In advance thanks for any and all help. I have an array that
is used to store the names of .SWF files to be loaded into another
.SWF movie. When I call the "onLoad" method it works in every
browser except IE7 ??? see the example below:
prod_a = new Array;
prod_a = 12; // number of products in array. This feature
is currently unused....
prod_a = "product1.swf";
prod_a = "product2.swf";
prod_a = "product3.swf";
prod_a = "product4.swf";
prod_a = "product5.swf";
when the file is opened it loads the flash file from slot "2"
in the array into the "loader_mc" EXCEPT IT DOESNT WORK IN IE 7????
any ideas or help would be great! Does IE7 handle "onLoad"
different? Did I make an error?
Not sure if this is your problem, but one thing that IE7
definitely does differently is to require a click to make flash
files start. There are many workarounds, including one that comes

Thanks Sly one, but that is not the problem, I currentl have
a Java work around for that. I have tried a few different solutions
for the " Click to make active" problem. I found that none of them
made a difference.
I have resorted to a "messy" but effective fix. - the
elements I was hainvg problems with were dynamically loading text
and images. I got around the problem by placing the images and text
that was supposed to load "onLoad" , in the boxes as _mc objects.
this way the images were allready there and did not need to be
The only two problems with this is
A) users of Firefox, and Safari (incl others) will see the
screen "refresh" the picture when it loads. and
B) the file size was 35kb larger.
Thanks for the help all, the final is good enough for
