    Trying to make a button to activate position fixed movie?

    War_Tool
      I just recently figured out how to use the position fixed code to make a flash movie stay on the bottom of the page even when you scroll up and down the page. However, now I want to be able to only have that movie appear when I press a button.
      For example: Somebody is looking at products on my page, when they press an "add to cart" button, then a fixed positioned flash movie showing the current cart contents pops up and floats along the bottom until they are ready to checkout.
      Is this possible? and if so how? Please help I'm a newbie!!

          A much better use of Flash would be to use Flash (or Ajax) to show your
          product list in a scrolling device, and have the cart display positioned
          statically on the page. Then this 'fixed' thing you are using will not be
          required - nor will you experience IE's reluctance to support it.
