The Container object exposes information about the application that is executing the presentation. The Container object has no constructor because it is always available as the container property of the Player object. Currently two containers are available: ActiveX and AnarkMediaPlayer.

Container Examples

// Make sure the Player is available  
if ( player != null )
	// Make sure the command is available on the container 
	if ( player.containerName == "AnarkPlayer" )  
		player.container.launch( "Acrobat.exe Data.pdf" , 0 )
