscript to add the links to them

on (release) {
	getURL("http://stores.ebay.co.uk/MIJExhaust/Fiat-/_i.html?_fsub=945524018&_sid=805669578&_trksid=p4634.c0.m322", "_self", "POST");
}

Open in new window


Any help is greatly appreciated.

I know that my following suggestion doesn't clear up the confusion.  Perhaps just using the TextField.htmlText = "<a href='someURL'>clickHere</a>" would work?

This is a nice tutorial, covers the basics ( I didn't make it all the way through, it should be enough including my previous post).

I see the thumbs open the urls even in IE.
So not sure if your error still persists.

i think you need to add a new param , called AllowScriptAccess, like in this example (it is in both param name and in the embed part):

<object height="140" width="980">
        <param name="movie" value="http://www.dpisolutions.co.uk/ebay/mij/flash/manufacturer.swf" />
        <param name="AllowScriptAccess" value="always" >
        <embed src="http://www.dpisolutions.co.uk/ebay/mij/flash/manufacturer.swf"
        type="application/x-shockwave-flash" height="140" width="980" AllowScriptAccess="always"  />
</object>
