Embedding Movies with Flash, Part III: More Properties

Changing the Movie's Visibility

The VISIBILITY property designates whether the movie is visible or invisible on the page. You may both set and get this property. You can set and get Flash properties by their sequence numbers. The VISIBILITY property is no. 7, so you get its value by going:

  mySwf.TGetProperty(timeline, 7);

And you set it in a similar way:

  mySwf.TSetProperty(timeline, 7, value);

Play the following movie by clicking the Play link. Get the VISIBILITY of the movie (true or false) by clicking the Get Visibility link. Make the movie invisible by clicking the Set to Invisible link. Make it visible again by clicking the Set to Visible link. Repeat as many times as you want:

Rewind | Play | Get Visibility | Set to Invisible | Set to Visible

Here is the source code:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" SRC="flashcheck2.js">
</SCRIPT>
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:mySwf2.Rewind();
 return false">Rewind</A> |
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:mySwf2.Play();
 return false">Play</A> |
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:alert(mySwf2.
 TGetProperty('/', 7)); return false">
 Get Visibility</A> |
<A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:mySwf2.
 TSetProperty('/', 7, 0); return false">
 Set to Invisible</A> |
 <A href="javascript://" onclick="javascript:mySwf2.
 TSetProperty('/', 7, 1); return false">
 Set to Visible</A>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
  var mySwf2 = Flash_embedSWF("opener.swf", "opener");
</SCRIPT>
