I have got the whole thing set up and doing what I want it to do apart from the last step now!
When an input is triggered, the xml file changes, which in turn is changing the color of an text element on the site using the
document.getElementById('btn' + i).style.color = '#d00';
i also have a innerHTML changing with this as well:
document.getElementById('btn' + i).innerHTML = '• ALERT ' + getXMLValue(xmlData, 'inputname'+i) + '';
which play the swf sound when an input is triggered which is working fine, well, as long as the tab is selected! which means i have to have the monitoring webpage in front of anything and selected to have the sound play.
**What im asking is:**
Is there a way of having the sound play in the background even if a tab isn't selected?
