Hi everyone I've been a little frustrated with some other boards (not going to name names) So I went searching and this one seems to be about 10 times more helpful then most. I hate for my first post to be about a problem but this one is just driving me crazy!

here goes

I have a main movie clip that loads another one(nests another) using loadmovie. This movie has a link on it to open up a new javascript window with the normal method described on the Macromedia site

I place this in my html

Code: [ Select ]
<script language="JavaScript">
function openNewWindow(URLtoOpen, windowName, windowFeatures) {, windowName, windowFeatures); }
  1. <script language="JavaScript">
  2. function openNewWindow(URLtoOpen, windowName, windowFeatures) {
  3., windowName, windowFeatures); }
  4. </script>

and then call it from the flash like so

Code: [ Select ]

Now this works perfectly the first time you load the movieclip into the main timeline but if I "close it"(meaning go to a part in the maintimline where it isn't there) or even unload it through action script as soon as I load it and try to click on the link again it makes the page go white and puts the
javascript penNewWindow('plot_magnetic.htm','plotwindow','600','450')
in the url line of the browser.

Anyone encountered this before?? anyone with any ideas!??

Well as most fixes tend to be this one is really dumb!!!

There were two frames in the maintimeline that had the Named anchor option turned on. when I shut them off it all worked prefectly I don't understand it but it all worked.

Thanks to all who read and wasted anytime even thinking about this one!

Brian99_1 - who is a little embarassed at the simplicity of this fix :oops:
