    Question lightbox flash integration

    Hi guys,

    I want to load a lightbox gallery from within a flash .swf i no its possible because iv seen it done many times, and iv tried every tutorial on the net, most of which say the same thing, which I have done and it still doesnt work.

    So far I have created a javascript delegate which turns the flash command getURL into an anchor tag containing a rel="" attribute. Here is my javascript:

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function LightboxDelegate(url,caption) {
    var objLink = document.createElement('a');
    objLink.setAttribute('href',url);
    objLink.setAttribute('rel','lightbox');
    objLink.setAttribute('title',caption);
    Lightbox.prototype.start(objLink);
    }
    </script>
    I have then used a flash button to call the javascript function, in theory this should load my lightbox, however all that happens is the flash swf disappears and no lightbox overlay or image appears. I no that fksh objects do disappear when lightbox loads, however mine doesnt load. My ActionScipt on the flash button is as so:

    Actionscript Code:
    on (release)
     {getURL("javascript:LightboxDelegate('1.jpg','caption1')", "_self")
    }

    If anyone has any ideas what im doing wrong or if iv missed anything obvious I would really appreciate it!!

    Mike
