    Controlling loadMovie with Javascript

    Hi Guys,

    Is there a way that you can control a flash movie using HTML and/or Javascript on the same page?

    This is the code I am currently using but I get a "_root is undefined" error.



    << <script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
    function flashLoad(){
    //alert("test");
    window.document.docContainer.loadMovie("Untitled-1.swf",_root.docFrame);
    }
    </script> >>



    there is a flash movie on the same page with an ID and NAME of docContainer.

    The fuction is actioned by an onClick event.
    When I click I get the TEST alert box but then get the undefined error.

    Does anyone know why?
    Am I able to use the loadMovie via Javascript.

    Thanks in advance
    --Neil

    try something like this,

    Code:
    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
    function flashLoad(){
        window.document.docContainer.LoadMovie(1, "Untitled-1.swf");
    }
    </script>
