:confused: I'd be really grateful of knowing the code to call the external Interface function via JavaScript, from an HTML link in DW cs3, to play timeline of swfobject – not resulting in the flash movieclip disapearing or the ScrollTo.js query from failing!
I am hoping the solution is fairly simple to control the timeline of the only embedded swfobject using ActionScript3 - gotoAndplay ("lable") command...
As you can see from the code I am using, the defining bits are missing!
Any help would really go along way to meeting my deadline.

**JavaScript** – to call Flash event from HTML button link, placed between head tags

function callExternalInterface()
var flashMovie =;

menu_up is the string


<div id="btn_up"><a href="#top" name="charDev" id="charDev" onclick="">top</a></div>

The pane navigation div uses ScrollTo.js query, and it is through this link I need calling back to the embedded "menubtns.swf" (nested in "AS3Menu_javascript.swf") *to play 5 frames* of this movieclip, via a JS function:~.
Below, is the embedded .swf code, using swfobject.js with allowScriptAccess=always set.

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" name="menu" width="251" height="251" id="menu">
    <param name="movie" value="../~Assets/Flash/AS3Menu_javascript.swf" />
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" />  
    <param name="movie" value="ExternalInterfaceScript.swf" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="../~Assets/Flash/AS3Menu_javascript.swf" width="250" height="250">
    <p>Alternative content</p>

**AS3 / Flash**

import flash.external.ExternalInterface;flash.system.Security.allowDomain(/sourceDomain/);

ExternalInterface.addCallBack("menu_up", this, resetmenu);
function resetmenu(){
