Opera won't change the style information when I change classname


I have two quicktime players. I load them like this:

<object id="'movie" class="synligAc tiveXSpille" (...)
<embed name="movie class="SynligSp iller (...)

References to the two players are kept in the properties of the object
..loadingPlayer and .activePlayer.

In the style sheet the class (u)synligActive XSpiller changes only the
z-index, while the (u)synligSpille r changes the visibility property.

I have this callback function. The "thisElemen t" reference is simply
the object (this):

moviePlayer.pro totype.switchPl ayer = function (thisElement) {

if (thisElement.ac tivePlayer.clas sName == "synligSpiller" ) {
thisElement.act ivePlayer.class Name = "usynligSpiller ";
thisElement.loa dingPlayer.clas sName = "synligSpiller" ;
thisElement.loa dingPlayer.Stop ();
thisElement.loa dingPlayer.Play ();
} else if (thisElement.ac tivePlayer.clas sName ==
"synligActiveXS piller") {
thisElement.loa dingPlayer.clas sName =
"synligActiveXS piller";
thisElement.act ivePlayer.class Name =
"usynligActiveX Spiller";

var temp = [thisElement.act ivePlayer,
thisElement.loa dingPlayer];
thisElement.loa dingPlayer=temp[0];
thisElement.act ivePlayer=temp[1];
thisElement.mov ieLoaded=true;


After the function is finished the classnames have been changed, but
the player do not change the visibility.

It works in IE and Firefox.

I don't have Opera here, so I can't try this out, but try changing
'class', as well as 'className'.

Hi Stan

Thank, but I had already done it. Changing 'class' was the only way to
make opera change the class. It didnt understand changing of the
'classname' property. As it turns out this problem is also a case with
safari on mac. I have corrected the problem by creating some browser
specific code, but I had to use browser detection rather than feature
detection because both browsers claim to support visibility change of
embedded objects. Browser detection is not a good thing...

Agian thanks for the reply.

Hi there, I have a nav tree similar to the XP Windows Explorer in behavior. It uses styles to underline a row on mouseover, and change the look of a row when clicked. Currently, it is working fine using CSS/Javascript, by calling functions that underline and highlight by passing in IDs. The problem is, I do not want to pass in IDs. Currently it has one the TDs to be changed, but I may need to add one for images (to change the
