Description

From a Club AJAX user: The focus connect in the flash plugin is creating issue for our IE7 customers, throwing the error, A runtime error has occurred...‘ this.flashMovie’ is null or not an object”

Removing the connect on focus in the flash plugin appears to resolve the issue, but what happens to the user experience by doing so?

//this.connect(this.domNode,”focus”,function(){
//this.flashMovie.focus();
//this.flashMovie.doFocus();
//});

My suggested fix will be to check if the movie exists:

this.connect(this.domNode,”focus”,function(){
    if(!this.flashMovie){ return; }
    this.flashMovie.focus();
    this.flashMovie.doFocus();
});

This way, we should maintain at least a bit of accessibility in other browsers - as much as this works at all with Flash.

Given the decline of IE7, probably this won't be fixed.
