XML fed flash carousel with javascript window open effect

I have a flash carousel ([url removed, login to view]) rotating images which are listed in an xml file which link to manufacturers web pages.

The flash file cannot be altered it just reads the data in from an

externel xml file.

See demo [url removed, login to view]

You do not need to edit the flash

When one of the images are clicked I would like to call a piece of

javascript that opens a new window that loads the web site of that

manufacturer like the [url removed, login to view] example on this page.

[url removed, login to view]

I do not want the web page to load in a new browser window as visitors may not come back to the web site when they have finished looking around the manufacturers web site.

The flash carousel supports lightbox but I would like to use the

multibox instead as I want to show web pages which multibox supports and not larger versions of the manufacturers logos as lightbox only supports.

This is a sample segment from the xml file the carousel uses for its

parameters and image locations / links

As you can see from the example above I have tried to insert some

javascript into the links in order for this to work but I can't get the links to trigger which is why I need someone who is better at javascript than I am.

My advice would be to grab a copy of the carousel from here

[url removed, login to view]

Read how the carousel intergrates with lightbox so you can get a better understanding of what is involved and see if this can be altered to work with multibox instead.

[url removed, login to view]

and grab the multibox script from here

[url removed, login to view]

and see if you can work out a way of triggering the window open effect

from the images as they rotate on the carousel.

If this is possible and I really hope it is I would like to see a

demo version of this before I commit to anything. I prepared to pay around $100 and am open to other solutions to the problem but the flash carousel must remain.
