Hi there,
is it possible to call an external JavaScript function from an panorama area hotspot to open the next panorama?
(I tried javascript:onclick="pano2();" , where the "pano2()" is the function that opens the next Panorama within the Html, but it didn't work.)

Thank you for any help!

Hi Hopki,
Thanks for the advice. I've come across the API before - but in fact I'm working without any GG template or the GG js file and without any flash!
I try to make my own Quicktime panorama module, but if it comes to hotspots I'm missing something: In flash we use the IDs and proxies to identify a hotspot marker on the floorplan to the hotspot itself (and vice versa). But with Quicktime this is not possible.

Any ideas? Or am I missing something (else ;) )?
Best regards, W.

It seems that it's not possible to call a function from a Quicktime hotspot anymore (or at least not much more than ... Script.pdf
Important: Starting with QuickTime 7.1.5, you can no longer issue javascript:// URLs or call JavaScript functions
directly from within a QuickTime movie. This feature was removed from QuickTime for security reasons. This
document includes techniques for working around this change.
