    transfering variables --- HELPPPP

    <SCRIPT language=javascript>

    var InternetExplorer = navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft") != -1;
    var theMovie = InternetExplorer ? window.ourMovie : window.document.ourMovie;

    WM_setCookie('cookie', 'true');
    var beenhere = WM_readCookie('cookie');

    if (beenhere == "true") {
    theMovie.SetVariable("switch", "true");
    }

    </script>

    <BODY bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
    <OBJECT classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
    codebase="http://active.macromedia.com/flash2/cabs/swflash.cab#version=4,0,0,0" ID=ourMovie WIDTH=100% HEIGHT=100%>
    <PARAM NAME=Movie VALUE="intro.swf">
    <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
    <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF>
    <EMBED NAME="ourMovie" src="intro.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF WIDTH=100% HEIGHT =100% TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></EMBED>
    </OBJECT>

    ----------------------------

    This is giving me an error ... "'theMovie' is not an object"
    This is also giving me a headache but I cant figure it out ... its probably something simple ....

    Thanx

    Not that I know what I am talking about, but
    I'm going to guess!

    After looking at a few HTML pages with Flash content.
    None of them had anything between
    <EMBED NAME= and src="intro.swf"

    This is your statement:
    <EMBED NAME="ourMovie" src="intro.swf"

    and I think, it should look like:
    <EMBED src="intro.swf"

    Let me know if it is a good or bad guess!!!

    Magister, good guess, but the Embed NAME tag needs to be added so Netscape can control the SWF object with JS.

    lebplaya,
    I've seen browser-specific code like yours around, but never got it to work for me. I found something simpler on the mothership:
    http://www.macromedia.com/support/fl..._variables.htm
    (scroll to the bottom)

    This code works in both browsers. The crux is:
    function sendVar() {
    window.document.themovie.SetVariable("varname", "value");
    }


    Make sure you put swLiveConnect=true in the EMBED tag. For an example, see:
