i have been trying in vain to recreate various examples that
spawn popup windows. i have been certain to follow instructions
carefully in each example (from both livedocs and the forums and
other sites)...copying and pasting the code where applicable. yet,
nothing works. everytime i am greeted with a Type Mismatch error
when I compile. i have seen threads on discussion boards where a
solution was posted that apparantly worked for everyone else...but
not me. at this point, all i want to do is spawn a pop up window
that i can control the content, title, size and placement with AS.
i'm using flash 8 on windoze xp pro.
actually, that is one of the threads i was referring to when
i said that i found info from other locations that didnt work.
but wait...theres more...
after posting yesterday i discovered that the issue is
related to my desktop for some weird reason. the following code
works fine on my laptop but not on my desktop. both machines have
the same OS...the same version and copy of Flash (from the same
disc no less) and the same configuration. yet, the laptop produces
the desired result while the desktop gives me a type mismatch error
when i compile. i havent had time to look into it further...i
simply finished development on the laptop and copied the final SWFs
to the network. yet its still a bit troubling. here is the code...
