    flash, javascript and IE

    hi - i have javascript talking with Flash. Works great in Firefox (as is always the case), but IE (all versions) has issues. Essentially i get a warning at the line of code that innerHTML starts (after the appendChild)- i had read i needed to append the child before writring innerHTML , but that still is not the trick.

    Can you take a look, and tell me what i need to tell IE? I am thinking it has to do with ActiveXObject???

    Code:
    function playVid(src){
    	var pb=document.getElementById("player");
    	var pl=document.getElementById("FLVPlayer");
    	if(pl){
    		pb.removeChild(pl);	
    	}
    	var src=src;
    	var em=document.createElement("object");
    	em.classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000";
    	em.setAttribute("codebase","http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0");
    	em.setAttribute("width","640");
    	em.setAttribute("height","490");
    	em.id="FLVPlayer"
    	pb.appendChild(em);
    	em.innerHTML="<param value=\"myPlayer.swf?contnt="+src+"\" name=\"movie\" /><param  value=\"sameDomain\" name=\"allowScriptAccess\"/>";
    	em.innerHTML+= "<param value=\"high\" name=\"quality\" /><param  value=\"noscale\" name=\"scale\"/>";
    	em.innerHTML+="<embed  src=\"myPlayer.swf?contnt="+src+"\" quality=\"high\" width=\"640\" height=\"490\" type=\"application/x-shockwave-flash\" pluginspage=\"http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer\" />";
    }

    have a look at SWFObject. It does what you want to do, and a lot more.

    yes that is interesting. i am choosing to go my own direction on this...no prewritten scripts. So far i am learning that the big hang up was the innerHTML call. So i have rewrtitten to the below. Now, i have no warnings in IE, but instead, after i click, IEseems to perform the javascript fine, but then will not play the flash movie....any more thoughts. i am sure this is an activeX issue

    Code:
    function playVid(src){
    	var pb=document.getElementById("player");
    	var pl=document.getElementById("FLVPlayer");
    	if(pl){
    		pb.removeChild(pl);	
    	}
    	var src=src;
    	var em=document.createElement("object");
    	em.setAttribute("classid","clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000");
    	em.setAttribute("codebase","http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0");
    	em.setAttribute("width","640");
    	em.setAttribute("height","490");
    	em.id="FLVPlayer"
    	var pr=document.createElement("param");
    	pr.setAttribute("name","movie");
    	pr.setAttribute("value","myPlayer.swf?contnt="+src);
    	em.appendChild(pr);
    	var pr2=document.createElement("param");
    	pr2.setAttribute("name","quality");
    	pr2.setAttribute("value","high");
    	em.appendChild(pr2);
    	var pr3=document.createElement("param");
    	pr3.setAttribute("name","allowScriptAccess");
    	pr3.setAttribute("value","sameDomain");
    	em.appendChild(pr3);
    	if(!window.ActiveXObject){
    		var embed=document.createElement("embed");
    		embed.setAttribute("src","myPlayer.swf?contnt="+src);
    		embed.setAttribute("qality","high");
    		embed.setAttribute("width","640");
    		embed.setAttribute("height","490");
    		embed.setAttribute("type","application/x-shockwave-flash");
    		em.appendChild(embed);
    	}
    	pb.appendChild(em);
    }
