View Full Version : DHTML Window Widget and embedding SWF

06-05-2007, 01:30 AM
1) Script Title: DHTML Window Widget

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex8/dhtmlwindow/index.htm

3) Describe problem: I'm trying to embed a SWF in the window that pops up using the SWFObject Javascript embed, as documented here: http://blog.deconcept.com/swfobject/

I'm calling the popup from a link in my text, and using the Ajax method, pulling it from an html file that contains only this embed/detection. So, when I type the URL in directly (the page that is called), it works fine, however when I try and pull up the window via the text link, it doesn't work. Is it not possible to use this SWFObject embed and DHTML Window Widget at the same time? Both work fine independent of each other, but put them together and it just doesn't work. Any advice?

Actually, this seems glitchy in general trying to embed a SWF. I just did it the regular way, and clicking on the flash movie makes it disappear in the Window Widget, so doesn't look like this DHTML Window Widget plays nice with Flash. Anyone else have the same experience and any workaround? Think I may be going back to regular popups, because this disappearing Flash content won't work. :(
