No, that code should all execute before the page unloads. The question is whether the calls through external interface are synchronous, I think they are.

Is onPageUnload syncronous?

What I'm getting at is you may be able to trap that event, but the page may continue to unload, so your Xerte piece may never get to do anything with the event anyway.

Subject: [Xerte] xerte desktop AS2 externalInterface
Has anyone successfully used Actionscript 2 externalInterface with desktop xerte?

I'm wondering specifically how I would address and call a function in a swf running inside an RLO. The ID of the swf is 'newmenu' but I don't understand what path the function should be called at. I'm trying to call a swf function from javascript in the window that has loaded the RLO.... I think all I need to understand is what path is needed to call the function inside the swf which is running inside the RLO.
