    The preferred method of embedding is using Javascript (as stated in
    the wiki). The HTML embed method provides inconsistent results,
    especially when trying to use Javascript to interact with the
    embedded object.<br>
    <br>
    As for the Javascript helper functions described on the wiki, these
    are actually not included in the Flash object and you will need to
    do a copy/paste and either embed them in a Javascript file or
    directly in the HTML. Once they are included in your page, you
    should be able to call the helper functions as needed. If you are
    already doing this and still having problems please let me know.<br>
    <br>
    In addition, you can look at the source for a test page provided by
    our Flash developer to see more code examples and comments:

    that the code works properly on this page for me using Firefox 3.6.<br>
    <br>
    Please let me know if you have other questions or if I can help with
    anything else.<br>

                                <br>
                                in our effort to make use of a NCBO
                                widget, namely the OntologyTree Widget
                                documented in the NCBO wiki (<a
                                  moz-do-not-send="true"
href="http://www.bioontology.org/wiki/index.php/NCBO_Widgets#OntologyTree_Widget"
                                  target="_blank">http://www.bioontology.org/wiki/index.php/NCBO_Widgets#OntologyTree_Widget</a>)
                                as part of the theses we are working on
                                concerning the "Semantic Medical Image
                                Annotation" area we jumped into a
                                problem and need your advice and help.<br>
                                <br>
                                Our goal is to interact with the Flash
                                Bioportal Ontology Tree using the
                                javascript functions you provide in the
                                wiki page. The problem is that these
                                functions will not work both in case of
                                embedding the Flash Application using
                                javascript and using html (with
                                <object> tag). For example, when
                                the function getOntologyName() is fired
                                the javascript console informs us that
                                the app.getOntologyName function of the
                                embedded object does not exist (even
                                though the "app" object exists meaning
                                that the getApp() function works
                                properly). Please note that the problem
                                takes place only in the javascript
                                functions that call a flash object's
                                function (like the getOntologyName()
                                mentioned above) and not in the
                                javascipt functions that listen to the
                                flash object's events like the
                                appComplete(swfID) which work fine.<span> </span><br>
                                <br>
                                We would be grateful if you could check
                                the above functions and tell us if they
                                work properly, so that we can be sure we
                                make the fault in the way we use them.
                                If that is the case, could you provide
                                us more specific details regarding the
                                way to embed them in our web app?<span> </span><br>
                                <br>
                                It is very important for us to make use
                                of the extra functionality you provide
                                though these functions as this will be a
                                serious boost to the functionality of
                                our theses application as a whole.<span> </span><br>
                                <br>
                                Thank you in advance,<br>
