    object doesn't support this property or method


      Hi all,

      I'm testing AS3 calling Javascript. It works in FF but not in IE8. I'm suspecting is a version problem but not sure.Can someone take a look? TIA  -s

      Here is my environment:

      OS: Win7 Pro 64bit.

      CS4 installed.

      then Flash player updated to 11.1 (no touch to the CS4 Flash installation dirs).


      Here is the AS3 code:

      import flash.external.ExternalInterface;



      function f0():Boolean {
      return true;
      function startTest():void {
      if (ExternalInterface.available) {
        try {
         ExternalInterface.addCallback("f100", f0);
        } catch (error:Error) {
         trace("An Error occurred: " + error.message + "\n");


      Here is Javascipt part:

      <script type="text/javascript">
         function ff1()   {    alert("From AS")   }
      function f101() {    window.setTimeout(f100, 2000)   } 
        function f100(){
         var a=document.getElementById("fltest");
        a.f100() // got error message here
      window.onload= f101;

      <div id="test"><object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#ve rsion=10,0,0,0" width="215" height="318" id="fltest" align="middle">
