View Full Version : Cyan please HELP!! The PERFECT POPUP????

05-24-2004, 01:18 PM
Hi Guys

I'm looking to create a popup which opens a "template" html page with an image placeholder. This way you should be able to send a variable from the swf and open up the same html page each time but the image would change as you change the variable from the flash button.

Basically I have flash page containing various thumbnails and when clicked, each one will open a larger version, but I dont want to make a html page for each one so rather 'send' the filename to the html page if this is possible??

there is a similar topic at a java script forum here:


I was given this:


<title>Image viewer</title>
function loader(){
var my_pic = document.location.search.substring(1);
document.pic1.src = my_pic;

<body onload="loader()">
<img src="http://www.weav.co.uk/dj/dressing/" name="pic1">


but dont really know how to get it all to work.

This is on my button

on (press) {
// customize the window that gets opened
// 0 equals NO.
// 1 equals YES.
address = "myimage.jpg";
target_winName = "popup";
width = 300;
height = 451;
toolbar = 0;
location = 0;
directories = 0;
status = 0;
menubar = 0;
scrollbars = 0;
resizable = 0;
// sends data back to the function
openWinCentre(address, target_winName, width, height, toolbar, location, directories, status, menubar, scrollbars, resizable);

and this is on the timeline:

Movieclip.prototype.openWinCentre = function(url, winName, w, h, toolbar, location, directories, status, menubar, scrollbars, resizable) {
getURL("javascript:myWin = window.open('"+url+"','"+winName+"','"+"width="+w+",height="+h+",toolbar="+toolbar+",location="+location+",directories="+directories+",status="+status+",menubar="+menubar+",scrollbars="+scrollbars+",resizable="+resizable+",top='+((screen.height/2)-("+h/2+"))+',left='+((screen.width/2)-("+w/2+"))+'"+"')}else{myWin.focus();};void(0);");

I just basically want the swf file to decide which jpeg is to be loaded into the popup.html.

hmm, a lot going on since I checked it last.
I already knw you hated cyan
didn't know you also hate CB.

...well, I think I can live with Cy too :D

Well... It's just that I hate people calling me in the wrong name especially when they don't know me at all... That's all... (Not pointing to anybody in particular...)

If somebody who knows me call me 'stupid moron', I know he doesn't really mean it... (He'd been dead already if he really meant it... :D) But if somebody who I do not know me call me like that, then that's different story, right??? I know it is not the best way to compare it but it goes similar... :(
