Killing Javascript window from Shockwave

Killing Javascript window from Shockwave

Killing Javascript window from Shockwave

My other question was...

Currently, I have a static web page from which I launch a popup window--using Javscript's window.open()... When this popup window appears, a Shockwave movie loads and runs in it. At the very end of the movie, the user clicks a Quit button in the Shockwave movie and the movie stops--using Lingo's quit. However, I was wondering if there is a way to tell the Quit button to kill the popup window that the Shockwave movie is running in (but not kill the parent window that launched the popup)...


RE: Killing Javascript window from Shockwave

sure is, have a javascript function (and VBscript for IE users, who I hope we all are)that has a command of self.close() (check for the syntax of the close command).
then all you have to do is call an external event (for VBscirpt) or openurl(javascript:functionname) for netscape from your shockwave movie.

sorry that this description is a tad crude but you should be able to work out the little details
