    flash and IE 6 active-x

    I still could not solve my problem with IE 6 and the blocking of flash interpreted as active-x controls.

    Still quite new with flash, I made a nice little film with works perfectly in Firefox.
    It works also in IE 6, but I always have to activate this idiotic bar.
    And, in IE the flash movie does not stream.

    I found the solution for the non-streaming with Satay, and it works fine.

    Then I tried the ObjectSwap Javascript to avoid the problem with the activation bar in the IE.
    It does not work!!! I could not even make the example-page work in IE without having the same problem again with the activation bar.

    Anything I did not check? Maybe I forgot something simple.... and how comes I CAN see other flash movies from other side WITHOUT having to activate the bar??

    Thanks for any advice,
    Chunga

    Check out swfobject.js (v2) - I have zero probs with this one.

    Thanks to you, Mr. Webdesign Perth ...with this script it works... you saved my day....

    just a small detail is left:
    The css format for the container in which the flash is reproduced...
    I keep the format in an extra css file together will all the other css formats.

    that works with the IE, but, rarely, the FF now ignores the format (it did not when I had the flash object directly inserted into the html). How comes?

    I would send the link, but this forum does not let me do that...

    (there should be a frame around the container).
    I tried it with inserting the css code directly into the html-page, but that works neither.

    Has anyone an idea?

    I think I know what you mean.

    Wrap the Flash container div in another div and give that one the border. I always also make sure the Flash container div has width and height specified in css.

    You can post links in this forum - like this Perth's top web designer
