Topic: Flash in Thickbox over Flash

Hey all! I am working on a project at work that needs to display a flash object inside thickbox. There are also other flash elements on an html page that the thickbox iframe will sit over.

Everything is playing relatively nicely on Windows, but in FF and Safari on OSX there are some serious issues. In Safari, the flash in the background flickers over the iframe, but under the flash in the iframe. In FF, the flash in the iframe and the flash below the iframe won't display.

Thanks though!

Re: Flash in Thickbox over Flash

I  was wondering if there was way to trigger the popularly useful thickbox (javascript to display a lightbox-style HTML page) from a link embedded in a Flash movie? I have a website that is all Flash and want to display thickbox formatted HTML content from a text hyperlink in the movie using actionscript.

Here's an example of how the hyperlink is formatted in HTML:

<a href="ajaxLogin.htm?height=100&width=250" class="thickbox" title="Please Sign In">login</a

Is there an action script equivalent to the above?

If possible, can anyone point me in the right direction or give an example of the code:
