To start with, here is the site that I am working on...
After hours of work, I was finally able to get a Flash animation in one frame to change after you click on a button in a separate .swf in a different (html) frame. That is, I got it to work in IE. However, it doesn't work in Netscape. I asked our programmer here at HomeVisit.com, and he said that maybe I should change the syntax from ...
var titlecmd = InternetExplorer ? parent.title.titlecmd : parent.title.document.embeds;
to something like...
var titlecmd = InternetExplorer ? parent.frames['topbanner'].titlecmd : parent.frames['topbanner'].document.embeds;
... because 1) Netscape likes ....frames['framename']. ...better then parent.framename.variable ... and 2) he recommended that I not use "title" as a name for my frame because that might be a word that Netscape puts aside for other purposes. However, it didn't work.
Now I remember coming across one of Macromedia's sites that describes this very thing. I came across it in my quest the other night, searching through threads and user groups. However, I can't find it again. Forgot to bookmark it. It had a special note on Netscape issues and the syntax you should use to solve this.
Does this sound familiar and can anyone help me? Or am I doomed to make a million separate framesets with a million separate .swf files.
