Topic: Thumbnail caption on rollover - here's how
Here is a great way to get hovering captions on thumbnail rollover:
in thumb.as, add the following as the first line in the onRollover function:
then add the following as the first line in the onRollOut function:
document.getElementById("viewer").title = hovertext;
where "viewer" is the id of your flash viewer object.
As cool as this is, I would like to use the ExternalInterface.call method to do this but I can't get it to work in thumb.as. I import flash.external.ExternalInterface but I still get the error:
There is no method with the name 'ExternalInterface'
Can anyone tell me how to get this to work?
