"mp3player" Controlled by JavaScript Code

This section provides a tutorial example on how to control 'mp3player' using JavaScript code like document.getElementById('xxx').SetVariable().

mp3player can also be controlled by JavaScript code, because it supports these properties through the SetVariable() function:

SetVariable("player:jsPlay","") - Starts to play the music
SetVariable("player:jsPause","") - Pauses the play
SetVariable("player:jsStop","") - Stops the play
SetVariable("player:jsVolume",n) - Sets the volume to n

Here is my tutorial example on how to control mp3player with JavaScript codes:

<script type="text/javascript">
   function play() {
   function pause() {
   function stop() {
   function volume(n) {

<p>Controlling mp3player with JavaScript Code:

<p>[ <a href="javascript:play()">Play</a> 
   | <a href="javascript:pause()">Pause</a>
   | <a href="javascript:stop()">Stop</a> 
   | <a href="javascript:volume(0)">Volume=0</a>
   | <a href="javascript:volume(100)">Volume=100</a>
   | <a href="javascript:volume(200)">Volume=200</a>

<object id="myFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" 
   width="200" height="20">
   <param name="wmode" value="transparent"/>
   <param name="movie" value="player_mp3_maxi.swf"/>
   <param name="FlashVars"


If you open mp3player_JavaSript_test.html in Firefox or IE, you should see several links that allows you to control mp3player via JavaScript codes.

I have included the above code here on this page. If you are reading the Web version of this book, you should be able to see mp3player displayed and you can play it. Otherwise, you will see a static image.

Flash application my3player is integrated here. You can use these JavaScript links to control it:
[ Play | Pause | Stop | Volume=0 | Volume=100 | Volume=200 ]
