  1. Hi,I've looked all over the web for an explanation on how to use the "this" operator. It's almost impossible because the word "this" is so common. The examples I found are mixed up in the authors coding and are not at all clear. Thanks,Rich J
  2. I think INGOLME has it right. I did not know that the whole page was reloaded. I'll learn CSS. The links I want to load in the right panel are from external links.Thanks,Rich j.
  3. Hi,I was designing a web page and using frames to link names on the left vertical column to bring up a page in the right vertical column. I found out that frames were outmoded and need to find a new way to do this. There are a few excellent sites that use a frame like application to do this, but it is not frames. I have looked at the CSS for these sites and cannot figure out if that was used to control the left/right display. If CSS controls this, then I'll learn it but looking thru CSS chapters in HTML references, they don't mention anything about frames-type applications.Is CSS being used for this purpose? I've ignored CSS because I have put in my own editing (fonts, style,etc..) for each of my elements.Thanks, Rich J.
  4. Hi,This couldn't be simpler - but I can't get it to work. When the page loads, I get a player (great) but the music plays as soon as I load the page. I can stop and start it with the player controls. Question is: how do I prevent it from playing on load???<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"><html><!-- Created with the CoffeeCup HTML Editor 2008 --><!-- http://www.coffeecup.com/ --><!-- Brewed on 2/18/2009 5:43:35 PM --><head> <title>test</title> <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8" /></head><body><objectclassid="clsid:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"><param name="FileName" value="cbells.swf" ><param name="ClickToPlay=true"><param name="AutoStart=false></param></object></body></html>I would really appreciate any help I can get - I've been working on this for weeks.Rich
  5. Hi,Sorry - the "param" was probably a leftover from the copy/paste i made. I'm using Firefox so I thought that EMBED was legit to use. I gathered from one of the books I use for reference that you can use EMBED as long as you ALSO include OBJECT - a Firefox vs. Explorer difference.Anyway I trying to play a music file I have in SWF format generated from a test program downloaded from CNET -author is Hoo-Tech. (MP3 in - SWF out). That works fine. I can get the music to play but I can't associate it with a jpg image to play on rollover. Aside from that, how do you stop it on a OnMouseOut???Rich J
  6. Hi,I've been trying to play a swf music file on an event (onmouseover) and cannot get it to work. I want to play music when the cursor is on an image and stop it when the mouse moves off it. That was a failure so what i did was to embed the same music from "youtube". I shrunk down the image file from youtube and I intend to put it behind the image I want to use. This does not seem to be the proper way to do it. Is there a way to trap rolling over the image itself without going to youtube. I have the swf file and it plays OK but as I said, I cannot put it all together. The final problem is shutting it off onMouseOut. I can't figure that one out yet. This is the code:<body></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrg5ztBkccw&hl=en&fs=1" style="Z-INDEX: 99; LEFT: 227px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 63px" height="20"type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="false" width="15" height="17"></embed></body>PS: Putting the swf file in instead of the http statement causes the song to play as soon as the page loads - it doesn't wait to click on the URLThanks,Rich J.
