Looking for any help on this due to tight deadline. I have a
simple shell that load's in other swfs. If a swf that's loaded in
contains a list (for example) and you click on the list, when you
then try and load another swf into the shell both the onLoadInit
& onLoadError events are not fired. It works fine when
published and also when loaded in a simple html page in firefox.
Open the same html page in IE6 or IE7 and it breaks.
Please understand that I have done quite a lot of flash dev -
this isn't a problem with the shell - it is a definite bug with the
player in IE. Please give it a go yourselves if in doubt. I do feel
like I must be missing something though as I can't find anything
about this on the web.
I can fix the problem by setting Selection.setFocus(null)
before loading another swf. Great... except another problem with
the datagrid & list component. By writing a crude onenterframe
trace of Selection.getFocus() you can see that only on the mouseUp
event is the Selection focus set to the object. That means if you
click inside a datagrid but release the mouse outside of the
datagrid, it's Selection state is undefined (i presume) as in this
scenario, setting the Selection.setFocus(null) no longer fixes the
I'm guessing that the selection state of the datagrid is
undefined as Selection.getFocus() returns the previously selected
object and yet the datagrid with the mousedown event has a yellow
This is particularly a problem as I have implemented a
drag&drop interface using the datagrids and so there may be
many times when the user clicks on the datagrid but releases on
Many thanks in advance to anybody who takes the time to look
at this - it's causing me a bit of a headache!
