I just took a look, didnt get it to replicate the issues.
using Firefox and FP 10
You'll be looking at 2 panels at the moment which are both part of the video. Beneath the left panel (ie the video menu), there should actually be another accordion menu.
So in effect, there should be 3 boxes from the left - an accordion menu, the video menu, and the video player...It's the accordion that has disappeared but i can't understand why...
Do they both have the same instance names or Base Class ids?
Usually youll get a compiler error if this is the case.
Hmm, a bit confused about what this is - however, both use swfobject and i can see a classid that is the same on both (maybe that's okay?)(the class id is classid=\"clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000\ )...
I'm not gettin any error though - it just doesn't appear on the page...
This is the code on the HTML page:
<div id="mainBody"> <div class="leftColumn">
<div id="flashcontent"> You need to upgrade your Flash Player</div>
var so = new SWFObject("accordion/accordion.swf", "flash", "260", "100%", "8", "#000000");
so.addVariable("xml", "data.xml?time="+new Date().getTime())
<div id="flashcontent" style= "width: 100%; height: 100%; margin: 0!important;">
var so = new SWFObject("preview.swf", "multi flash video gallery", "740", "360", "9", "#ffffff");
var args=new Object();
flahsVar = "menuID="+args["menuID"]+"&subMenuID="+args["subMenuID"]+"&flvID="+args["flvID"];
Thanks for your help!
ok, so based on your html, and based on your decription of how its supposed to work, I see nothing wrong.
Heres what I see:
When I click on the top of the left column I get a drop down with 2 buttons. Click on one of those buttons and I get more videos to chose from. Click on a thumbnail and get the video player to swap video. Is this how it is supposed to work?
your code doesnt show three swfs
What you're seeing is the second flash element - there are 2 parts of this element (a menu section and the actual player). What's missing is the first flash element which has for some reason disappeared from the page (even though it shows in the HTML). This first flash element (which is missing) is a vertical accordion drop down with 3 images.
OK I get you now. Easy fix. The <div> with preview swf is simply overlaying the <div> with accordian.swf. Try giving your divs and swfs absolute values for width. Then, move the column right div to the right in your style: <div class="rightColumn" style="margin:0 260px 0 0"> or something simliar
The first one - leftColumn - didnt disappear, its just being overlayed by rightColumn.
