dynamic audio loading

P: 13
I'm trying to load audio files dynamicly but i got some errors.

my code :
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. File.prototype.OpenAudioFile = function(dPath)
  2. {
  3.     aSound= document.createElement("embed");
  4.     aSound.src = dPath;
  5. = "ses";
  6. = aSound;
  7.     aSound.onload = this.FileDownloaded();
  8. }
it doesnt work and i tried :
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.write("<embed src=" + dPath + " name=" + dPath + " autostart=false onload=this.FileDownloaded()></embed>");
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.write("<bgsound src=" + dPath + " name=" + dPath + " autostart=false onload=this.FileDownloaded()></embed>");
first code didnt work and other two work but when they load i can see just single color, no image, no text nth else. When i use embed tag staticly it works great.waiting for answers...

in Firefox you may run into problems because of the built-in File object (which has nothing to do with <embed>)

other than that:
- line 3: the created object is not attached to the document tree anywhere
- line 7: what does this method do?
- how do you know that <embed> and <bgsound> are members of the File object/interface?

note: you should quote all HTML attribute values (this becomes necessary in XHTML)

as i see in some file loader code "onload" function was used as a callback to check if element loading is completed. after geting message from onload i do something else and i call
in a different class. i can see all properties of aSound and from
and i dont understand with file object but i just tested. i wasnt sure which one will work. i had some base knowledge and i just tested :)

  1. File.prototype.OpenAudioFile = function(dPath)
  2. {
  3.     var rem = document.createElement("div")
  4. = "divv";
  5. = "divId";
  7.     rem.innerHTML = '<embed src="' + dPath + '" autostart="false" name="' + dPath + '"></embed>';
  9.     document.body.appendChild(rem);
  10. }
my sound problem is solved using the way above but when i attach div object to document sound plays there any solution for it?

by the way, im not working on internet browsers, it's a part of a framework for tv. it supports js 1.2.
