I need to generate a popup message box from a Flash movie. Currently it seems this must be done through javascript if I'd like it to actually be separate from the Flash movie. I need the popup to display a yes/no prompt and report the response back to the Flash movie. Can this be done? If so, how?

Ok, using that I can have javascript create the popup when the page loads, but how can I have Flash trigger that popup instead?
