I try to call to some javascript function from my flash document but nothing
How do i include a .jsfl file in my flash actions.

I'm trying to call to getDocumentCOM()'s properties and methods as i saw
in some samples but i always get an empty string as the result.

I don't need the javascript to be as a panel only for run time to be able
access the layers and the movie clips in my flash document.

Please help

Thanks in advance

Welcome Gil Levinson.

JSFL can only be used within the FLash IDE. JSFL commands cannot be excuted during run-time of an SWF.
the MMExecute command in actionscript can be used to run JSFL commands but are used only in swfs run in the IDE as a custom panel (WindowSWF), XMLtoUI, or timeline effect preview.

If you would like to use the dom's properties in your movie, you could run a command to fl.trace these in the output you prefer, and then copy that from the output panel and place it in your actionscript.

-hope it helps

** it's probably a type-o, but it is getDocumentDOM().

Thank you for your reply but i'm not sure i understand,

1. What do you mean that i have to work only in IDE ?
2. How do i execute a function in .jsfl file from the flash document ?
(as i worte before i get an empty string if i use MMexecute)
3. How do i run a command with fl.trace ?
4. Is it possible to access the layers and the elements in those layers
in my flash document in runtime with dom's properties?
5. Can you send me a very simple .fla file where i can see how to
call the dom's properties from a flash ?

Thank you

1. jsfl only works inside the flash editor meaning flash mx 2004 program thus at design time
2. mmexecute only works in a windowSWF, read the documentation about that
3. fl.trace is to do a trace in jsfl not run a command
4. yes!
5. i posted some examples here: http://johan.plasmapudding.com/index.php?id=196
