I work on a pretty shoddy Windows machine at school/work , using Flash5 to do a website for one of the school's departments.

My question pertains to using FSCommands.. they work 100% the way i want them to using Windows + IE5.. but they dont work in anyOS + Netscape or MacOS + anyBrowser... i use a Mac at home.

Im using the FSCommand function to call a javascript function to open a window of certain size in the middle of the screen..

I'm goin to try to just use getURL to call the javascript, but i was wondering if FSCommands work at all for html embedded Flash mov's??

all i wanted to know is if FSCommands actually work?
this is the third request ive posted on Flashkit, and so far these boards have been totally unhelpful.
thanx for the support

Hi bloo14
FSCommands donīt work with IE4.5 and IE5.0 on Mac.
See the IE buglist at Moock:

But should work with Netscape.

Never used FSCommands the way you do, so I canīt say more, sorry.

For what you want to do you don't need to use FSCommands anyway just send javascript out of flash with a GetURL action.

Or even better get the centred popup extension from the Flash exchange.
