    CS4, AS2: Calling Lightbox from button

    I'm working on a website www.designrd.com/ayla/

    I am basically attempting to call up Lightbox 2 from the 'VIEW GALLERY' button in the swf as you can't make the whole swf a hyperlink..

    The button has this code on it
    Code:
    on(release)
    {
    getURL("javascript:show('images/image1.jpg')"); 
    }
    and within the HTML I have this code
    Code:
    <a id="dummyanchor" href="" rel="lightbox"></a>
    
    JAVASCRIPT:
    function show(url) {
    var a = document.getElementById('dummyanchor');
    a.setAttribute('href',url);
    myLightbox.start(a);
    }
    this was the best sounding solution I had found as given by 'under' on this page.

    If there are an easier/other ways of doing this I am open to suggestion, I'm essentially trying to get a button within an SWF to call up Lightbox 2

    UPDATE

    http://drupal.org/node/324365

    This has gotten me closer, it's opening up the lightbox but without any images...

    Code:
    <a href="" rel="lightbox" id="callfromflash"></a>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function openLightbox() {
    fireEvent(document.getElementById("callfromflash"),'click');
    }
    
    function fireEvent(obj,evt){
    var fireOnThis = obj;
    if( document.createEvent ) {
    var evObj = document.createEvent('MouseEvents');
    evObj.initEvent( evt, true, false );
    fireOnThis.dispatchEvent(evObj);
    } else if( document.createEventObject ) {
    fireOnThis.fireEvent('on'+evt);
    }
    }
    </script>
    
    <a href="images/1.jpg" id="callfromflash" rel="lightbox" title="GALLERY"></a>
    I have a feeling the problem is the last bit of code, not sure how that's supposed to work exactly
