Two questions, one is probably easy, the other I don't
First off, I have a website with a flash start page. When I
load the site, a box appears around the flash movie saying "click
to activate and use this control". If i click on it, it goes away
and everything is normal. I'm not sure why this box appears, I
didn't have this problem on my last flash page, is it something
with the html thats loading the flash???
Secondly, is there a way to have an external flash
application/movie (coffee cup flash blog) load into a section of my
current flash template for my site? I guess I'm asking if there is
an easy way to have this external movie load and be able to specify
which part of my main flash template I want it to load in???
I have done a few searches, and it's probably because i've
been up for quite a while working on the site that I am not
understanding the answers. Hopefully its super simple, and please
be patient with me. Thanks in advance
There are answers for both of your questions, my friend.
The "click to activate.." -thing is due to microsofts new
update. If you don't want this everytime someone loads your page
(who wants it enyways?), you can solve this problem pretty easy
with some extra script below your last </object> tag and
upload a ieupdate.js file. Read more about this problem and how to
fix it in some other thread here on theese boards.
Secondly, yes, you can load an external flash movie and
interact it with your main .fla. There should be a tutorial about
this on flashkit.com, actionscript.org or another site.
